Question about 2000 Honda Prelude
Hi my prelude started by slipping out of gear, and was losing transmission fluid. Not it will not go into to gear at all, and I am hoping against hope that it is not a replacement gearbox I need. Since it was losing fluid, could it be a problem with low pressure, due to a leaking seal or something?
I have also seen some post suggesting solenoid problems, and torque convertor problems? Might these be the cause?
I got local garage to look at the car, and their verdict was that the box needed to replaced, although they gave no explanation as to why - I think they're experience with this car was not great.
Just on another note, when I topped up the transmission fluid, I used an ATF fluid supplied by the local Motor Factors, and not genuine Honda Fluid. Would this have any bearing on the problem?
I own a 1999 Honda Prelude base model with a automatic sequential tiptronic trans. If your willing to try a couple of things you might get lucky a save your trans. If my suggestions doesn't help your trans
performance then it time to pull out the pocket book. Drain the trans
fluid. Flush the cooler. Remove the 2 solenoid right by the starter motor. Most likely the 2 metal screens are plugged up. Clean them up with parts cleaner. Then wire the solenoids to a battery so when you spray into them with the parts cleaner you can energize the solenoids while spraying cleaner into the 2 ports. The purpose of this is to free up anything that could be making the solenoids stick. Reassemble the
solenoids back onto the trans. Fill the trans with 3 Qts. of OEM Honda fluid. Run the gears through the gears. Then drain that fluid. Do this one more cycle. On the last fill pour a bootle of Lube Guard Additive to condtion the fluid. Good Luck

I can tell you that the gearbox is done....
what happened is when you run low on fluid, your transmission will start to slip. first it will slip the third gear then the second, then the drive and finally the reverse...until you can't shift no more
there are bans in the transmission that needs to be in fluid at all time or they will wear out really fast resulting in gearbox failliure.
so to get at that point you had to have a leak somewhere...
but you can always have your transmission rebuilt.

Tips for a great answer:
gear assembly and transmission needs inspection. Also check the transmission
fluid level. Also is the fluid getting leaked or its low.
