but still like ive said before throught out this thread if you can find a cheap auto in good condition, buy it and while driving on that one save $$ for now. just remember not to drive wild with the 2nd tranny if you go that route. if you have $$ saved up right now or some money start finding parts.

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

my 2 cents are this..... i bought my lude a few months ago it was an auto... bought it with a slight slipping between 1st and 2nd.. didnt know about the chronic problem until i joined this site ..... ever since then my tranny progressivly got worse.. so this past weekend it finnaly died and this is what i did... i found another auto tranny.. i paid nly 550 for it so at the time that was the most sensible thing to do.. i just bolted up the tranny yesterday and it drives 110% beter.. a few things i noticed that u guys can check on... on the back side of the tranny near the firewall there is 3 plugs that go to your tranny one of them sits a little lower than the rest and kinda hangs on the body of the tranny.. this plug controlls the low pressure side of the tranny. when i was dropping out my old one i noticed that the plug had melted off the wiregoing back to the harness. my guess is that because of the location and the heat factor inside the bay either that plug always melts or atleast the connection comes loose.. this is why the car idles out in betwen gears ... (lack of low end pressure) so maybe u guys can check ur plugs make sure everything is intact. so after my new tranny was in i went for a light cruise to break in the tranny this is what i noticed>>> after 5 minutes of driving i literally saw the heat waves rising off my hood...... the auto tranny just kicks way too much heat.. my suggestion if u can afford it 5 spd it cause ur gonna put the auto back in and its gonna fry... if u do put the autp back in though i reccomend only use HONDA genuine tranny fluid for auto cars.. and if u can purchase the flex a lite tranny cooler thats made for big block american cars its about 80 or 90 bucks... but it will definitly preserve your tranny.. ps when u try to buty the flexalite there gonna tell u u need the 40 dollar one not true even though the 80 dollar one is for bigger cars itll still fit inside... bolt it on and watch it cool

ive done all the options for the lude trust me i know, 5spd deff the number one option tho, but it all depends on what type of budget you have and what you can afford thats what it comes to in the bottom line.

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

Hi all. My Prelude is doing something similar, but it doesn't follow the pattern in this thread so I was hoping that you all might be able to help out.

About once a month, directly after starting the car and shifting to drive (auto transmission), the gas pedal doesn't seem to have any effect for about five seconds. It idles at the normal speed and I can floor the gas, but the engine does not rev. When the magical five seconds is done, the car works normally.

It does seem more prevalent after backing out of a parking space, but my sample might not be large enough because the problem has only shown itself four or five times. It has done it once when I only pulled forward.

Thanks!

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

well the first symtoms is the hard shifting if you not experiencing that then it might not be the tranmission itself maybe soemthing else....since when has this been happening? if it was your transmission and you used it as a daily driver then it would get worst as you drive on not once in a while.

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

This has been going on for a few months and only happens when I start the car. I drive it every day and the shifting doesn't seem to be affected. Hmmmm...

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

my '97 tranny went bad last year. and since Honda doesnt allow the dealerships to look in them and see what is wrong so i had to get it completely replaced. it cost me a little over $2000 to replace but it was totally worth it because when the lude was cold , 1st and 2nd gear would stick. VERY SCARY!!!

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

Had my eye on a Prelude for a very very long time, so I suppose the woman that decided to t-Bone and total my car was really just trying to tell me to get another car. Since I don't have much experience with manuals, I wanted to get the automatic. However, reading this thread has made me reconsider.

I just want to make sure that these "transmission problems" are only in the automatic and not the 5 speed....right?

From what I have read, the problem seems to come from the auto tranny running a little too hot, but does the 5 speed also do the same? Is a transmission cooler recommended for the 5 speed as well to ensure it lives a long life?

Thanks for any help.

5spds are fine. just remember to keep the tranny fluid full and change it on the recommended time periods and itll last forever

x2, in addition a lot of people report worn synchros, this can be caused by grinding the gears. So, just be careful and you should be good. My 5spd has been nice and robust the whole time I've owned it, just don't beat the ever loving piss out of it and everything should remain kosher.

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

Interesting to read these issues with the auto-trans. I have a 97 Auto and it seems to hesitate when it shifts especially at slower speeds. Like downhills I gotta feed it gas to get it to shift. I had my mechanic drive it, and the thing is, if you lean on it in general it seems to shift fine. My mechanic said "These things are geared to drive it like ya stole it, thats why its like that. Just drive it"
What do you guys think? 117K on her. Swapping for a 5 speed isn't an option for us, my wife cant drive them, and I'm 50 years old, I only shift gears for money.

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

if its like a family car just get another 99-01 auto tranny since you wont be beating on it, otherwise teach her to drive stick. seriously tho if you wnat the lude for long and have any fun with it deff a 5spd swap but if its from point a-b then just pick up another 99-01 tranny with a tranny cooler and dont beat on it.

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

Thanx for the reply. Considering you can always use the slapstick to wind it out all you want do you guys really think the auto reduces the fun factor that much..?

Re: 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

my tranny crapped out on me today i have a 97 base and i just swapped it for a jdm h22. whenever you put it in gear it wont go it makes like a spinning noise and when you put it in nuetral it does the same with out giving it gas. to get it to stop you have to turn the car off and it wont go into park.
