Once again, thank you for your ongoing advice and your prompt replies. My car does not hesitate when starting it. Actually, it starts much faster than brand new cars I have driven. It turns over and starts after just two rolls, and sometimes just one roll. I am greatful to you, as I am solely relying on your responses as of now. I have posted the same question on Yahoo answers along with a couple more knowlageable mechanic sites. You are the only one that has replied at all. Thank you. My 96 honda accord also shifts hard, especially while its not warmed up yet. The trans does not slip at all. Just shifts hard, and I have no idea what thats about. Ive been told it's the shift solenoid, and also that a power flush would fix it. However, I do not rely on what auto shops tell me because they are trying to take you for everything you have. Its a shame. Btw, my car only has 85,000 miles on it, which is very low for a 1996.
