1996 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 287, 10 miles
for the past 37k mi tranny has slipped. I have to drive the veh by putting it in neutral approaching stop and red lights. On freeway off-ramps I need to go into neutral, turn eng off then back on after several seconds. Car runs fine. I'm getting 37 1/2 mpg (used to be 43 mpg) and I know it's 12 plus yrs old and even honda said junk it--37k mi ago but the big 300k is fast approaching and I want to make that milestone. Besides, this car ranks with the top 5 "fuel efficient" veh's on the market--some sad progress for 12 yrs by the car companies. Including honda. Is there something more than changing tranny fluid (that doesn't make ANY difference) that can be done? I read of a linear solenoid assy but it doesn't seem to apply to this cvt. Any thoughts.
have the same problem?
