My wife's 98 honda crv will not go into gears. When you put it in any gear, the car will not move. All you hear is the engine revving. I changed the tranny fluid with honda fluid but no luck. When she told me about it, it was still driveable. Then I changed the fluid, and now it's non driveable. Do you think it could be the transmission control solenoid? If so, where is it located and can I changed it without tearing the tranny apart. Is there a way to check it cause it is kinda pricey? Or do I just need another tranny? I went to start the car today and tried it out. Its working and I tried driving it around the house. Don't want to take it on the streets yet incase it dies out, but will try. Any ideas on what it could be if it works again? Today I took the car on a road test. It seemed fine until the check engine light came on and rpm reved up to 4000 and it it would not change gears. There was smoke from tailpipe when it happen cause wife follow and saw it. Came back home and parked it. Going to find code and see what it is, but still curious what it could be. Any help here before I replaced tranny?
have the same problem?
