Honda Civic DX

Why would a 1989 Honda Civic DX 1.t automatic make a clunk when put in reverse if it is cold but work OK when warmed up?

The fluid is thicker when cold so you get a harsher engagement when you put it in reverse. Also, part of that problem is that the transmission is wearing out but it's highly unlikely that you need a rebuild very soon. Check the transmission mount to make sure it's not broken because if it is, it'll torque upwards and bang when it's put in reverse. You can check that by putting it in reverse with your foot on the brake and tapping the gas pedal.

Yes. It is plug and play. You can use manual and automatic clusters in a manual, but you have to use automatic clusters in an automatic car.
