HELLO, CAN YOU ANSWER A TRANSMISSION QUESTION FOR ME PLEASE?

1996 Honda Accord • 18,000 miles

At 180,000 miles my transmission failed and had a used on put in. From the very first day it was put in you had to get the RPM's up to over 2500 to get it to start rolling forward before it would "catch" and slowly take off and then it would be fine. I took it back to the guy that put it in and he told me that it had to be driven like a manual tranny using the shifter in first, then second ect. It works fine like that but very annoying. He says because its a used tranny you cant match it up exactly and can do nothing for me. Is there something like a tourque converter that could be the issue? There was also another thing that concerned me, When you look at the concole for the shifter, as I always remembered the light around the gear you were dring in was illuninated in green and since the tranny change it is now red. What do you think? Thanks

Well I just got back from advance and the codes are: p0753, 0758.0304,0141, 0171. The car still shifts well, not sure if it is worth repairing or not. What do you think?

P0753/P0758 pertains to shift solenoids A/B in the transmission

P0304 misfiring at cylinder no.4

P0141-Oxygen sensor

P0171-lean fuel condition

Its worth keeping it, if its me-try and get the solenoids fix-both could be sticking that's within the valve body. Start here

P0304 could be a sparkplug, compression and injector problem
P0141 and P0171 could be related causing it to run lean
