Your clutch plates have lasted 25 years. It is probably time to get some new plates. Have your dealer get you a set of Barnett clutch plates.

If my car wont go into gear what could be the cause? When i got the 1992 honda accord lx i was having to start out in 2nd than 3rd now it wont shift and i cant go past 70 without it revving up.

Normally you should not be able to start the car without it being in 'Neutral' or 'Park'. First try changing the starter inhibitor switch on the transmission. Next check out the selector rod for the gear position, this connects between the bottom of gear selector and the input selector shaft on the transmission. Next check out you fluid level in the auto-box on the autobox fluid dipstick. If low you can add extra fluid by the dipstick tube. Ordinarily it is suggested that the fluid level is checked when the engine is running but in park.cannot start the car unless in gear I suggest you do not do this for safety reasons.

My Honda cr250 wont shift from second to third. I pull up on the shifter and it wont let me. it goes into first second and neutral just fine?????

hopefully the simple fix is the gear stick is bent or adjusted high and hitting the case or something, apart from that the right hand side cover has to come off and check the selecter, if thats ok it may be internal gear problem

1994 honda civic 1.5 16v stalling after pressing accelerator from idle

Another place to look is your IAC, or Idle air control valve. It is bolted to the back of the intake manifold, and can be removed and cleaned. It is usually the cause of most Honda Idle problems.

your honda has a fuzzy logic/computer operated gearbox.(auto)the first 1/3 of the accelerator pedal is for economy/smooth changes.the second 1/3 is for "normal"? driving and the last third( is for idiots like me,power crazy) is for quick passing.i am assuming you have not had this explianed to you by the salesperson, yeah right, like they would....all this is controlled by the onboard computer....if it had a fault it would show ..
