Did you install Honda fluid? If not then you need to drain it again and install genuine Honda fluid. Honda uses a special fluid and the use of any other fluid will cause shifting problems. One other point is that Hondas are a little different on how you check the fluid. Since an over-filled transmission will go bad, you'll want remember these two important steps: First, the easiest way is to check your Honda's transmission fluid is when the engine is cold & not running. Never check & adjust the fluid level when the engine is running & the transmission is hot. . .you'll over-fill it. Second, push the dipstick down into the lock position when checking: if you don

Use only Honda brand ATF-Z1 transmission fluid. There is no substitute, no matter what anyone tells you. Use another fluid and you will experience shifting problems. I would find a Honda dealer with a Wynns trans flush machine and have the trans flushed. This is the only way to remove all the fluid. Change the fluid every 50,000 miles.

There is no trans filter on the Accord. You drain the fluid just like you would your motor oil. Only about 1/3 of the total capacity will drain. Be sure to add only the amount that was drained and use Honda fluid only.

Low fluid, Trans computer that needs a software flash at the dealer, failing trans, etc

might be vacuum linkage, maybe low on trans fluid, computer

Delayed shifting is because the transmission fluid is not warm enough to move through the internals of the transmission. You may need a transmission service,,,,,fluid change, new filter, etc. Transmission Fluid degrades with age.

A "speed" sensor can affect the shifting of the trans.

There is a dipstick that looks just like the one for the oil.

On any vehicle, the filter and trans fluid should be done at least every 50,000 miles. I actually change ALL my trans fluid every 30,000.

Check your shift solenoids that are mounted on top of the transmission. Also check your trans fluid. If you haven't had the trans filter changed, get it changed also. NOTE: On almost all year model Accords, the transmission must be taken down and apart to change the trans filter. So if you don't know how to do this, than dont try it.

yes your transmission fluid should be changed and should be changed every 80,000kms

best case senario, low trans fluid. worse case senario bad transmission.

Shifting of the automatic transmission should be smooth. Try changing the transmission oil and filter. If you take it to be done make sure you specify that you want the pan dropped and the filter replaced, as many places suck out the old fluid and do not change the filter.

It is called "lifetime trans fluid". That is true, if you never change it your trans will die and thus it did last the trans lifetime. Have it changed by a pro with correct ZF trans fluid, it will cost about $30.00 per qt. but you will ruin the trany if you use any other kind.

Change the fluid and the trans filter; a dirty trans filter can cause this.

User Avatar

it probably needs a tune up an a intake system flush.. an as far as hard shifting if its a automatic you more than likely need to change the filter an fluid in the trans

User Avatar

There is a drain plug on the right side of the trans(viewed from rear). There is no servicable filter w/o dissasembling the trans. After draining fluid fill through dipstick tube and off u go.

User Avatar

You can"t check the trans fluid,we just took ours to the shop.The changed the fluid and done an inspection,cost around $100.00

User Avatar

The first thing to check is that your transmission fluid level is correct. If it is too low the trans cannot pressurize. DO NOT Overfill.

ATF+4 is required. Any other types can and will cause shifting issues.
