Problem Reported: Check Engine and D4 Lights Flashing
May 27, 2010, 11:08 AM
<p>Honda Accord models may develop shifting issues with the automatic <a href="/transmission">transmission</a>&nbsp;accompanied by warning lights. &nbsp;</p> <p>Rough shifting may occur, and the &ldquo;D4&rdquo; light and check engine may begin to blink. The <a href="/symptoms/check-engine-light">check engine light</a> will also illuminate, and <a href="/trouble_codes_1">OBD trouble codes</a> <a href="/OBD-II-Code-P0700">P0700</a>, <a href="/OBD-II-Code-P0730">P0730</a>, <a href="/OBD-II-Code-P0740">P0740</a>, <a href="/OBD-II-Code-P0780">P0780</a>, P1768 and/or P1768 will be stored in the computer.</p> <p>If the transmission shifts roughly, the failure is very likely mechanical failure of the transmission. If the transmission performs normally, a faulty sensor, or dirty<a href="/automatic-transmission-fluid"> transmission fluid</a> may be the case.</p> <p>In most cases, it is necessary to use professional diagnostic equipment to provide a diagnosis, and complete the repair.</p> <p>The longevity of the transmission is dependent on strict adherence to the manufacturer's recommendation for ATF <a href="/how-to-pick-a-maintenance-schedule">replacement intervals</a> and procedure.</p>

<p>The balance shaft seal tends to fall out causing a large oil leak. There is a retaining device available to prevent the seal from falling out, which can be put in place during routine <a id="ce_257" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/timing-belt-replacement">timing belt</a> maintenance.</p>
Car Review: 1997 Honda Accord
May 13, 2015, 07:23 PM
1997 HONDA ACCORD LX - AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION: Have had numerous major costly repairs with the Honda Accord LX, 4 cylinder, automatic transmission. Complete transmission failure at 55,000 miles, upper camshaft seal shifted, causing major oil loss, new starter, new radiator, near A/C compressor, new transmission solenoids, new altenator (replaced twice), and replacement of steering rack due to leakage from Honda continuing to use "rubber" instead of "silicone" which lasts much longer. Would NOT purchase another Honda Accord LX - 4 cylinder, automatic transmission, with so many known issues by Honda Corporation, especially premature automatic transmission failure. In my opinion, Honda Accord is no longer considered a reliable vehicle or good used car to purchase. Please review NUMEROUS premature automatic transmission failures for all years of this model before considering purchasing.
