    Automatic Trans hard downshift to First gear when stopping
    When approaching a stop as I slow and the RPMs get to about 1000 rpms, the car shifts down hard to first rpms just to 1500 then idle at stop at 500 rpms. If I come to a fast stop, hard on brakes no hard downshift. My transmission guy said yea they can do that ...

      Do you have an automatic transmission? Because if you do, it is possible that your main control solenoid is stuck or damaged. If possible diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to know if there is a stored trouble code in your vehicle and if all your electrical controls and sensors in your transmission are still working great. The other common (but not limited) possible causes of it are damage main control separator plate and loose main control assembly bolt or its gasket is damaged.

      Whose fault was it? Either way you still have to bring it to a repair shop, transmission jobs are not generally a DIY activity. And incase its not your fault, aren't they covered with warranty? your car is barely 2 years old.

      Also, this is the firs time i heard of a DTC with Code E, most DTC's start with a Pxxxx

    • J and K AUTOMOTIVE TOWING AND REPAIR
      bim here is what i found out for you i have no clue if this will help you but good luck................................................I have a 2009 CR-V EX-L, the battery went dead and I got the "Code Error E" message. I did not know where the reset code was, so I went to the dealer. The guy at the desk found the code in my service book. He tried to re-set and couldn't, then he removed the "backup" fuse for 10 mins and re-installed The Code Error E was still there. I couldnt leave the car so I left. I tried removing the "Backup" fuse, while it was out I checked the radio, still had power, just the door locks didnt work. Finally I disconnected the battery for 10 mins, when I re-connected and turned on the rado, I had the option to enter the code, I did and it worked. Note that the owners manual said after an hour you would be able to re-enter the code if you got the Code Error E message, but that did not happen. Only thing that worked was disconnecting the battery.

      Do you mean that your transmission fluid is low? Do you have a transmission fluid visible leak? What have you done to fix your vehicle?

    What are the problems of my car because I have engine light and SRS light on?
    I have 175000 miles. Codes are P1167 and P1162

      P1167/P1162 Before and after ccatalytic- Usually this is an O2 sensor code, BUT that is quite different from the front sensors, most people thing its an O2 sensor but it is an A/F ratio sensor. Make sure your car is under the correct emiisions label because there are times that a car in hmmmm let say New York that has the CA emission label and those mismatches trigger the code. Also F23A1 is VTEC and the F23A4 is ULEV VTECH. There is a big difference when it comes to the correct O2 Sensor.

      P1167 is HO2S S1 heater failure
      P1162 is (AF Sensor) (S1) failure
      You probably need to replace the AF sensor before the cat. The SRS light is the air bag. I've seen some Honda dealers that will check and reset this for free (first time). If it comes back they will need to troubleshoot the SRS system.

    Feels like when i hit the gas its not going as fast as it should and engin revs pretty loud
    does this mean i need a whole new tranny... what does this mean?
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Your transmission is probably slipping and this is due to any of the following; friction disc is damaged or the clutch assembly is defective; oil in the flywheel also can make this kind of problem; the torque converter is malfunctioning due to reduce pressure (automatic); transmission bands are not adjusted well; worn out transmission gears; dropped in fluid level. Also check your transmission mounts, it may be torn or broken. Replacing the transmission will be your last option.

    How do I replace a speedodometer sensor on my vehicle?

      purchase the part, any local part supplier should have this. on your vehicle it should be located on the back side of the transmission towards the top. easy job. check your gauge cluster also, common to go out as well.

    Why does my right rear brake calipar make a noise when I pull off from being stopped? Mechanic says calibar - not trans
    90,000 miles. Transmission fluid was leaking prior to problem. Replaced cooler hoses.

      Your calipers are getting stuck, they are not disengaging after you have stopped the car and you have moved forward again. Of course if that happened to be, id see if it can be repaired by lubricating it (usually a stuck moving component of a car lacks lubrication thus geting stuck). Worst case scenario would be you have to replace your caliper.
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      I suggests not lubricate the caliper, because oil will get into the pads and rotor, therefore you will slip when braking. I recommend checking the condition of the brake assembly in the affected wheel. Possibly the piston is stuck due to worn seal/gasket in the slave cylinder. Air bubbles can also cause you this; check, replace the parts and bleed the system.

    Lately I have had no acceleration. I push the gas and the engine revs but the car just does not want to accelerate.
    My car has 160,000 miles and is a manual transmission.

      Did you already check the condition and adjust you transmission linkages? It is possible that it is out of adjustment or damaged.

      It sounds like you need to replace the clutch. Here's a link for parts pricing. If you take it to a shop, the labor time is 7.4 hours.

    What all would i need to install the acura 3.2 6cyl type s 6mt into my automatic honda
    my tranny blew and I wanted to replace it with a manual. is it better to swap the whole motor and tranny from acura? where can i get a good deal on motor and tranny? would i be able to swap the the 3.5L motor from 2001 RL in and still use 6mt from acura 3.2cl type s?

      No, i dont think it will fit, just get a motor and tranny assy, Acura engines now are not like the B or D or H series engines that you can mix and match

      Ex. B18c5 type r head mated to a b16a block

      A Blinking "D" light indicates a transmission computer failure. The computer controls the shift points so it is something that needs to be addressed. Had the same thing happen and Honda replaced the entire transmission. Luckily when mine failed, it was still under warranty. The transmissions have always been weak problem spot in the 01-03 Odysseys.

    Is this a problem with the solenoid?
    It has 170,000 miles and I was driving down my road one day and my car was in drive but it woundnt go. I even pushed on the gas and it just reevs up in drive. I cut it off and an hour or so later it will drive down the road and do the same thing all over again.

      Sounds to me like the gear shifter needs adjustments, maybe its binding some where.
