If it had /has a filter check to see if it is in all the way otherwise check your fluid level anything other than that have a trans guy look at it.

Being such high mileage, it maybe due for a transmission. However, its possible it may be low on fluid. Honda has a routine for checking the trans fluid level. Start the car, move your shift selector through the gears, then back to park. Shut the vehicle off. Within 60 seconds, pull your trans dipstick, and check the level. Let us know what you find.

Check your transmission fluid level and condition. Were you changing the fluid to remedy a problem you were having or did this problem arise after you changed the fluid? Did you use Honda trans fluid?
