    Why will my car shift into 2nd, 4th, and Reverse fine, but will not shift into 1st, 3rd, or 5th?
    The car had been running fine but started becoming difficult to shift until it would not shift into 1st, 3rd or 5th. I replaced the clutch, but it did not fix the problem. It shifts into 2nd and 4th just fine. I am confused.

      As the first step, check the transmission fluid level - refill as necessary. If the fluid level is OK, then there may be other issues - including the transmission itself.

    The drive 4 indicator light flickers or stays on and the car is usually stuck in one gear.
    I replaced the speed sensor but the problem came back. I tried cleaning the pig-tail connection, it seemed to work at first. I noticed that when I disconnected the battery and reconnected the problem would go away for awhile. I hear a clicking under the hood when ...

    When installing the shifter cables to the shifter lever or mechanism does it have to be centered with the rods?
    Reason for asking is I've changed the transmission twice and third got locked up. When the lever is on neutral the cables are centered. But when I move the lever into gear lets say third and try to center the cables they aren't centered. Actually the cable going ...

      is your vehicle a manual or automatic transmission? This will make the biggest difference in the type of fluids to use. Manual transmissions tend to use a thicker grade of oil, usually 75w90 or 80w90. Automatics are a completely different animal, and will require a specific type of ATF base on the car you drive. Make sure you get the correct type of ATF (if yours is automatic) because different manufacturers' fluids have different friction modifying coefficients. If you put the wrong kind in your transmission it will not function properly. Your best bet, especially since you have a honda, is to buy the correct fluid from the dealer.

      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.

      Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:

      Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
      Dirty air filter (change filter)
      Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
      Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
      Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
      Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
      Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
      Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
      Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

      Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

      Dirty or worn spark plugs
      Bad plug wires
      Weak ignition coil
      Wet plug wires
