Question about 1991 Honda CRX
Abrupt shift between 1st & 2nd, seem to be worse when engine is under load ( Acceleration- AC running ). The car's Trans has 145,000 mi. And the fluide was just changed with no effect.
Honda requires a highly friction modified fluid,or additive.Drain the fluid and replace with genuine Honda fluid.This should calm down the shifts a little.Fluid level is checked with the engine OFF.Also on your year Honda,there is a cable that runs from the accellerator linkage under the hood,down to the transmission.This cable is responsible for shift timing,and shift FEEL,and it is adjustable for these purposes.At the transmission are 2....12 mm nuts jammed against each other with a steel bracket in between.Loosen the nuts,and then the cable can be adjusted.For a softer shift feel,loosen the nuts,and take the end of the cable,and move it TOWARD the little arm (down) sticking out from the trans.This effectively makes the cable SHORTER resulting in softer shifts.For harder and later shifts,move the cable the opposite way,effectively making the cable LONGER.Beware though.adjusting the cable TOO much towards the softer side can cause the trans to start slipping and actually burn up clutch packs inside the trans,so some common sense is needed when adjusting the cable.Good luck,and remember to rate this solution.
