Take a look at the shift solenoid...

Could be, and you'll be lucky if that's all it is. Joemom, by solenoid, are you referring to the "speed sensor "? I had this go out on my old 95 Honda Accord. If it's not, then, this is a classic symptom of a worn out transmission and you will need an overhaul. Good luck.

thanks to you Joemom & Markw, when I show this to one technician, he said need to replace the Valve Box, but that also not sure to him as whether problem is solving after that, meanwhile pls advise, the Solenoid is means same as the Valve Box,
