    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.

    Why does my car hesitate when shifting gears, and whines ?
    - automatic transmission - 40K miles, bought it used with 36K - car hesitates when shifting gears from 1st to 2nd at "low acceleration", typically between 1500 & 1800 RPMs - it does it cold or warm - shifting at high acceleration seems normal, and shifting from ...

      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

    Can you provide the wiring pinout for the connector wires going to the output shaft vehicle speed sensor (VSS) on trans?
    The wiring harness pulled out of the connector which goes to the vehicle speed sensor on top of my automatic transaxle resulting in no speedometer indication. I need to know the wiring pinout/orientation for the connector so I can make sure the wires connect to the ...

      Thanks for your prompt response. I connected the colored wires according to the pinout arrangement looking at the speed sensor pins from left to right (1,2,3), and my speedometer/odometer/transmission are working normally again.

    Do you think this is a Transmission Leak and is it serious or easy fix?
    I was driving my 02 Honda Accord Automatic on the Highway. Everything was fine, no noises or warning signs that something was wrong. Then all of a sudden my car switched to Neutral and so I switched it to D3 which is lower than the normal Drive. It drove and so ...

      My first suspicion would be that one of your axle seals went. Transmission internal pressures can reach as high as 200 psi. That along with a bad seal can squirt fluid quit the distance. This is what I would predict as far as what you described. As far as repairs to , you're looking at a relatively cheap price for the seal itself, and probably around 200-300 to replace the seal....usually those seals aren't too hard to replace, just a matter of removing the cv axle which requires tire, tie rod end, ball joints, knuckle, and strut removal.

    Lurch at full stop. Automatic transmission seems to drop into lowest gear harshly.
    When coming to full stop, car lurches as if you had just put it into first gear from neutral. Has not been well maintained. High mileage. Trans fluid not low. Wondering if it could possibly be something less expensive then rebuild or replace.

    When I'm driving the car I feel a shake in the gas pedal but the sound is heard through out the car is this a danger?
    What could it be that needs to be fixed. When I'm going straight it does it some times it's not constant. I've beentold that it could be the cv joint because when I pull on the wheel it shifts outward some but the driver side wheel doesn't.

    There is a vibration coming from where the shifter is for the automatic transmission.
    Recently my civic has been making a vibration from where the shifter is. It's an automatic. It revs without vibration all the way until it gets to 6000rpm's and then until it reaches redline at 6700rpm's it vibrates. So between 6000- 6700 it vibrates. It sounds ...
