Resolved Question:

2001 Honda Accord - engine light came on - diagnostics done by Honda dealer and am told it needs clutch control solenoid on transmission replaced. Do you think this means transmission is going bad?

What was your code? It will start with a "po" and should be on your receipt.

Thank you. DTC P1773: Problem in A/T Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve B Circuit

I have had several of these go bad and it doesn't mean that your transmission is going bad also. The solenoid is an external part that only takes an hour or so to replace and you should be just fine. I guess I have replaced 10 of them on the 98-02 Accords and had no trouble since. I hope this helps you, but if you need anything else, please let me know. I will be glad to assist.
