I have a 1997 Honda Civic. In order to slow down very quick on freeway, let say, 80miles/hr, not only use brake, I used to switch the gear from D4 to D3. Started from last month, I notice that there is a short delay when switch from P to D4 and a "click" sound from somewhere around the engine. I took my car to a transmission shop and they told me there is delay in forward transmission and the transmission needs to be rebuild which costs around $2k! I suspect because I switch from D4 to D3 quite often and this damage my transmisson.
