Default 2002 Honda Accord hard shifting

Hi,
Yes, I've read the other threads but my problem is slightly different. My Maint req light is on. When I put it in D4 it jerks. Only on 1st gear does it have like a grinding sound and stalls a bit then goes. When I slow down to first gear same problem. I haven't checked the fluid levels yet. Anything. I told someone about it and they said that it's not the transmission going out but maybe a part that needs to be fixed.

wtf are you talking about the alternator.....it makes no sense what so ever....your maintenance required light is only an oil change indicator and is tripped by mileage .....something may be wrong internall with the transmission

Call me crazy but I don't think a bad alternator would cause his car to jerk when he puts it in gear. How many miles?

It has 95,000 miles. I took it to this place and they told me that the 1st and 2nd gear clutch are going out. That they need to rebuild the transmission. 1500,00. Is there anything to keep it going longer? Maybe a tranny oil change?

then stop driving your car likes its a stick...but an alternator would not cause the car to jerk dude sry you must have had other issues....and as for the tranny....they say its not good to change the fluid that oftem because of the planetaries inside as the hondas dont have a changeable tranny filter
