1985 Honda Accord SE-i, 1.8 L, 130,000 miles, automatic trans. My problem is trans oil has burnt smell, and surges at abnormally high RPM when it finally will shift (or "slip") through the gears.

Asked by Nov 27, 2012 at 07:53 PM about the 1985 Honda Accord SE-i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After it warms up, the shifting is much smoother.  This situation has only worsened over the last 6 months.  Before that I never noticed a transmission problem.  A mechanic friend said I need a new and complete trans.  No fix will do.  I just baby it now through the gears.  I feel it may fail totally anytime.  Suggestions?    Thanks,  Scott

There is no replaceable filter on those, but I would definitely try changing the fluid.
