Rough Shift

I have a 1986 Prelude Si with 174,000 miles, although it is cosmetically in wonderful shape and it drives like new, except for some rough shifting from the automatic transmission. I cannot detect any slippage and the harder I drive it the smoother it shifts. I am thinking it is time for a fluid and filter change and hope it is not the torque converter or worse, the transmission. I have an 1988 Accord Lxi (with 275,000 miles!!!) that did the same thing when I first bought it, and now it does not do it at all. I think I put up with it in the Accord because I bought it as a cheap beater 2nd car and was not all that concerned, although I am much more interested in keeping my Prelude pristine.

Re: Rough Shift

It doesnt have gear oil if it has a torq converter it has ATF (automatic transmission fluid). but if you meant clutch the yes its gear oil.
