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

2002 Accord transmission oil replacement?

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.

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.

Why wont my 1990 Honda accord shift right and the sport shift light blinks?

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.

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.

Does a 1997 Accord transmission line connect to the radiator?

== == 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.

Cavalier 2003 not shifting gears correctly?

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
