2001 transmission...sport shift works but auto does not

I have had my 2001 Prelude since 2001 and this is the 3rd transmission. 2001 was a recall and got it replaced from the dealer for free. 3 years later it goes out and I get a new one and got jacked for $2,300. For the past year and a half I have been switching to the sport shift 4 gear function as that works but the regular automatic part does not. THey pulled 4 codes going to the tranny but if the sport shift 4 gear part works then why doesnt the automatic work? Can it just be the solenoids? It has been messed up for a year and a half but need to get it fixed as I am tired of shifting as it really doesnt accelerate fast enough from the stop.

CaN it just be parts I need or is the whole tranny jacked? If so, I am lookig to get a used one from a salvage yard. Prelude trannys are junk!!! I serviced it like every 3 months even if it didnt need it!! EIther I got jacked or prelude trannys are junk!!

Re: 2001 transmission...sport shift works but auto does not

okay..here is an idea... GO 5 SPD. it will be cheaper then a new auto tranny, last longer, and more fun. prelude auto tranny's suck. mine used to be auto... i went through two transmissions then said screw it and did the 5spd swap myself.

I say sell it and go for a 5 spd. It's will be worth it in the long run. I had a auto but my transmission never failed on me and I drove it everyday in sport shift. But until I got hit and now it's totaled. Ima buy a 5 speed next weekend.

Re: 2001 transmission...sport shift works but auto does not

hes asking for help to fix his problem, not for options on a manual swap.

if you put the transmission in regular drive will it move? Does it just not shift? What were the codes they pulled for the transmission? I would start with what the codes were and fix those problems. I'm betting there is something wrong with how the trans ecu tells the ecu when to shift. The sport shift is probably a separate circuit from regular drive.

Re: 2001 transmission...sport shift works but auto does not

I think mine is on it's way out too. that's why I havent been going anywhere far bc i'm afraid it'll crap out on me. Hopefully when I bring it to Doctor Lude(Bustr) that he can help me fix it up to buy me time to save up for a 5spd or jus borrow some $$ to get it 5spd Bustr Built!!!

Re: 2001 transmission...sport shift works but auto does not

Hey men listen the best route would be the swap like my budy buster said but that depends on how deep are your pockets .Then you should do some troubleshooting on what is your problem test the ecu for the trany and make sure you have the atf level and that the service on the trany was done with new filter .Check your fuses it's possible the soliniod could have shorted out . keep us posted .Later John

Do you think that a switch could be stuck in SS position? If you get what I'm trying to say by that.

If everything was working great and then suddenly the thing just won't go back to automatic mode but shifts properly in SS mode, no weird jerky shifting symptoms, that's what I would think of.

Re: 2001 transmission...sport shift works but auto does not

well, if he can afford a new auto tranny, he can definately afford a new manual one. but what codes was it throwing? that could be very helpful
