Check your Transmission Fluid level. If it is low add just enough Acura A/T fluid ATF DW-1 to reach the full mark. Warning: Do not overfill and use only genuine Acura ATF DW1 fluid and nothing else. Check it according to the owners manual instructions. If it is full then you need to seek professional help and have the fluid filter changed. Insist they use only Acura Fluid and no substitute which they may try to use or your transmission will not sift properly.

It may just need a fluid/filter change and then again it may be a more serious problem. My advice is to take it to a Acura/Honda dealer or trusted transmission shop for service immediately. Continuing to drive in this condition may do serious damage to the transmission.

After the mechanic finds that the transmission is shifting rough, he will inform the customer of the problem and do further tests to determine the cause of the problem. After that he will take the appropriate steps to resolve the issue.

Use nothing but OEM Acura or Honda ATF DW-1 automatic transmission fluid. Do not use any other fluid that claims to be a replacement or you will suffer rough shifts.

you have to little transmission oil in your box.

Using any other fluid other than genuine Honda fluid or a fluid that meets the exact requirements of Honda fluid will cause rough or harsh shifts.

Honda transmission fluid is specifically formulated by Honda for the transmission they designed and built. Using any other fluid will cause rough shifts. That is why you should only use genuine Honda fluid.

Use nothing but genuine Honda ATF DW-1. Do not use any fluid that claims to be a substitute or you will have rough shifts.

Wrong type A/T fluid installed or a internal transmission problem. Have the fluid changed and use nothing but genuine Honda ATF. The use of any other fluid will cause exactly what you are experiencing, rough shifts.

A car will sound very rough and jerky when it shifts between gears. It may stall and almost seem to sputter. This is a dangerous situation as it can completely cut out suddenly.

The transmission fluid filter could be clogged. There could also be an electronic issue, run the test codes on the vehicle computer to see if a problem is shown.

There are many signs of a bad transmission and it is important to know them. Some ways to tell if transmission is not working right, would be rough shifting, leaks, and warning lights on the dashboard blinking.Ê

That's easy, the shifts will seem to not be as fluid. They'll be rough, the car might seem to not want to initially move even though the tires are on gravel and not rotating at an excess speed.

Check idle adjustment (rpm) then check timing, then check for misfire-start there.

I have an 05 sentra that shifts rough from 1rst to 2nd, especially when cold. You find any answers? thanks, Brian

I doubt it is a transmission problem. It sounds like the engine is in need of some attention maybe even some motor mounts.

Could be broken trans mount or engine mounts. Not sure what is meant by riding rough.

If timing is bad on a 1990 Acura Integra they car will either run incredibly rough out not at all. To fix the timing be sure to correctly align the distributor to the right factory specified degree.

transmission issues, but could be the starter also if you had a rough start.

No a bad convrter can not damage your transmission however it will make your vehicale run rough

You may feel a jerk in the car when it automatically shifts from one gear to the next; or it may feel like the transmission is 'slipping' or can't catch a gear when accelerating; or it may be difficult to accelerate or drive. All of these are early signs of transmission problems. Transmission problems can be very costly and its worth your time and money to do the recommended maintenance. The first signs of trouble are rough shifting and changing shift points and speeds. You may also have a transmission light for over heating transmission fluid. Take these warning signs seriously.

I'm assuming your in an automatic transmission. The only thing that i can think of is your in the rough range where you transmission thinks it needs to shift then doesn't or vise versa. Check gear ratios and timing.

do you have all forward gears? if yes, you have broken reverse gear (one turning the spin into reverse) in the transmission, if you miss also some forward gears it shifts rough, tranny is to be rebuilt... either way it's expensive fix

That'll be dependent on how well the car is maintained, how rough/easy it's handled, and how lucky you are.
