Hello, I was driving normal today, and turned a corner, when I pressed on the gas, I had no acceleration. I tried to shift the transmission into a different gear (auto) and still nothing. I pulled over and cut off the car, I looked under the hood, and didn't see anything obvious. I started it back up, and the transmission engaged, but only for a short while. then back to nothing, no reverse, no anything. Shut it off and started it back up in 5 minutes, I had revers, but then when to shift into D4, and back to nothing, I could even go back to reverse. Any suggestions? 1997 Accord DX value model , 4 speed auto. 219K on it. everything else runs like a champ.

Sounds like an internal pressure problem in your transmission. Barring any check engine codes, you may be looking at a transmission overhaul.

At this point dont know if it is actually worth doing that. The car is not worth that much, so even a new (used) transmission might not be worth it. It is 15 years old, and I bought it cheap. I am going to change the fluid and see what happens. Then I will decie on what to do. Pulling out the transmission does not sound like a "fun" task.

Kind of curious what color is the atf? Hopefully, red or pink and not brown or black. Just pull the trans dipstick. Sounds like the trans is toast.

Transmission Fluid was reddish on the dipstick. Will hopefully get to change it this weekend. I will say it is way over due on a fluid change. Should be interesting..
