Thread: My transmission is starting to slip

  1. #1

    My transmission is starting to slip

    My 2000 Honda Accord with 187,000 miles has treated me well. Unfortunately, lately, the transmission is starting to slip and I'm looking for some mechanical advice. It's slipping between first and second gear most noticeably. I bought some transmission gear "saver" fluid at Auto Zone but honestly, I haven't really seen any improvement. Is there anything I can do to address/fix the problem before I have to put a new transmission in it? I would like to drive it for another year or two if I can.

    get it in for service now. Filters are probably clogged as $#@! with metal shavings.

    accuratehorn from hornfans owns a shop in Austin specializing in Hondas. It's called Accurate Automotive. I have no idea as to specific location, but he's a good dude.

    You didn't specfify manual or auto. There are no filters IIRC in their manual, as it uses gear weight oil not an ATF Dextron Mercon III etc... What color is your fluid?

    Auto: If the fluid is dark brown,black its gotten hot and looses it ability to lubricate efficently. Change filter/fuild This can be done in an hr easy.
    Manual: Fluid shoud be light brown maybe golden maple color. Change the gear oil, 30 mins to do this.

    From my experience autos are more expensive to work and maintain as it has more moving parts verses manual's. Plus manuals get better MPG, less rotating mass. If your halfway mechanically inclined you can change out a tranny in a day. My guess if you took it a shop your looking at $900-$1500 easy. Labor is what's going to cost you.

    *If you do change the tranny have the shop change the rear main seal (rear crank shaft seal) on your car. You'll thank me for this later when it starts to leak and you'll have to pull the tranny again to change a 8 dollar seal.

    I didn't think they worked on transmissions. I'd like to go to a specialist.

    My old A4 started doing that, and then the transmission died a couple of weeks later.

    If it's an A4, you can change the solenoids. It's easy. I have the same transmission on my Jeep Cherokee. There are 3 solenoids, costs about $125 for the parts.

    I'm not sure. I think they do, but I'd agree with you to go to a specialist. I was just offering up the info to the thread as a whole.

    Have you ever heard of a manual transmission "slipping"?

    Clutch maybe.

    And FYI, Honda's don't use "gear weight" (85-140, etc) oil. They use a 30 wt. motor oil for transmission lube. Yep.

    I think it is probably the solenoids on my truck. How hard is that? I imagine the mess is the big issue.

    Not to mention if it isn't the solenoids I wouldn't know how to tell and then would probably need to get my truck towed to a transmission shop.



    Never mind.

    My solenoids going out threw a check engine light, I pulled the error code, there was no such error code for a Jeep.
    But, after a google search, I found the code was an A4 error code for the overdrive solenoid. It was messy, yes, but I figure I saved 3-400 bucks.

    Don't procrastinate and don't accept "there's nothing wrong with it" when you take it in.

    Yeah, I meant my Audi A4. The CVT transmission on those cars were notoriously bad. I cut my losses at 91k miles.

    Manuals can slip, when the gears inside are missing teeth and your banging through the gear box racing it feels just like an auto slipping, especially at higer RPM's 6K+. Have an A-833 4 spd from an old Mopar that, that happened to. Can't gear weight start at 20? I should of choose my words better, good catch bro.

    Here's a question - 98 honda accord manual trans - if I hold my clutch down for any more than a second it stays down and I can't shift. If I do it quickly I can shift. Its been like this for months with no change for the worse. Any ideas as to why the damn clutch is doing this?

    If I had to guess sounds like a pressure plate, the "forks" sound like they are wearing out/weaking as they will do over time. Curious, how many miles, orginal clutch?

    pretty sure that when the gears in a manual are broken the term isn't "slipping". Slipping is used when the clutch (or clutches) slip. Cars with a manual can slip but it's the clutch that slips, not the transmission.

    maybe linkage or slave cylinder.

    just to be sure take it to autozone, THEY'LL CHECK IT FOR FREE!!!1111!!!

    Clutch's life span depend on some many variables. Driving style, power, city/hwy feathering etc...but 140K out of an orginal clutch is good, I'll take that everyday of the wk and twice on Sundays. If you start out in 1st gear then shift to 4th does it act like it is slipping? Slave cylinder is also something else to look at it too as was previously mentioned. Check the fluid in your clutch reservior, should be near the firewall/brake booster usually. Maybe low on fluid?

    yeah I'm going to check. clutch feels great, except for grinding between 4th and 5th, which I've had for awhile now. I know its a sign that i need a new one, but I just let RPM drop before shifting and it doesn't grind. I'm just trying to hold on so i can just buy a new car in a year or so without putting much into this one. Leaning towards the honda pilot at the moment.

    Honda's are awesome in my opinion, easy to work on and the after market/parts avaliablity is unlimited. They hold their resale really well too. Things are like Timex's take a lick and keep on ticking as long as regular mx and timing belts are changed accordingly.

    Getting back to this post you basically do not have many options. Servicing the tranny (giggles) at this point will only accelerate the demise of your transmission. Just like a manual transmission, automatics have clutches internally that will wear out over time. In order to keep driving the car you must address the issue.

    You might want to go to a junkyard and get a replacement and install it (some risk). Or you can bite the bullet and pay for the original to be rebuilt.

    This is an old wives tail. Started when people waited until there transmission was shot, then serviced it, and WA La, "hey, putting in good fluid and a new filter screwed up my transmission".

    While servicing won't undo any damage that has been done, but it could prevent any further damage. It sure as hell beats using burnt fluid, or a filter that needs replacing.

    Nivek,

    What are you saying?
    - Getting a salvaged low mileage transmission is better than rebuilding?

    Is this true for all makes/types of transmissions?

    You presume much. The GN had been well maintained. Tranny was slipping a little in my brothers GN we did a servicing and it was much worse immediately after the servicing. The tranny was doomed either way. Worked out well for him in the long haul with the mods.

    Getting a salvage transmission is an option, but it is not without risks. You could be picking up a bad unit, or a great one. I would advise looking in the pan for metallic shavings as a good indicator. If I recall correctly, JT went this route and had some good success and can probably recommend a good boneyard he has dealt with.

    I would go used, remanufactured, then rebuilt.

    Find a used one see how many miles are one it and find out what the warranty is.

    I know GM, Ford's and Chrysler's remans are 3 year 100k.

    The last route I would go would be getting one rebuilt on a guy's bench, usually a terrible warranty and they don't replace all the parts that a factory reman would get.

    I would contact LKQ, and chances are they'll have what your looking for. 800-460-8714. Standard warranty is 6 months (parts only) or you can get 1 year (parts and labor) warranty.

    You are probably right on with this one ^

    I went to Eagle today and they told me they could rebuild it for approx $2000-$2500. I'm really on the fence on this. Like I said, it's a 2000 with 187k on it. I don't feel right selling it w/ transmission issues and I'm not going to just keep driving it b/c if I do, I know that I'm going to get stuck out in the middle of BFE one night with my transmission on the road. I'm leaning towards letting them do the work and then just driving it for another year or two.

    Anyone have a good rec. for a transmission mechanic in Houston?

    20My Trans. on my 2005 F150 begin to slip a few weeks ago. It happens when it shifts between 40 - 50 mph, and also when it downshifts into a passing gear when on cruse control. This was happening for a while, but not too noticeable to me because I drive it everyday. But a friend noticed it while driving around town. So I had the fluid changed as well as the filter, which helped a lot but it has recently been happening more noticeable.

    After reading a few F150 forums, I think I might need the solenoids changed out, does anyone have any experience with this?

    Sounds like solenoids. That's what I need done on my GMC. I was told it isn't hard, just messy and the other problem is that if it is more than the solenoids I woulnt know what to look for and would have to get it towed.
