TRANSMISSION TROUBLES

1990 Honda Accord

Bought the car used. Automatic Transmission that has the Sport/Normal Switch on the shifter, and the " S" Light on the Dashboard.

Ok, The " S" light started blinking. The owners manual stated that there MAY be a problem with the transmission. My daughter tells me that the Speedometer will quit working, then the light starts blinking, a short time later the speedometer starts working again, but the light keeps blinking. The transmission shifts a little funny as well. You actually have to let your foot off the gas to get it to shift into 3rd or 4th gear. Any Ideas?

It sounds like a possible Variable Speed Sensor that is having problems.
