will you probably have a bad transmission take it to a shop and check it out. Mine is having the same problem. First I'm going to change the transmission fluid. It could be dirty. The transmission has a filter, which is just a metal screen, but this is not servicable without removing the transmission which could break the bank and is almost certainly not the problem. I will take mine to the Honda dealer to change the fluid as Honda has a special kind of Automatic Transmission Fluid for it's vehicles and I've read that any other type of fluid may damage the tranny. If this doesn't solve the problem it could be a bad connection with one of the transmission control solinoids, something as simple as crud in the wrond place or carbon collected on the contacts. If the dealership transmission flush/change doesn't fix the problem I'm going to investigate using the "Transmission Control Module" or TCM(the computer that monitors the transmission) using the "service check connector", located under the kick panel to the right of the passengers right foot, and a paperclip. That should give you some leads.

You may have a broken spring which disengages the transmission allowing it to shift or it is bad linkage going to the transmission.

The transmission may need a flush and filter, or in my 92 accord I solved the problem merely by changing the transmissions computer.

If you push the sport button you should see the light on the dash come on. The Sport Mode just changes the shift point of the transmission to a higher rpm.

A 1991 Honda Accord could be overheating if the radiator has a leak. There could also be a problem with the head gasket.

Slipping, over reving, sounds like rocks in the trans.

It is the Sport Mode for the transmission which charges the shift points. You may have inadvertently turned it on. Should be a button on the shifter to turn it off. Now if you cannot turn it off, it indicates a problem with the transmission.
