Question about 1994 Honda Accord
The car was driving just fine and i went into a drive thru and when i put the car back in gear it wouldn't accelerate. it was as if it was in nuetral. it goes in reverse but won't go forward. there was no previous noises before this happened. and now the transmission fluid smells as if its burnt.
Honda uses internally in the transmission,a shift fork,very much like a manual trans,to change from Forward to Reverse,and vice versa.It is likely this fork isn''t moving.The best thing to do is pull trouble codes out of the car,as a malfunctioning sensor or solenoid (they are mounted on the outside of the trans) could cause a problem.Your year Honda is a manual code read,and their is a procedure to follow to get the codes out of the car.Passenger side front kick panel has to be removed,a blue 2 wire connector located,then a jumper wire is used to short the connector out.Insert the jumper wire,then turn the ignition key to the on position,engine off.This puts the car into diagnostic mode.The "S" light,or gear indicator light on the dash will flash a series of numbers,and these are your codes.You have to write down the number of flashes.For example.....2 flashes,followed by 4 flashes would be a code 24.When the codes are pulled,they then have to be looked up on a chart..then the code is diagnosed and repaired.The problem could still be internal,but external causes have to be addressed first.
