The transmission neutralizes and I can't shift to D or R, this happens after driving for like 20 minutes first loss power and when I stop to park it doesn't move.
After waiting for an hour it's back to normal.
Do you

Hi,

Is the transmission fluid clean and full? Also, is the check engine light staying on when the engine is running?

Here are the directions for checking the fluid level. Do this and let me know what you find. Also, let me know if the fluid is red / pink in color.

NOTE: Keep all foreign particles out of the transmission.

1. Warm up the engine to normal operating temperature (the radiator fan comes on).
2. Park the vehicle on level ground, and turn the engine off.

3. Remove the dipstick (yellow loop) (A) from the transmission, and wipe it with a clean cloth.
4. Insert the dipstick into the transmission.

5. Remove the dipstick and check the fluid level. It should be between the upper mark (B) and lower mark (C).
6. If the level is below the lower mark, pour the recommended fluid into the dipstick hole to bring it to the upper mark. Always use Honda ATF DW-1 (ATF-Z1 has been replaced with ATF DW-1, Honda Service News Nov 2010) Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). Using a non Honda ATF can affect shift quality.

7. Insert the dipstick back into the transmission in the direction shown.

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe
