Have your transmission flushed.($120-140) My 87 Accord did the same thing. Unfortunately, it needed a rebuild a year later. Good luck. Is level low?

There are several things that can cause your Honda Accord station wagon automatic transmission not to shift down. The most common cause is low transmission fluid.

One of the reasons a Honda Accord with an automatic transmission may not shift out of first is there is not enough transmission fluid. The more likely reason is that the transmission has something broken in it and needs to be serviced or replaced.

If they are Automatics it will not shift properly. It would bolt up if they are the same engine.

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

There could be a number of reasons why your truck will not shift properly. There could be something wrong with your clutch or transmission.

A hard shift from first gear to second gear in the Honda Accord could be because of a linkage problem with the transmission. It could also be a problem with the transmission screen needing to be cleaned or low transmission fluid.

If you want your Honda transmission to shift properly do not use anything but genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid. Use only Honda ATF DW-1 fluid. Use any substitute at your own risk.

Low transmission fluid will cause your transmission to not shift properly. Check the transmission fluid and make sure it is at the appropriate level.

You need to have the transmission computer checked for codes. It will default into second gear only when a malfunction is detected.

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

The transmission computer uses sensors located on both the engine and transmission for shift timing.

nope the transmission shifts not the engine

a manual shift "slapstick" option, letting you shift the transmission manually, but it still has safety features to keep you from damaging the engine or transmission

I have a similar issue my '88 accord LXI automatic does not have reverse and it grinds in park and drive. Told the shift fork in the transmission and shift for bushing are going out and the tranny needed to be rebiult

It is a 4 speed automatic. Therefore it will shift 3 times. It will shift from 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, and 3rd to 4th.

Removing the transmission on a 1998 Honda Civic takes time as it engine will need to be remove as well. The engine mounts will need to be removed, coolant drained, hoses removed and shift linkage removed. When everything is properly loosened, using an engine hoist, lift the motor out. Disconnect the transmission from the engine and replace the unit.

the two sensors on a transmission communicate with the computer to the engine and tells the transmission when to shift up or down....

It disengages the engine from the driveshaft allowing you to shift the gears on your transmission.

Use only genuine Honda ATF Z1 fluid in your Honda. Do not let anyone use a universal or replacement fluid no matter what they tell you. If you do your transmission will not shift properly.
