I contacted a local Honda dealership to set up repair. Apparently wanting to punish me. My car started jerking about a month ago when I switch gear to 4th and 5th gear. I say may because it could also be a lot more serious, but at least you know and only pay for what is needed. The contact stated that the automatic transmission would not shift into first gear usually the first two miles of the day and after driving a few miles, the failure began to correct itself.
On my next trip downstate 150 miles I had my oil changed. I immediately took the car in for a diagnosis and was told that it was a transmission defect and the entire transmission would have to be replaced. The faulty transmission affected the engine and brakes. My research found that this issue has been a probem with even brand new Honda. We recommend avoiding this model year like the plague. The failure mileage was approximately 80,000. Have the transmission serviced by a professional mechanic for both issues.
Also make sure your 2001 Accord has been checked for the airbag recall: excessive pressure may cause metal fragments during airbag deployment. All you need is to register your complaint on three sites: the Carcomplaints. I left the car at the dealer and got a call the next day that it was a bad transmission and Honda would replace it for free. It has never been low on oil like that before. Under magnuson-moss warranty act, they have had sufficient times to try and repair this vehicle! Replaced all electrical under drivers seat, replaced brake sensor 3 times - allows gearshift to release. This can cause potential rear ending in on ramp.
The Honda dealer and Honda America say that the transmission is designed to operate this way, that this is not a defect covered under the warranty and that there is nothing to repair. Help for a recall please! They must know they really have a bad design here since it was already out of warranty. At the car was under warranty. Thanks for coming to Fixya. You may need to loosen some things at the shifter assembly portion inside your car if confident enough that you can put everything back properly.
It burns more than 2 quarts of oil between each oil change. The car has burned excessive amounts of oil since day one. Would you have the car towed to the Honda Dealership and have them diagnose it? Please forward the copy of the complaint to the appropriate department, so that they can look into the matter. Reverse to install If you have a newer Honda, you go to the dealership if you are under warranty and inform them of the problem. The problem is due to a low vent valve on the six speed manual transmission. Just make sure you get a comparable warranty on parts because the rebuilt replacement transmissions can fail just as quickly, if not sooner.
It sounds like the shop is not exactly honest, nor honorable. It is impossible to predict how long it will last if you keep driving it, they are mechanical items which can break, especially if it is already having a problem. And April 20, 2006 115000 miles , the transmission finally broke. I dont understand the rest of your post. I had noticed clutch slippage soon after buying the car.
Probably 1 month later had to bring in for transmission leak against. The D4 light was blinking. The police responded and filed a report. The oil is at 50% and the car has already burned over 1 quart of oil with just over 20,000 miles on the car. May 31, 2014 I hope you are aware that 1998-2002 Accord transmissions were troublesome, rarely lasted more than 70k miles, and the object of a recall.
One in my 95 accord, 00 civic, and my brother's 98 accord V6. The vehicle was put in drive and accelerated uncontrollably. The car would not shift from 1st into second… then it kind of dropped into neutral then clunked into second gear and the D4 light was blinking. If this is a V6, these transmissions are notorious for having problems internally, and need to be rebuilt at a transmission shop, or replaced. I had made no previous attempt to make a deal as this was the first news when I got the phone call. By the way, many owners of Honda cars say that the torque converter often fails and burns up the transmissions fluid. When you release the clutch assuming you are in 3rd, the gears grind loudly and the shift lever is thrown forcibly back to neutral, leaving you without power.
Again I was almost rear ended with my baby in the back seat both times. I then took it to right Honda in scottsdale, and they then flushed the linear solenoid, and when I got it back, it was still was doing it. Had it not we would have hit 4 people. The car was recalled because of faulty transmission. If your Accord won't stay in gear while you are driving, this can indicate a serious problem with an automatic transmission. We all know money is the determining factor and basis for their decision and if left to them, they would never issue one. Honda accord transmission problems led to recalls, which was a disaster for dealer company.
