Hello, I have a 1999 Honda Accord LX 4dr that I bought from someone that refused to have it tested and decided not to fix it. The car drives okay and it is in fair conditions however; I noticed that in the morning when I do not let the car warm up for at least 30 minutes, the RPM goes very high when the car automatically gears up to 2nd. Also, when making a left or right turn and I attempt to speed up all I get is the RPM to go up but my speed stays the same or decreases. So, my work around that is get a good speed initiate my turn (left or right) and bring the steering wheel to center before stepping into the accelerator.
What seems to be wrong with the car?
Is it something that I can check or fix myself?
Your assistant will be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
