Default auto tranny won't shift!

I have a 92eg hatch, and in the morning, it won't shift out of second. When it finally decides to get it's act together, it makes a loud noise (sounds like when you hit a puddle) and then it will finally shift. I noticed that when it makes the noise, my speedomoter needle moves with the noise...that makes me wonder if it's my computer that's screwed up, or my tranny. Anyone have any suggestions???

Thanks

Lisa

Honda Automatics suck. Try flushing it and see what happens. Maybe it's time for a Manual Transmission swap.

Yeah, actually I was going to do that...but I'm too poor to buy all the crap I need to do it...someone was going to actually give me an ex 5 speed, but it was $600 to buy all the stuff to go with it, so I didn't take it. Oops.

^ Agreed. Know what's happening to your car at the shop. If nothing else, if this question comes up again, you can answer it.

I was actually following my boyfriend there cuz he's getting his tranny fixed, and I asked them about it, and they put in the miracle liquid.

No, it was in a red bottle, I don't remember what he said it was, it comes in a blue bottle too for newer cars...whatever it was, it worked.

He called it "slippery stuff", but anyway, it doesn't work anymore, still having the same problem.

well, traded the car in, so no more tranny problem! Got me a 94 del sol! 5 speed, so hopefully I won't have problems with it.
