THERE is no filter in a honda trany you can change. you have to rebiuld the trany to do it.
also it sounds more like the torque converter lock up is failing it's not uncommon for this to happen in automatic cars.
when you stop the force the the fluid in the torque converter drops and releases the the converter lock-up allowing the engine to turn freely as long as there is no force on the lock-up (mostly if it stuck in a gear from a failed solinoid)
if the shift solinoid was bad it would ether not go into a gear OR would not come out of a gear.
so if it's BAD and not going into gear you would see say 1st no 2nd then 3rd then 4th Or 1st 2nd NO 3rd then 4th
so from 0~17mph is 1st 18~28 is 2nd 29~38 is 3rd 39 and up is 4th
if it's bad and not going OUT of gear weather it's 3rd or 2nd the engine will stall and die when you come to a stop.
this is from the solinoid getting hot and seizing to the pintle shaft allowing the ATF to flow through and locking the gear in.
