Tranny question.

Hey guys have a tranny question.

1. Hardshifts from 1st to 2nd

2. Kinda has a "eeeeeeeeeeeee" sound from time to time kinda like a chirp when I drive.

3. Sometimes has a sound when in Idle, like something is roating, very subtle sound.

*I read the sticky but there were so many pages I thought I could make a thread for my own potential?? issue*

*I took my car to a mechanic and had him do a bumper to bumper and the only thing he told me to replace were the spark plugs and the fuel filter and that the fluids were good to go*

*I drive a 2001 base prelude auto trans with 106,7xxK miles on it.*

Re: Tranny question.

most of the idle problems are solved by doing these (basic maintenance):

- new spark plugs & wires
- new distributor cap & rotor
- new air/fuel filters
- clean injectors/iacv/egr/fitv
- change all the fluids (including oil change + new oil filter)
- adjust valves and ignition

your tranny is gone. think about manual swap.

Re: Tranny question.

I'm still skeptical if it is or not. I'll take it to a mechanic. It could be my paranoia/fear of this happening because I have NO MONEY

Re: Tranny question.

Loose a/c belt? Does it do that when in defrost or a/c mode? Turn on defrost/ac then off. See if the noise happens only when the compressor is on. If so belt is loose or worn.

Re: Tranny question.

it could be an input shaft bearing like me and need a whole new tranny. Is the sound only while the car is in park? Or if your sitting there in drive with your foot on the brake I dont really know how the auto trannys work but it can't be too different from a manual. My guess is a input shaft bearing getting worn or your throw out bearing someone call me an idiot if they need too im not too positive but that sounds like my car but my symptoms have grown to be 10 times worse than that but that's how it started

Re: Tranny question.

The sound in idle is when I have my foot on the brake.

Re: Tranny question.

Loose belt.

$10 @ autozone, o'reilys etc. Maybe up to $25.
If you are handy with tools you can tightnen it yourself. But I'd replace is asap if it's slipping.

A very common thing on most vehicles.

Re: Tranny question.

The hard shift from 1st to 2nd is your tranny failing most likely. Mines slips 1st to 2nd.

Re: Tranny question.

@01prelude,
You reckon a fluid/filter chang may help?
I ask that knowing they do fail. Are there any accord autos that fit? I spose it would be a buzzkill but it beats walking imo til swap-o-matic to stick happens.

i have heard that changing the tranny oil after it start to slip could actually make the problems worse. could check the oil level i guess, but it was something about the metal shavings that might be in the old oil could be giving the transmission enough grip to continue to work.

best bet to have it last a little longer is to take it to a transmission shop or something, have them check the fluid and possibly recommend what you could do to get a little more life out of your tranny.

also have you read the auto transmission failure guide? 5th Gen Auto Transmission Failure Guide

Re: Tranny question.

Sounds pretty simple but have you done a transmission fluid change? Chances are your auto tranny is failing as most auto 5th gen tranny's do. Try a fluid change first. Act from there...

Re: Tranny question.

From what I read on the failure thread it could bd failing. Ugh!
Coincidently dude described a loose belt sound. Sometimes in life things happen in cycles, pairs or series.

I'm used to hard shifting being a clogged filter as I'm used to the old school cars. It's too bad Honda doesn't make improved repair parts for the loyal customer who bought a honda due to the reputation of being reliable. I hear a series of accord has the same issue without a stick shift as an option.

Pretty sure that's the magnetic plug... also used in oil changes.

Re: Tranny question.

I've heard of changing the fluid helps.... But the Honda ATF is expensive and wasn't worth it IMO for it not to work or make things worse. I also heard putting Lucas transmission fix into your tranny oil helps too I bought a bottle but never got to it and now with my swap coming March Im not going to waste time on it. When it starts to fail you can either rebuild it or swap it.
