Does the car shift ok?

yes, I got all the signs at the same time.

yes, My shift doesn't has any problem.

I didn't see under hood.

ok, we have a real problem with mice chewing the wire for the knock sensor(pours)

the temp sensor on trans can go out on these and cause the pours and sometimes pours as well . these require some skill to replace I can send instructions if you want to do this yourself but its not that easy to do.

Hi Acuramster,

 

Thanks for your reply . you are really a helper for me. by looking to instructions, I feel that i can't do this alone.

 

(1) If I choose to done by other mechanic how much will It cost (roughly not exact)?

(2) If I decide to do it myself what parts do I need to replace?

 

Thanks in advance.

the knock sensor runs about $280.00 and the temp sensor about $325.00 in my shop .

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
