My 6th gen 2.3 AT (with 102k) is starting to struggle deciding which gears to use from 1st to 2nd gear while slowing down then accelerating @ speeds around 10-15mph. If I accelerate hard in first gear, it will slip and over rev a little bit before it gets into 2nd. I can mostly avoid that problem by letting off the gas a little before it upshifts.
I am well-aware of the 6th automatic transmission failure rate, so I wont be suprised to hear if my trans is failing. *No blinking D4 light. But I've heard talk about "solenoid issues" that can cause these problems. Also, my automatic trans class instructor spoke about solenoid issues in Accords.
So I want to hear from HT what everyone thinks. If these solenoid problems could be solved, then it would save a lot of time & effort. How should I troubleshoot this problem?
