Transmission problem
1988 Honda Prelude 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

i recently pulled my motor an tranny out to replace the rear main seal and when I dropped it back in an hooked every thing up and all that I took off to test drive it and transmission wont shift now. Its almost like its stuck in third or fourth gear an wont shift up or down I can manually shift it into second gear and itll take off little better but if I leave it in drive you can hear the motor trying really hard to get the car going however when I do finally get up tp bout 50 or 60 mph it runs like it should but wont downshift or any thing else what could be wrong with it?

Hi Jdouglas13,

Are you able to shift into the various positions?

Is the throttle pressure cable adjusted correctly?

Is vehicle carburetted or fuel injected?

Was the torque converter seated correctly when installing the trans?
