Have a Honda Question? Ask a Honda Repair Expert.
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Can you tell me what is occuring with your transmission and is it an automatic or manual transmisison?
I will send the additional service request you have asked for if you want to continue over the phone.If not you can deny the request and continue here.
O.k.,the noise and the slipping can be due to an issue with the transmission fluid pump possibly as this can start to fail or another internal transmission component slipping like a clutch internal in the transmission as this is common to weak and cause this here.One common problem is the fluid itself.In allot of cases the fluid can become less effective or dirty and Honda's are known for automatic slipping issues with dirty or thin fluid.Honda uses its own special transmission fluid that has to be used on this transmission.If the incorrect fluid is ever added this can cause this issue as well.
In allot of cases a simple transmission fluid flush being done by removing the old fluid and adding new will correct issues like this here.This is done removing the transmission fluid cooler lines from the transmission to flush out the fluid and add new fluid at the coolant line ports.If at any point any incorrect fluid was added I would definitely start with the fluid being flushed.I do see now above as I was typing this that you did the fluid flush already with the correct Honda fluid (if it was recommended for this model) so the fluid isnt the cause.
This sounds like with the new info you added that the fault may be with the transmission fluid pump itself failing needing replaced.The only way to be sure that this is the cause and to see if anything else is causing this here is to have the transmission inspected/tested to locate the fault.This is best done by a repair facility that works on this model transmission or a dealer repair facility.I suspect band wear or transmission fluid pump failure as the cause here.
If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.
If it says it was made for Honda it should be o.k. and if you still have the same issue after changing the fluid then the fluid isnt the cause here.Let me know what you find with the transmission.
Let me know if you need anything else here and feel free to rate my help.
This sounds like clutches slipping in the transmission.When warm the components expand from the warmer temperature and this is when it slips.I suspect this is the cause here.The transmission will have to be inspected further to be sure then repaired once the fault is located.
Unfortunately I am unable to do this myself due to the extensive inspection needing done to the transmission and my info I use does not cover all the repair info on this transmission for your model here.I wish I had better news for you on this.
I dont have the full manual for this here but you can obtain it at https://www.alldatadiy.com/.They do charge a small fee for this but the fee is good for one year and covers all repair and diagnostic info for your model as well as wiring diagrams for your model here.I hope this helps.
I only recommend flushing with the Honda fluid as any other fluids or contaminants on this particular transmission can damage the transmission further.Honda's automatic transmissions are sensitive to any other fluids.
O.k.,at the passenger side under the carpet at the front edge is the TCU.With the key on what code does it blink at you?There is an indicator light on the tcu to display the code.
O.k.,if the tcu has been replaced as well as the solenoids this can be an issue with the wiring leading from the solenoids to the tcu itself being shorted or damaged needing repaired.Below is the diagnostic procedure for both of these codes here to follow to locate the fault.
This may be a power or ground input to the TCU at fault then.I would follow the diagnostic test steps above to pinpoint the fault as it will lead to the component or issue here at fault needing repaired.
According to the codes this sounds like a circuit/electrical fault.Have you followed the diagnostic steps I provided at all to see what the fault leads to?
O.k.,let me know what you come up with here.
Unfortunately I dont have the repair info for that transmission.The link I sent above should have all of that info but does charge a fee.The charge is good for one year for your vehicle covering all repairs and diagnostics as well as diagrams.
Did this just now occur with the rpm signal or has this been an issue for awhile now?
This is a difficult question for me to answer fully with all that is going on on both of these models here.
I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.
Different tech here, would you like me to try and help?
Yes I can.
So the issue is, no forward gears work, but reverse does, correct?
Do you have a scan tool to see if the computer is getting an accurate rpm signal?
If you disregard looking at the tachometer, does the engine and trans operate and work fine?
Thanks, ***** ***** tachometer issue appears to just be a concern with the gauge inside the instrument cluster or the wiring between the cluster and PCM. If the PCM did not have a tach signal it would be storing trouble codes and having running issues.
Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.
If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.
I'm only paid from the deposit you've made when you rate 3,4, or 5 stars.
Follow up/Reply as many times as needed before or after rating.
This car stores 4 digit codes I can not look up 43.
Replacing the instrument cluster would be the next step since you are not able to check the PCM tach signal.
My name is***** have e problem with my transmission Customer: i have a 2001 Honda Civic Ex Automatic
I was responding based on your original car concern. We are not allowed to address multiple vehicles and multiple concerns on one post. If you now need help on a 90 model with different issues then a new post has to be opened.
