Question about 1998 Honda Civic
My 98 honda civic lx runs great in the mornings or whenever I start to drive it for the first time throughout the day. Then once the car gets warmed up the transmission starts to slip everytime I begin to accelerate from a dead stop. Sometimes the engine will begin to rattle if I give it too much gas as the transmission slips. The check engine light came on and I got a computer reading that told me something about the gear ratios. I had my transmission fluid changed and the problem still persist. What can be wrong? Please help
In your trans mission you have solenoids that are run by pressures inside. often times if you have slipping it is due to these solenoids eith not opening or being stuck open. a quick fix for this is to purchase this additive from lucas oil products it cost about 10 dollars at either Napa,Oreillys,etc this should take care of the problem of the gum up that happens quite frequently in vehicles that don't have the trans fluid changed at regular intervals. when you had the trans fluid changed did they just hook it up to a machine or did they drop the pan and replace the filter for the trans?...a plugged filter can cause this problem as well. the third cause could be that your trans control module is faulty. this is what tells the trans to shift according to your engines rpm..........hope this helps.........please rate this
