engine compartment has so much grease and dirt that is impossible to see components well

Check engine light comes on every 30-90 miles. I can go over 300 miles without check light if it's a constant drive. I've noticed short drives create pressure build up in the tank that can be released by opening gas cap.

Can i get a new one?

And TCS light on the dashboard comes on.It will now reduces it's acceleration.I don"t knw if it's a gear problem

The delay is more noticeable with accelerating through the lower gears. I have been told that a transmission flush is the answer.

I thought one would check it with the engine on. On the dip stick there are 2 holes down low and 1 way up at the top near the plug. should the fluid level be up to the top hole?

Also would like to know how much it should cost to recharge air conditioner

This little Honda Accord speedometer wants to work only 10% of time. You maybe driving down the road than all sudden the speedometer stops working even when the cruise control is set. Is it by chance this problem is the vehicle speed sensor on the transmission that is bad. I hate to replace it if that isn't the problem. This part is about a $100.00 to replace. Can anyone please help me out with some good advice so i can get this fixed. Thank you for your time.

car was in for 120,000 service and the mechanic says the engine mounts are weak - wants $370 to replace them. Is the price reasonable?

I am leaking transmission fluid and it has been traced to the front seal. I was told that the torgue converter needs to be removed during this process. I was given an estimate of around $1000...said it may be less. Can anyone help me out to determine if this is a valid estimate?

Thanks so much,

Honda Accord SE has 112K. Light has been on for 2 months or so. Loose gas cap is also a probable cause but I have filled up several times and the light has not gone off. What would be the most likely failure and what should I try to change myself and what should I let the dealer change? The Troubleshooting code is P1457, which the Autozone rep said he had never seen before.
Possible remaining causes are: vapor canister saturated, failed vent solenoid, or failed purge solenoid.
