I have a 1997 honda civic ex with automatic transmission that is giving me some problems. When I first start the car I runs fine with the exception of a rattling sound from the transmission. It will go for about 5-10 min the it will not go at all. When it stops working the tranny sound goes away. Iv been told several things it could be : computer, solinoids. Do you have any idea what it is?

Hi jeffery,

Thank you for the donation.

Noise in trans while moving is not caused by solenoids or TCM. Something is wrong withe the gears or sgafts and since trans fails after a short travelling, you would have to disassemble the trans to find out what is wrong.

I suspect some part of the trans is loose inside and high possibility are the rear lock nuts of the shafts have worked themselves loose.
