Honda Prelude 1999 automatic p0730 with no noise or burnt smell from transmission

Asked by Aug 26, 2019 at 09:03 AM about the 1999 Honda Prelude

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 99 automatic that I am stumped on. Symptoms: Shift flare in
between 1-->2-->3 then car goes into limp mode (only have 2nd gear and
reverse) when check engine light comes on. Code p0700 and p0730 are
coming up on scanner. I checked the shift solenoid- it is good. I checked the
A/T pressure valve solenoid and one of them was bad. I replaced this part
with working A/T pressure valve solenoid but this didn't fix my problem. Of
course mechanic just wants to replace transmission although they have
stated that they do not know what the problem is, but I'm not sure that will fix
my issue and I don't want to dump money into something that doesn't help.
There has never been any odd noise coming from tranny and fluid does not
smell burnt. Any helpful suggestions are appreciated. Telling me to sell it or
do a manual swap are not options. I need to find out what is going on.
