Transmission

Asked by Sep 29, 2016 at 01:35 AM about the 1989 Honda Prelude 2 Dr Si 4WS Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

have an 89 automatic prelude si 4ws. When im driving, car
doesn't wanna shift until about 5rpm and downshifts from
3rd kinda hard. Also, if i put the pedal all the way to the
floor, it shifts all the way to the last gear and just kinda
bogs. need help, any ideas what it could be ?

The best thing to do is to take it to a tranny shop, they can plug into the electronics and run their own tests on the shift solenoids and pressures, then tell you if it is solenoids, control module or an internal tranny problem and what it will take to fix it.
