Issue kept going on for a few days till I took to a Transmission specialist which educated me and provided me with knowledge about transmissions and how they work. What mostly tips me off is the fact that under certain acceleration the car will shift fine. In 2004 was advised of a recall to fix a problem with the second gear in the transmission. Anyone talks about purchasing a vehicle and they will here my story. The car would jerk a significant distance, almost to the point where it could have hit another car. Once stopped, put car on park and turned off engine.
I have an automatic transmission. The vehicle was not diagnosed by a dealer. Most significant was when I was in a busy intersection and the car wouldn't go into third gear. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. Stopped driving and towed to dealer. I upped the quality on these parts and my car ran like a champ.
Now going into this post, I know that the Honda Transmissions from 99-03 are pretty much doomed, but I don't think this is quite the same symptom. I checked 5 of the 6 solenoid a, all were good. Help keep you in a good position should the airbags ever deploy. It did this about three times for about a mile until I could get home. Make sure it is on all the way.
Well, driving at 70 and merging into traffic and the car would go can cause an accident. I'm calling honda tomorrow but I'm thinking I'm wasting my breath. Also, I noticed my car has an issue with brakes when driving while raining. Only to make matters worse, I have my daughter driving also a 2003 Honda Accord, nearly the identical vehicle, and she just informed me that her Accord which she has at college has been building engine rpms and then jerking through gear changes. I've spoken to Honda and they will not help. I waited a few days to post to be sure but I am certain the issue has been resolved.
We recommend avoiding this model year like the plague. Several times my Accord would stall because it would not go into gear. Not knowing what was happening i kepted on the gas and as it sped up the rpms came down and they met in the middle so at 45mph i hit the gas hard and the rpms went to 6k but but the car was eccelerating like i had only slightly pushed the gas but once i hit 55mph the rpms at 4. It shifts fine from 2-3 and 3-4, but anytime that it shifts into second it can be a really hard shift. Two thousand miles later I was having some slipping during the 2-3 shift. My concern is if I have a recall and I am having problems that could be caused by a faulty spark plug shouldn't they automatically bring my car in and replace the spark plugs? I've owned 4 Honda cars and all from brand new vehicles and never a problem like this before.
It only does this from first gear, and it happens more frequently as the engine warms up. That said, if you're not experienced at rebuilding automatic transmissions, then going with a quality reman is the best way to go. Do not place it in its case to protect it from dust inner and outer edges. However, my Cherokee now revs really high and it feels like the transmission is slipping or disengaged until as it shifts. Replaced 4th gear pressure switch. Truck was driving okay until there was a small delay shifting into 3rd. It takes your car longer to months of dry weather, the first react, even in conditions that may rains bring oil to the surface of the seem just barely damp.
I am lodging my complain so the manufacturer would take a look on this issue as I found all the complaints on tcs issue on 2003 Honda Accord ex online when I was trying to look for a solution on the same issue for my car. I just picked the car up, and it is jerking when I drive about 30-35 mph. If clutch pressure is not within specification, repair hydraulic system as necessary. I put the car into drive to find out the car would only drive in first gear on drive. Check for an error indication.
My friends Saturn does the same, it wants different shift patterns. Com and the majority of the complaints dealt with this issue on the Accord. Although I have to say both parts were not leaking or showing any signs of wear. Spoke to good friends who have been working as Honda Mechanics for years, they say the early 00s models all have this problem and I'm lucky it went this long without happening. However dealer stated that the defect is not related to the recall and the vehicle had not been repaired.
Second most complaint about car in the history of carcomplaints. Remove the bulb by pulling it straight out of its metal tabs. All other features remain automatically controlled. After 15 seconds i start it again and its drive and change out nicely. Car speed may vary your Honda dealer.
I had the whole transmission rebuilt a year ago torque converter, internals, vehicle speed sensor have been changed, … ; the fluid does not smell bad, nor there are any particles, fluid level is correct as well. . Your idea with having the fluid in a jar so it cannot draw air back in will work too. I thought I was going to get hit by oncoming traffic. I had noticed clutch slippage soon after buying the car.
