Transmission problem
2000 Honda Accord 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles

I got check engine light last month and had the transmission rebuild after consulting a few mechanics in my area. I got the car back 2 weeks ago and it has been running smooth until yesterday. With the cold start, the car is idling too fast - it goes till 3000 rpm w/o giving any acceleration. It doesn't do that when the car has been driven for a while and is warm. I called the mechanic who fixed my transmission (I have a 1 year warranty on it) and he says this has nothing to do with what he changed. But my car never had a problem like this before and I'm concerned. Could you tell if this problem could have been caused while rebuilding the transmission?

Do you

I have a similar problem and it is worse when cold or just started. My 99 accord v6 slips and shifts hard into 2nd gear. I have been told that it could be the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid. Check this link out buddy...

I'm going to change my solenoid out and I will see if that helps the cold, hard shift. Hopes this helps
