Honda accord acceleration/transmission probl
So I bought a Honda back in November and
recently is started to not pick up Speed when I hit
the gas pedal and wasunable to accelerate no
faster than 20 miles per hour unless I was going
down a hill and had assistance the car would not
go any faster once I picked up Speed I was fine
but whenever I had to stop at a stop sign or red
light the car with have trouble picking up Speed
again and I would hit the gas but not be moving I
already got the o-rings on the car fixed along with
the valve cover gasket and the distributor cap and
distributor replaced I also got new spark plugs so
pretty much what I'm wondering is if I should
invest more money into this car to get it fixed and
what the problem may be or should I just go ahead
and get another car this car was bought for 2000
and has 197000 miles btw
Also I had did a drain and fill for the transmission fluid and the car shifted fine for about a day and a half then the problem came back
Would the engine rev up and sound normal when you hit the gas? Is it because of the transmission or plugged catalytic converters? Like the engine is holding back.
Yea the engine revs up when I hit the gas but I can't accelerate
It only let's me accelerate pass 20mph if I get a little help of a down hill slope
I suspect because of the mileage that the transmission is gone. Clutch plates worn out. Was there a lot of dubree in the pan when it was pulled off? Did the filter look black?
Are any of the idiot lights lit up on the dash, like Maint Required or the check engine light ? Have you had the cars computer checked yet to see if there are any trouble codes stored in the memory? It could be something as simple as a switch adjustment is needed on the transmission or low fluid level. Start by having the car checked for codes, it could be an intermittent problem that is stored in memory, possibly as a HISTORY or PENDING code, and can help if it is there. If you don't have a code reader you can go to an AdvanceAuto Parts or AutoZone store and they will read them for free. If any are there write them down and post them here in the same order as shown on the scan(if multiple codes show). Personally I think you overpaid for the car, but at that mileage, if the car appears to be in good shape I would not be so quick to dump it just yet, because these cars do tend to run for many years with much higher mileage than what yours has on it.
No lights on but i think transmission is failing
