I took my 98 civic to an authorized honda dealer. they read the code
P0730 - Incorrect gear ratio. Now they suggest replacing the
transmission for 2500 parts and labor.
Is there any chance honda is wrong in saying the only thing to do is
get a new transmission. There is something wrong with the car, the
check engine light came on a week ago, I had it reset, and now it's on
again, so it's not just a fault with the computer. Also the car jumps
slightly (almost impersptably) when i step on the gas after starting
The car seems to run fine otherwise. How long is it possible for it to
Will it just break down on the freeway one day (not safe to drive), or
will it just gradually get worse?
Anything I can do besides replacing my tranmission? The dealer said
just baby it and don't change the transmission fluid as this is any
metal particles in it now keep it running fine, so don't change it.
I was planning on getting rid of the car in a few months anyway, as I
will not need a car for a while (going back to school). I don't want
to rip someone off by selling them a car that seems fine, but has a a
bad transmission, on the other hand i sure don't want to pay 2500 for
a new transmission. Any cheaper alternative fix I can do or other
