2012 Honda Accord SE 4 Cyl 2.40L
Transmissions & Drivetrains
Honda Accord 2012, occasionally car don't drive in drive mode, switching gear to normal and drive resolve the issue.
This started a month ago when I started my car in the morning to go for work car jerked when I put that in drive mode, I drove that to work and, on the motorway,, I noticed that car was not shifting on top gear (5th gear in my case) as it was doing 70 mph at 3000 rpm which it normally do at 2000 rpm. Anyway, that issue get resolved after few hours as while driving back home everything was normal. Later, two weeks ago I noticed that when I started my car and put it into drive mode it didn't move even though I was pressing the accelerator. I changed gear to normal and back to drive mode and it worked fine. After a while at a junction when car was at stationary position but in drive mode it failed to respond again, I changed gear and back to normal again. I take that to Honda dealer who did the diagnostics and advise to change the gearbox oil, which he did and find some carbon particles (No metal as I have seen that myself) on the magnet while draining the old oil but problem persists.
