    The trans is slipping. How do I get to the trans. filter to change it?
    It just started slipping last Friday and it seems to have gotten worse as the car is driven.

      These cars do not have a transmission pan. You can remove the drain plug and clean the magnet, but the transmission needs to be disassembled to replace the filter. Sounds like a visit to the transmission shop may be necessary.

      Did you checked the transmission mounts? It is possible that it is wheel bearing or you have a worn or damaged tie rod ends. Worn, damaged or faulty ball joints and uneven brake rotor surface can also results to shimmy conditions.

      Check the fluid condition may be low and also the throttle position sensor could be faulty. Have your engine scanned for stored trouble code. Visit any parts shops that offer free computer scanning to retrieve the codes and you can post it here so that the communities here were able to help you in diagnosing your trouble.

    When should a timing belt be changed?
     
    • yboy82

      Based on your scheduled maintenance intervals you should change your timing belt when you reach 90000 miles.

      My Honda Accord is 2001 but only have 50,000. My mechanic is recommending that my timing belt be replaced. Do you concur with my mechanic?

      Thank you.

      If your mechanic observes irregularities (worn/cuts) with your belt then he should recommend a replacement. But based in your vehicle’s maintenance interval you should replaced your timing belt 90,000 miles.

      50,000 miles a bit early on miles but not on age. I would replace it and the water pump too.

    With 40k on the odometer, what would cause the VSC light to illuminate?
    I checked the engine for trouble codes and found none. I cannot reset or estinguish the Vehicle Stability Control Light (VSL). What are the common causes for this light to be on and is there anything thaat I can do rather then trust the vehicle to a Honda shop?

      The communication between the engine control computer and the traction control computer is disabled. Get it rescanned again in Autozone, its free.

      I find it odd that there is no DTC, the traction control system has its own warning light and shares its internal self-diagnostics with the ABS system. If a fault occurs in any of the components that affect the operation of either system, one or both warning lights will come on and a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will be set in the control module that corresponds to the faults.

    What is a FILTER PG 1.189

      It is located right atop the transmission above the differential area. It has a three pin connector going to it. It may be black if is the original one, or silver if it has been replaced before. Get a flash light, shine it right below the intake air tube. You will recognize it once you see the three 6mm bolts that are holding it on the transmission & also the connector lock bracket on top of it.

    What and where is the tork converter in the honds accord lx

      Its on the transmission on the left side if you are facing your car, you have to bring down the tranny to see it.

      A torque converter is responsible for shifting your gears in an automatic transmission vechiel

    What is a torque converter
     
    • Pave Low
      10/12/2010 Pave Low
      In the simplest of terms, its what makes your vehicle shift gears. If you shift to "D" and you didnt move, chances are your TC is failing.

    Checking to see if I need to replace Transmission?
    The clutch was replaced by the owner. When I press on clutch, there is no noises, but when I let go, I hear a whirling/grinding noise. Do I need to replace the transmission?
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      The clutch assembly needs to recheck again. The noise is probably due to defective throw out bearing or failed input shaft bearing.
