Recently bought this 1994 Accord. Made some repairs and has been running great for the last 2 wks. Today I was driving in town today, no more than 35 mph, when I noticed the transmission was not shifting properly. I brought it to a stop and tried again. It shifts fine from 1st to 2nd then holds rpms to about 2500 before shifting 3rd. That is as far as I went for fear of causing any damage. I did notice the fluid was in need of changing but I had not done it because I have made other more pressing repairs so that I could drive it work. I need some help on where to start diagnosing the problem. From the research I've done there is no servicable filter without pulling the tranny. Could it be plugged? Could the shift solenoid screen be plugged or not operating properly and how do you test. I do not believe it is shot because this was the first sign of a problem and I did not continue driving it. Hopeful anyway. Thanks waiting for response.
