Rebuilt automatic transmission problems

Hey PZ!

I recently had my tranny go out on me on my 98 Prelude, I got a rebuilt transmission from a place in California.

Well, when I finally got my lude back it shifted and rode perfectly.. until I got home and tried backing into my driveway. When I accelerate while in reverse, my car will go maybe 4-5 feet before it revs out and stops.
The next day I drove my car to work, going about 65-70mph I got a CEL and pulled a P0740 and P0700.

P0740: Torque Converter Clutch Circuit, from what I've researched it's a problem with a TCC Solenoid.

P0700: Transmission Control System (MIL Request) this was on when my first transmission went out on me too.

So the next day, I got ahold of the guy who sold me the tranny. He told me I should try replacing the TCC Solenoid, so I did. Took it out for a test drive and it ran perfectly.. until I tried backing it up again and the same problem.

From what I've researched and read on, it's a pressure problem in the 3-4th gear problems. I've only found one forum post having the same issue and that was a hairline fracture in the main shaft on a Honda Accord.

Does anyone have any questions or advice? It seems like a mechanical problem and not a circuitry problem.. but then again I'm not a transmission guy, just going by what one tranny mechanic said to me and my research.

Re: Rebuilt automatic transmission problems

It's the same tranny as accords.

Try searching or asking at Honda-Tech.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Rebuilt automatic transmission problems

I know it's a long shot, but I had a similar issue with FWD "Electronic" transmission I had in another car. It wouldn't shift down to 1st. All other gears worked fine. The solenoid was good and all. The problem was a bad O-Ring on the 1-2 Solenoid. I replaced it and all the others and it fixed the issue.

So if it is easy to get back into the tranny, see how it feels. If it feels gummy or soft, replace it, and all the others too if you can get to them. Most autoparts stores sells a box of them for around $8 and they have both Standard and Metric O-Ring kits.
