I think i F'ed up my Tranny

Well..i had to reverse, so obviously, i pressed down on the clutch put it on reverse. Ok it doesn't go fully in..ok it usually does this to me. I put it on first, then reverse..still blocked, WTF?, so i put it on 3rd..so on and so forth, i tried 3 different gears, then i didn't really mean to, put i used a little force, and it went in. Now i didn't hear no grinding noise or anything. When i push the stick to the right though, (Either to shift into 5th or R) sometimes not all the time, i hear a clicking noise.... did i **** up my tranny, or whats up?

probably just a damaged linkage under your gear stick

Kelso is on a distinguished road
I had nearly the same problem.

The previos owner ground 5th pretty good at one point and as time, shifts, and miles went on the top/bottom (I dont remember which) of the gear started forming a lip. When it was very small you didnt notice anything but as it got bigger so did the problem.

The tranny started not being able to slide off 5th gear into reverse with out force.

Short story long...

I ended up replacing the...

Syncro sleve kit
5th / reverse shift fork
5th gear

while the mechanic was in there he took care of the 3 seals that were going and also did the cluth and flywheel.

grand total on the repair 1326

Well guys,.... from experience the first sign of a mess up tranny on the prelude is a damaged reverse gear. Its either hard to get in or will not go in at all.

Yes.. it is normal for you to not be able to get in reverse when the car has just been started. This is because on honda PRE 2001, the reverse gear is straight cut and has no sychro. Dont let it scare ya.

If you hearing a clicking noise ... its most likely a bent fork. I had to straighten out some forks in hondas before. It seems to be pretty common. But its a easy fix and most likey dont have to buy any replacement parts. U can fix the old one pretty easy. Its jsut the time and labor of getting it out and taking it apart.
