I have a 1998 Honda Accord, four door. It has around 140,000 + miles. Not sure what wheel drive it is but if I have to guess I would say 2 wheel. It has an automatic transmission. The dealership says that it has a small oil leak. I have not seen evidence of this but know that I do have to add oil sometimes. I felt as if the transmission was slipping so I took it to the dealership but they said there was not a problem after driving it. This happened about 6 months ago or so.
The question is would the transmission be causing the RMP's to rev up? I have noticed that when the car is shifting gears the RMP's go up to about 3000. Is this normal? It feels as though the car's engine really has to struggle to change from 1st to 2nd gear and from 2nd to 3rd gear. Do you have any ideas why this could be happening? The transmission fluid is at normal range.
