For P1739 , replace the 3rd clutch pressure switch and do an ATF drain & fill(use only Honda fluid). For EVAP (P1457) best to have that diagnosed at a shop that's equipped with tools and info necessary. Dealer might be best choice , depending on what's available in your area. -

Thank you for your help...i have one more question?...Can this possibly mean that my transmission is slipping or going bad? -
Comment 4
That pressure switch monitors clutch pressure (for that hydraulic circuit , to help ease the 'shift shock' when gear changes. Probably , you don't and won't feel much of a difference short term.No , it doesn't mean the trans is going bad. I haven't changed that many on Accords' , but I've changed quite a few on Pilots and Oddyseys , with no other noticable effects to the trans. -
