Hi, I have a 1992 Honda Accord LX Sedan. It has 132,000 miles on it. I have a couple of problems with the car. First, my automatic transmission sometimes hesitates before it shifts. Its does not happen all the time but it is a little delayed on shifting. Also my power windows are sometimes really slow when going up? Will I need a new motor? Also my back seatbelt wont retract anymore. Do I have to get a whole new seatbelt or can I fix it if I take it apart? Another thing is when I come to a stop at a stoplight, my steering wheel shakes so I have to rev the car a little to get it to stop but if I stop reving it, it will shake again. Thanks for your time! :D

Given the age of the vehicle, I suggest the following. Have the system flushed and fill with new Honda ZX1 fluid. If after that the system problem continues I might suggest one of a few products available to address that such as Lucas, JB, etc.

Also my power windows are sometimes really slow when going up? Will I need a new motor?

Get a bottle of armor all and spray it in the tracking with the window down. Let it sit for a while and then spray it again. Wipe the excess off. Run the window up and down a couple of times and maybe give it another shot. The motor does get weak but the channel or track does also get dried out and it causes the window to drag. Every couple of months give a shot and see how that helps out.

Also my back seatbelt wont retract anymore. Do I have to get a whole new seatbelt or can I fix it if I take it apart?

I am not sure about this one but I have tried the lube it the belt and that has helped. The unit is sealed and if you managed to get it apart you might just end up with pieces. If the lubing doesn't work, replacement is next.

Another thing is when I come to a stop at a stoplight, my steering wheel shakes so I have to rev the car a little to get it to stop but if I stop reving it, it will shake again. Thanks for your time!

I would check the tach or hook up a tach. It appears that the idle might be just a little low. I would consider turning up the bottom end idle manually with the screw located on the throttle body.
