Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

This probably sounds stupid but I usually jus slam the pedal on reg drive instead of the SS and it picks up not too bad and it goes. Can't complain except for the fact that manual goes waaaaay faster!!!

But yea...when I bought my Lude it came with the tranny cooler in the front which i'm lucky!!! *crosses fingers

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

Has the 2000 auto prelude model made changes to its tranny that'll make it resistant to failure as well? I just bought one a few days ago and am worried it'll give out one day.

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

from what i know the 2000 and 2001 tranny were "made better" but not sure if they wont go out one they probably will do all trannys do at some point but there should be a warranty im pretty sure its under either 80,000 or 100,000 miles and dealers repair them free of charge thats what i was told at Honda here on long island not sure bout anywhere else

as long as you dont beat on the sportshift, and such, maintain the fluid.... should be good just search a lot of questions have been answered already about this and cost and other things. write up have been done to do the swap. you can also read through this thread too and see what other questions have been answered

If you can afford it... a 5spd swap. honestly. I've never had an auto tranny, and not knowing the extent of your "neutraling out" problem, I would say have it rebuilt(with 99+ tranny parts) or 5 spd swap. honestly if you go to a good shop they should be able to tell you if it needs rebuilding and what not. I would personally find a shop to do a 5 spd swap though. just my .02 cents...But I'm no expert by any means...

Personally I would at least get it checked out. Maybe flush the trans fluid and put new fluid in. Other than that take it easy and stay out of SS. SS will kill the trans faster than anything. I would also be very deliberate when shifting( i.e. from park to reverse and reverse to drive.) Make sure you are completely stopped before shifting. Just in general be very easy on the car. if the symptom aren't too bad yet then you may have some time left but its kind of hard to tell. I would personally start saving money. Sorry man its just one of those things that can only be avoided for so long until it fails completely...

hope this helps you some, sorry I can't be more informative for ya...

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

if you dont have that kind of cash i say just find another auto tranny for now cheap like i did, then save up for the 5spd swap otherwise your going to go thru them. otherwise best thin would be what (lazar) if you take it to a shop it should get rebuilt with 99+ parts. but your going to deffinatly have to do a 5spd swap if you want to keep you lude.

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

aight thanks. and what is the difference between an SH prelude and the base model because if I do find a 5spd tranny, does it matter if it an SH or not?

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

sup guys, i have a 99 auto lude and i've been using the tiptronic since day one, but recently when i need to downshift for more pull i've been noticing a smell as if something was burning, i check the temperature gauge when this happens and it seems fine at jus below half. there is no visible smoke tho but i kno for sure it is coming from the hood and the smell travels through the air conditioning vents in the middle. Pulled over, popped the hood open, no smoke but just the smell...what could it be? btw i just had it serviced about 2 months ago.. please help!

ehhhh all i gotta say is stay out of tip tronic, drive "normal" if you want the tranny to last if not start saving for a 5spd... trust me read over this thread from what people have done and gone thru you dont want to ruin your car, and have to go through headaches as well. as for the smell does it smell as oil or just something burning???

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

I recently bought a 97 prelude base auto with 124k on her. The car broke down on me 5 months later so I had to change the timing belt, water pump, auto tensioner, and a couple of seals. My main concern is that the tranny will give up on me so I was wondering if I can buy the upgrades from the 99-01 models to prevent this? If so, what kind of parts will I be purchasing, how much will it cost, and where I can buy them?

no one actually really knows what they changed. all the parts numbers are the same and whatnot. my advice, start saving for a 5spd swap

x2 yup that or if you really want those 99-01 then find a cheap auto tranny to be safe with incase $$$ isnt there. but deff in the long run start saving for the 5spd swap

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

to haze..do u have an antifreeze leak? It very well could be the smell of burning coolant. I had that problem and it takes a long time to burn off. If you go out at night start your car, let it run for 20 minutes, turn on your headlights, you might see a littlke white smoke coming from under the hood...if so its coolant

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

Have you contacted honda? I had a 2k1 Acura Cl and my local stealership replaced my transmission twice (Prior to going out on me both times)free of charge. Might want to give your local dealership a call and see if they can help.

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

well, what do you think? put in a 5 spd, get more whp out of it, and have the peace of mind it wont self destruct. or put in another auto that you KNOW will eventually self destruct? lol

I have a 87 Lude and my car stutters and shakes in gear when stopped but not in park and I was told it may be the transmission so can anyone help me with that so I know what's up.
