Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 97 Honda Accord is very clean, well maintained and runs great! My question is why is
it about to become junk because of a transmission leak? I could understand if it were a
shit box but it isn't.

Who says it's junk? 1997 Honda Accords are going for around $3000 or so. If you don't have 250,000 miles on it and it does not cost a lot to fix the transmission leak, then it has value. But if you DO have 250,000 miles on it and it needs a transmission it's not worth spending the cost of a transmission and it is ..well not junk but of little value

Cost of a new transmission plus labor is $3000-$4000.

Be a little more specific about the leak. Do you know what is leaking? If the transmission is just leaking from all of the seals and gaskets you might look into a salvage yard for a good replacement tranny, most yards have a warranty but just for the part no labor.
