trans is slipping starts to drive once it warms up hestitates and then slips. just bought it too off of Craigs list got to drive it not even a day =(. Can I have the recall cover it? If not where can I get a new transmission. Everything else other than the gages on the dash is perfect. It is a nice car just wish to get it fixed. Insurance is exspensive. Motor is very very strong
When shifting it will occasionally slip, the same when down shifting like the syncro is off. Acura said I need new Trans as they do not repair, $4500. I let it go still have same problem now at 124000 miles and counting
I have had similar issues, after doing some research, I believe replacing the transmission is a band aid to the problem. The problem isn't the issue, it's the solenoids that control the shifting. Replace those and you should be fine depending on the resulting damage done to the clutch and gears.
The car is still not fixed. I took it to the dealer for 60K major service. Had the service done earlier. I told them that the transmission was slipping and had issues. They serviced the car and mentioned that nothing was wrong with the transmission. Now the car has major issues with transmission and is almost not drivable. My warranty expired but Acura never communicated to me about the transmission issues. I only drive the car once a week to make sure the engine, battery, etc. are in good shape. The car is in mint condition and now is useless.
I got on the freeway and the car jerked once and carried on like it was nothing, a few miles later I noticed the car wasn't going any faster and the engine would just rev, I pulled off the freeway and the car wouldn't move foward, it only drives in reverse, I changed my fluid and cv axles. (worn out) After changing the axles, the car did drive up my quldesac and then stopped working again. Now it just sits on my driveway. I've had it for a year.
transmission started slipping, revving up by itself and jerking on downgrades. Stopped to check tranny fluid, seemed OK. I made it home, thought it was going to be alright, but the next morning proved that wrong. As I got on the highway, problems showed up again. 40mph max speed slowly losing ability to go that fast. Pulled over, put it in park and heard a slight crunch. I had it towed to local aamco transmissions, which had just went out of business... Trailered it home where it sadly sits in garage now.
My transmission shifted hard from the day I bought the car--brand new. After many complaints, I was told "that's the car computer not sure what gear you want to be in". After driving it like that for 13 years it finally went out. I replaced it with a "Jasper" transmission costing $3600.00 including labor. Well I can't recommend....that one was out in only 1 year. Good luck!
