Engine/Tranny

Hey guys im new to the forum, i own a SS 97 Prelude... i know i know (bad transmission) and what not. But its running OK for now, no check engine lights.. however in the morning when the engine is cold, gear changes are hard, and sometimes revs and extra 1-2k rpm before it actually changes. Also my engine on idle or when driving, sometimes sounds like a diesal engine? like a rattly noise... im assuming it has something to do with the timing belt being loose or old?

Re: Engine/Tranny

Bluntly put, your transmission is going out. There's no real easy fix for it honestly, because it will more than likely get worse. Some people can squeeze 10k+ miles out of a dying transmission, but its just the nature of 5th gen automatics for the transmissions to start doing that.

You will either need the transmission rebuilt or replaced.
