      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 ...

    I hear a roaring noise from the rear that turns into a sqweelling at higher speed.
    I have checked the brakes already.

      Only thing that is back there that makes substantial whine or "roaring" noise when it fails is a rear wheel bearing.

      what would be the est. cost of this repair?
    • HouseCallAuto
      4/13/2014 HouseCallAuto
      depends on if it has rear disc brakes or rear drum brakes but approximate bill would be $250 about for one side only. You only need to fix the side that has the noise.

      I'm sure its you and not the car. The car is brand new. You cannot compare this car to any other that youlearned on.

      Simple answer - first read the vehicle owners manual to make sure the shifting and clutch action is fully understood.
      This first step is important - not meant to insult your expertise or history with the manual transmissions - but at least you can follow up at the dealership, and state conclusively you have read and followed the recommended description in the owners manual.

      Typically, with any new car under warranty any strange clutch sounds or noises would qualify for the dealership to diagnose and repair the problem - you will want to have the issue repaired / corrected as soon as possible with the vehicle having only 800 miles.
