does the transmission feel like its going into gear and just not moving or you cant ever notice it going into gear?

Ask Your Own Honda Question

it feels like its going in gear but dont move

check engine light on?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No

ok, since the check engine light is not on, and you can feel it catching when you put it in gear. does it seem like it is even trying to move forward? or all it does is rev up?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
All it does is rev up

Have you checked the transmission fluid?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
it was very low so i put a bottle in

with the engine running and if you check it now, is it at the full mark? also what color was the fluid before you added some?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
the engine was running and the fluid looked like oil color

thats not good at all. it should have been reddish pink. and of course full. you have to drain all of the fluid out and have the system flushed.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Ok i do that then what

hopefully the transmission has not suffered internal damage from the fluid being black and probably never before changed.

Ask Your Own Honda Question

then hope for the best. if it doesn't make a difference you are looking at a rebuild.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
How much does that cost

a rebuild? standby please

Ask Your Own Honda Question

to remove the transmission and reinstall it is a 7 our job. once its removed it will need opened up and taken a part and rebuilt which o will very from shop to shop. all shops labor rates are different and of course depending on the parts inside that need replaced determines the final cost of the rebuild

Ask Your Own Honda Question

I would venture to say a total time of around 12 hours.

Ask Your Own Honda Question

its probably cheaper to find a used transmission to just have removed and replaced.

Ask Your Own Honda Question

can I help with anything else?

Linda B.USA

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
