SHIFTS HARD INTO ALL GEARS

1994 Honda Accord

Transmission problem
1994 Honda Accord 4 cyl Automatic 146000 miles

What could be causing my accord to shift hard? It seems to shift harder into first and second, then third is a little gentler, but you can still feel it. It looks like the fluid has been changed recently because it's not real dark. Where should I start? Thanks!

Hi Acrdownr,

Check the tran throttle cable adjustment. It is most probably adjusted too short resulting in high pressure.

The throttle lever at the trans should only move when the accelerating throttle moves and not before.
