Good morning,

When the problem occurs does the "D" light blink on the shift indicator?

Also, to get to the root of the problem you will need to scan the vehicle for trouble codes. Do you have a parts store nearby that will scan for trouble codes? Most of them will do this for free.

No phone please. Will.there be more typed.resppmse?
Mechanic for Honda: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Sorry, that's automated.

It's tough to give even an educated guess on what's happening without more information.

The transmission sounds like it has an internal failure, but sometimes what seems like an internal failure can really be a fluid pressure problem.

Mechanic for Honda: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Fluid pressure problems can sometimes be cured with replacement shift solenoids.

Is shift solenoid replacement complicated /expensive?
Mechanic for Honda: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Not terribly. But you don't want to just replace them unless you have a trouble code indicating that they are bad. Also, they are usually only the problem when the "D" light blinks. If it's not blinking I would suspect the transmission has failed internally and a shift solenoid isn't going to help.

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

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
