    Never had a problem with clutch before.

      Insufficient description. What are you saying? As it is written I would understand this to mean that the clutch pedal stays down at the floor when you remove your foot. Is that correct? Or are you saying that the pedal goes to the floor but does not "disengage" the transmission?

      The decision to rebuild the existing transmission, or to replace - would be based on if the current transmission is rebuildable; i.e. the condition. At any rate, if you plan to keep the vehicle for any length of time - purchase the best rebuilt transmission backed by the longest warranty; three (3) years minimum.
      As far as which transmission repair shop in your area, research the 'Find-A-Shop' feature on the AutoMD website. Ideally, the existing CVT transmission is rebuildable - as the master rebuild kit (parts kit) is only around $115.00 from any of these on-line sources; www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.

    What's with the loud squeal from the rear? A short time later, noted loss of pull or traction.
    Noted some traction issues yesterday, but thought it was the roads. Today, backed out & heard loud squeal from the back end which quit when put into drive and did not hear again even when in reverse. About 15 minutes later, had difficulty navigating a side road with ...

      I believe that you have a bad rear wheel speed sensor and the abs is engaging with false activation or traction control is engaging when it shouldn't. There are fault codes stored but require a professional expensive scan tool which the average guy does not have at home. there are fault data codes that will provide the needed info to decide what parts to replace and on which wheel.

    H22A transmission problem
    Hello, I drive a 94 Accord with a H22a swap. This is a 96 Vtec Prelude motor. I have a tranny problem. When the car is off, the tranny does not go into 4th gear unless i force it. Same for 5th, but it does not take as much force. When I am driving the car, first ...

      Probably the tranny itself but the linkage still has to be looked at while someone moves the shifter through the gear positions. It's not the clutch.

    Why is manual transmission stiff?
    Was having trouble shifting into 5th and now having trouble with 3rd and 5th gears. Also can't tell if gear shift is in neutral. The car has 341,000 miles. No work has been performed on the car, the mechanic told me it was just old.

      Of course it has a cause but you have ether a lazy mechanic or an inexperienced one. Get it to a different shop. The excuse "it's old" is frankly ...{old} and its just him saying that to avoid having to look at it.

    What could cause my back wheels to lock up?
    I had noticed a winding noise when accelerating that seemed to be coming from rear . I was driving at about 65 mph and suddenly locked up. I couldn't even push it off of the road. The front wheels move by hand freely. The rear wheels are harder to turn by hand. ...

      Yes. put truck in neutral and see if you can turn the rear driveshaft and go from there. Might have a seized up pinion bearing. It might have severe enough damage that it would require a new rear differential.

    Clutch or Transmission or ?
    My '04 honda civic lx 5speed wont shift into 2, 4, or reverse. It is as though something is stuck in the tree so i don't have the three speeds at the bottom of the shift. i can only shift into 1st, 3rd and 5th. Is it the transmission, the clutch, or both?

      In order to determine transmission or shifter linkage, the shift linkage has to be disconnected from the transmission and then the transmission has top be manually engaged to confirm that the unit can be put into 2nd, 4th and reverse. After doing that then the focus goes on to what went wrong with the shifter.

    Why does my little Civic refuse to start up when on grass?
    even when it hasn't rained for days when I park my car on grass it won't start. if I keep trying it will eventually but am always scared I will flood it. I have not had the car for long and have never this issue with other cars in the past. I would appreciate any ideas.

      It has nothing to do with being on grass, that much I can tell you with certainty.

      You have to check and see if there is NO SPARK when it does not start, and if no spark the fix would be to replace the distributor ass'y. If there is spark when the car does not start, do NOT replace the distributor.

      something maybe a few grains of sand are in the valve body of the transmission. This is an experts area so tread lightly.

      If your brake lights are also not working, replace your brake light switch on the brake pedal.
