There is no vacuum hose going to the transmission . The hose on the top of the transmission is the vent and will not cause this issue . Is you engine light on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
there is a hose off , engine light not on
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 2 years ago.
Where is the hose off the intake manifold?there are no vacuum lines on the transmission .Just a vent line on top.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
it is a 3/8 '' X 18'' long hose that runs from the rear right top of the engine and clamps to the radiator hose, but can't find a nipple .. . .
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 2 years ago.
Is it from the back of the intake manifold? Was a egr update done prior to this?

Is the other end connected to the transmission?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I think it's the tran , driver side top back . . .
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 2 years ago.
That's the vent line . Can you post a picture if where it attach's?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
http://wsik.wordpress.com/
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 2 years ago.
Yes thats the vent house for the transmission and does not get attached to anything . Sounds like you have a sticking throttle plate. Was there any recent work done to the vehicle?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
the battery went dead and i replaced it . Just bought the car last Thurs. It ran fine on the way home. it sat a couple days while I cleaned it and the battery ran down to where it wouldn't crank. when I put a new battery in, it started but went up to 6000 and oscilated. now it starts and goes to 4000 and the tran is locked in park.
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 2 years ago.
Ok disconnect the battery . Clean the throttle plate and throttle body along with the idle air control valve.Reconnect the battery if there is still an issue there is a vacuum leak most likely behind the intake plenum
Like I stated . The line you posted is the transmission vent and will not cause this issue. These are the next steps . Hoped this helped.Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK, will try it tomorrow . . .

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Got throttle body out, not too dirty and it isn't sticking . . . normal for a stuck valve ?
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 2 years ago.
