do i have a transmission problem or a censor problem?

Asked by Sep 27, 2014 at 12:31 PM about the 1990 Honda Civic LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have a 1990 honda civic lx and about a month a go, i drove it a couple a miles away
from home, then it stopped. the car wouldnt shift but it was still running but when i
applied the gas it wouldnt move. i let it sit for a couple weeks, then i tried to drive it
again and it works finer then before, but i think i might still have that problem. do i need
to change the transmission fluid, or is it a sensor or something preventing the car from
moving.

again i can start my car and drive it, but after a couple of blocks of driving the car, the
car transmission shuts down,but the car is still running.

assuming that the tranny just didn't puke, It could be something as simple as a TCC or torque converter control solenoid. you should get the codes scanned in the computer. obd1 can be a pain, but if its a sensor, it should throw a code.
