The transmission slips slightly between 2 and 3 gears at normal speed. At high speed its fine. Could there be something that could fix this other than complete transmission replacement.

When was the last transmission service done?

It has super low mileage so I doubt it was ever done.
Mechanic for Honda: HondaPlatinum, A Technician replied 5 years ago
Ok that would be the next step.Drain the fluid then remove the transmission cooler lines from the transmission .Then take one of the cooler lines and insert it in a gallon jug and blow compressed air through the other end.This will remove any debris or clots from the cooler.Then reinstall all.Fill with 2.8 quarts of Honda fluid only .Road test the car.If there is still an issue then you need to remove the shift solenoids and clean the screens and reinstall.If there is then still an issue its internal and the transmission will need to be replaced or rebuilt to fix this issue.These are the next steps.Hoped this helped.Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.

Should I replace the solenoids?
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
Should I consider replacing the solenoids? Is there a filter that goes along with this transmission. The fluid looks very clean and is full.
Mechanic for Honda: HondaPlatinum, A Technician replied 5 years ago
No filter its all internal.You can try to replace the solenoids if there is still an issue.Hoped this helped.Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.

One last thing, I'm going to be tackling all this tomorrow, any step by step instructions or right ups? Would a failing solenoid cause the transmission to slip?
Mechanic for Honda: HondaPlatinum, A Technician replied 5 years ago
No the clogged transmission cooler could.Here is a DIY for you .

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

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
