Icon5 5th gen auto tran question

I read the thread on transmission failure... what does a 'whine' sound like? I hear nothing but the engine purring at idle, then I'm driving I do hear a slight whistle that matches the rpm's as I'm revving up through the gears, could that be considered a whine? Thnx...

I know I have read a lot on here and it's obviously the way to go... I'm starting to save my pennies where I can to get it done but I have to try and squeeze a few months out of what's in there to possibly consider doing it and doing it right.
If it's automatically just impending doom and it's going to up and die without warning though it seems best to park it, store it and drive my old junker... which would suck because a a cheap Pontiac feels like navigating an elephant through the streets of India after having been Honda spoiled... makes a person wonder why some other companies bother making cars or where was I when I could have had a Honda all along... lol.

Re: 5th gen auto tran question

I also have an auto, for a little more than 10 years now. Not a mechanical problem out of it. I did have to have it rebuilt, not from mechanical failure, but from a tranny flush where the morons did not use Genuine Honda ATF. Other than that, it has been great. Pushing a little over 212,000 miles now and still going.

Re: 5th gen auto tran question

made an appointment with the Honda dealership here in town for a drain and fill... think that is good enough or should I get it flushed?

Re: 5th gen auto tran question

Passenger side.

If you are certain the previous owner took care of the tranny with frequent fluid changes, yeah flush that sucker.
Unfortunatley honda thinks it's a good idea to house the filter inside (read non replacable w/o lot's of work) the tranny. Ugh. But if your shifting is solid, the filter is probably ok. As in not covered with shavings. But some of that old debris is a good thing of the po did not keep fresh atf in the box. So no flush.
Basically it's a toss of a coin unless you know for certain it was changed regularly and therefore has no metal shavings all deposited in nooks n crannies. Sometimes removing all the debris causes worn out gizmos to become just that..worn out gizmos that the debris was keeping lubricated or sealed.

Auto zone etc has honda atf equivilant. I used the real deal when I had an auto Honda tranny. Snot much more expensive and the peice of mind is worth it to me. H and A accessories.com sells it by the quart or case way less than the dealer will charge you.

Thanks, took the car into Honda here in town. Old guy at the desk basically said the same thing before the service. He also informed me he was now paid by the hour not per job, and that, though the CAN fix cars, they DON'T fix cars, they change oil... lol. After the service, he told me they test drove it and thought it was sluggish, and possibly slipping... there was minimal debris so he they dumped all they could out and replaced it with Honda ATF. He then informed me that I was ugly and he doesn't want to see me again.
I never had a Honda before so I didn't know what to expect.. it shifts a lot quicker now, and you really can't tell during normal driving that it's even doing it unless the stereo is off or you're staring at the tach..(which is rare).
Anyhow they charged me 85 bucks and recommended I do it once more before the summer is out..
It's a Honda why not put Honda in a Honda it really didn't cost more and a hell of a lot less if the tranny died mid-trip...

Re: 5th gen auto tran question



Glad it worked out for ya there matt.
You probably should consider changing it every 15-30k miles.
Dude could be right, as in change it before too much longer to get most of the rest of the old atf out.

Now... who said you were ugly?
As in ugly? Or as in rude?

Edit:
If it goes to whining you will know what it sounds like... You're probably fine.

Thanks... and I will change it again at the same place...
... Haha... the old dude working the desk at the Honda dealership... I 'think' he was possibly trying to get his point across that they do a good job etc, and best to take it there first... Though... I was sweaty unshaven and exhausted, I had just got off work... also was also wearing the hat backwards... hmm.. Maybe I did look like sh!t... Haha... Er...

Big difference, shifts are smooth and fast, it will also drop two gears if you floor it in D3 or D4, to first or second, it never did that before, almost eliminates the need to use sport shift, I had no clue it would make that difference... again, this is pretty much the first Honda I drove, I had nothing to compare it to before.... it's nice =)
