How do you know if the transmission is bad on a 1999 Honda Accord?

You can tell if the transmission is bad on almost any car by looking for jerky acceleration when driving, especially when moving from low to higher speeds. If the car is jerky, or seems to be having trouble shifting, it is likely a problem with the transmission.

Can you suggest how I might fix the problem on my CRV automatic 2001 as it is very jerky when moving off and needs very delicate and gentle close control to make it smooth?

I am not a mechanic but I do own a 2000 CR-V on which I do a little of my own work. From your description it isn't clear just what might be causing the 'jerky' feeling but before you consider the transmission, I would recommend having your motor mounts checked. A broken motor mount could be a possible cause the jerky movement you are experiencing. If it is not a bad motor mount then I'm sorry to tell you that you might be looking at some transmission work. Just how expensive that might be can only be determined by a competent repair shop. There is no "home" remedy that will solve a transmission problem.
