Hi folks, was hoping someone can help me with a minor annoyance I've
Currently I have about 120k miles on my car.
The problem Im having is with my transmission.
Around 80k ( after warranty ended ) MY CEL light came on and code was
This is related to the TCC.
The symptoms are:
Shifting from 1st - 2nd
It seems as if its slipping when its trying to
engaged into 2nd. Once it grabs its like a hard shift. This only
happens from 1st to 2nd. All other gears are fine. I've perfomed a
stall test and all came out fine. I've even taken it to honda 4 times
and they could not find a problem.
I've replaced the lockup control solenoid and
noticed the screen wasnt that dirty. ( I replaced this almost a yr ago
The shifting problem doesnt occur all the time. I know if i put the
peddle to the medal from take off the car accelerates like usual but
when its about to shift its kinda like thinking or looking for the 2nd
gear. It doesnt shift as quick as when i first bought it.
I've been doing some research and am thinking that
it could be the Linear Solenoid that might be screwed up. I believe
thats the pressure solenoid for the lock up control. Im just confused
here because all I keep reading about is code P0740 is the death code
etc....Meanwhile I've been driving like this for over 20k miles.
Everything else with the transmission feels fine except for that.
Im pretty knowledgeable when it comes to
automotive mechanics which is why im not leaning towards my tranny
needing to be replaced. Im just wondering if anyone has experienced
something like this in their 98-02 accord.
btw...02 accords are excluded from the tranny recall because its been
corrected for that yr car.
