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
drop trans pan with drain pan under the trans
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.
Have the transmission fluid changed. Use only Honda ATF!
ZF-1 transaxle fluid
You need to get the trans fluid changed immediatley
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
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.
might be vacuum linkage, maybe low on trans fluid, computer
There is a dipstick that looks just like the one for the oil.
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.
A "speed" sensor can affect the shifting of the trans.
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
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.
best case senario, low trans fluid. worse case senario bad transmission.
Change the fluid and the trans filter; a dirty trans filter can cause this.
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.
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
Your bands are gone, you need to replace them.
Check the fluid level first, it may be low or empty.
== == If it is a automatic, there are cooling lines that run from the trans to the trans cooler, which is the lower part of the radiator. This allows the trans fluid to be cooled down and then sent back to the trans casing. The trans cooler is a miniature radiator, with fins that disperse the heat from the trans, to keep it running cool and happy. The trans fluid and the engine coolant don't mix, obviously. There is a line from the trans to the cooler, and another one that brings the cooled fluid back to the trans case. Don't disconnect this line while the engine is running, as it is under high pressure and will spray all over the place.
You did not mention if it is automatic or manual. In either case check the transmission fluid level. Low levels can cause sluggish shifting and damage over time. If the level is normal then check the fluid itself. It should be a reddish color. If the transmission oil is dark then it may need to be changed with fresh trans fluid as well as a new trans filter. If the fluid has a chocolate milk look it or consistency is thick then oil has leaked into the transmission fluid and needs to be taken to a shop for service. If these steps do still do not fix the problem then the gears could have worn or broken teeth and will need to be replaced either by rebuilding the transmission or buying a new one. - jedgell233
