      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.

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

    Clutch pedal has too much play

      If the clutch hydraulic system has been bled out and the free play is still excessive then it may be a bad clutch.

      Check with U-HAUL, they're selling the tow bars and they could give the right information.Hope this helps and be safe.

      Always either tow with drive shaft disconected or using towing equipment that keeps traction wheels off road, especially for long distances.

    Why does my car shift so hard when it's cold?
    my car has 125000miles on it ,I had the trans. flushed 2000 miles ago, this seemed to help a little at first but now it has started up again. It shifts real hard from 1st into 2nd gears and is much worse when it's cold, once it warms up it is not nearly as bad but ...

      It’s normal in cold weather or place that fluid becomes dormant when the vehicle is at rest for some hours and by this result, the gears will have difficulty in its performance during this time until the fluid reach proper temperature. The fluid has its recommended type for certain weather temperature condition. Perhaps your transmission fluid has a wrong type, consult your owner's manual and see what type of fluid is suited to your transmission or ask your dealer in the absence of manual. Try first to change with the recommended type of fluid and the filter and then observe the changes; don't just consider replacing the transmission in a hurry; exhaust all possible solutions first. Make it a practice to always warm up the engine for few minutes before driving.

    My car's trans starts at a snails pace then proceeds to pick up and change gears. Can you help?
    I checked, cleaned Selenoids and fluids. Do I need to check something else?

      sounds like it is sticking in first, could be many things that cause this in the transmission. Sticking valves or solenoid, maybe a bad torque convertor. slipping gears, a transmission specialist will tell you best, but most of the time these issues are internal transmission and there is no easy fix, rebuild or replace.
      11/9/2010 Mojo
      I was afraid of that. I cleaned and checked selenoids with carbruetor cleaner they look good. Sticking valves, I heard 3rd and 4th gears are located behind passenger wheel. Torque consverter where are they located? Thanks Man!!!!
      11/9/2010 Mojo
      OK. One last thing, How many sensors selenoids or valves control the gears shifting. List all if you know it is well appreicated........Thanks Again
      11/9/2010 Mojo
      I already rebulit the trans, supposedly.....according to last mechanic,,Filter maybe???

      And you did not post the code number here why? I think you mean code P0134 just a guess. Replace the O2 sensor and see.

    Change automatic transmission oil.
    How do you change your automatic transmission oil. Issue is how to fill trans once drained.
    • CVO
      11/5/2010 CVO
      To make easier, once drained, poured the old trans. fluid in an empty gallon oil recycled container and in the 2nd one as needed. One gallon is equal to 4 quarts.Once, the fill was satisfied with the measurements, started the engine with the transmission in NEUTRAL ( applied the parking brakes and blocked all the wheels for safety ) for 10 min and checked the transmission fluid dipstick for the correct level.Use the Honda Genuine Oil Transmission.

      11/5/2010 CVO
      Mr Troy, did you use the correct transmission fluid for the tranny. Mopar ATF + 3 or Mopar ATF +4 only and it is recommended by Dodge.

    Just replaced my flywheel and clutch but is still slipping at high rpm shifting from the first day of installation.
    have bleed slave, I also just found a leak in the tranny after topping off the fluid(1 quart) coming from the bellhousing. the tranny makes a lot of whinning noise may have to replace.
      11/2/2010 MOONSTER_TOOLZ
      It is possible that your pressure plate surface is contaminated with oil or the installation is not correct. Also a broken, missing or weak clutch disc springs may cause the slippage. Whining noise is due to low oil fluid in your tranny or damage gears inside. Check the condition of the fluid and add if necessary. Have a professional check the transmission prior to replacement decision.
