i have an 2004 honda civic DX/VP automatic and starts up great, idles good. you put it in gear no slipping just wont pull the car like the solenoids wont en-gauge the transmission. i've posted before and thought the problem went away now its back. what do i do???
- Engine runs but vehicle does not move in any gear.
- Low ATF level
- Shift cable broken or out of adjustment
- Joint in shift cable and transmission or body worn
- ATF pump worn or binding
- Regulator valve stuck or spring worn
- ATF strainer clogged
- Mainshaft worn or damaged
- Final gears worn or damaged
- Transmission-to-engine assembly error
- Axle disengaged
- Check the ATF level, and check the ATF cooler lines for leakage and loose connections. If necessary, clean the ATF cooler lines.
- Check for a loose shift cable at the shift lever and the transmission control shaft.
- Improper alignment of ATF pump and torque converter housing may cause ATF pump seizure. The symptoms are mostly an RPM-related ticking noise or a high pitched squeak.
- Check the line pressure.
- If the strainer is clogged, find the damaged components that caused the debris.
- Inspect the differential pinion gears for wear. If the differential pinion gears are worn, replace the differential assembly, replace the ATF strainer, thoroughly clean the transmission, and clean the torque converter, cooler, and lines.
- Be careful not to damage the torque converter housing when replacing the main ball bearing. You may also damage the ATF pump when you torque down the main valve body. This will result in ATF pump seizure if not detected. Use the proper tools.
- Install the main seal flush with the torque converter housing. If you push it into the torque converter housing until it bottoms out, it will block the fluid return passage and result in damage.
245k but when it does work it pulls and works great. i was driving it around for over 2 weeks without a problem. then it did it again. i wonder if the POSITION SENSOR ASSY down on the lower end of the tranny could be it? seems like a sensor or something is to blame!
i have a code reader, no other codes or flashing lights
well only once the code P0741 -Torque converter clutch circuit performance or stuck off
i erased it and i can make it come up again when i unplug the torque converter solenoid. i've been checking repeatedly for loose connections no luck on it helping. i will test the TRS very soon and get back on here to let u know what it says
i have the shop service manual like the honda dealership has. plus i have replaced the shift solenoids A & B (set) with known good ones. but theres main shaft speed sensor, counter shaft speed sensor, VSS, TRS, and the torque converter solenoid. as i've learned all these sensors or solenoids help control the tranny. oh yea plus the solenoids right above the shift ones, cant think of the name. i've just got to use what info u gave me and check them all out.
after more testing threw the harness when in park it tested as if it was in Neutral. the harness is new and the switch as u see is worn. there is a recall on this part and includes my car.
Poor continuity within the internal bands of the
transmission range switch.
temp seems to have a factor as well. if everything is cold it takes 3 min of driving before it screws up. if its been ran hot messed up then parked and turned off for 5 min allows about another of 1 min of driving before doing the same.the switch would get heat from the hot fluid in the tranny flowing threw the tranny but its not got fluid running to it (trs) which im sure u know. im gonna just get a new one and hope it fixes it. any other suggestions im open to them!!
replaced the switch with new one from honda. did not fix it!! i was told by a shop i trust that its internal pressures. when i blow out the tranny with compressed air it starts to work again. called honda dealership the guy told me to flush the tranny by draining the tranny and adding back 3/4 of new honda ATF. repeat till its all replaced. he said it would clear out what sounds like a clog. yes indeed very unique problem.
