Transmission problem
1997 Honda Prelude 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 133000 miles

Hi,
I have a 97 Prelude Sh. Recently, I have some problems with the transmission. When the car is cold, the gears shift fine, but after driving it for about 5-7 miles, the gears become hard and do not shift from 4th to 5th.I have to shift back to 4th which it wont without having to try for a couple of times and then it will change to 5th with a bit of grind. The car is equipped with ATTS and recently the ATTS lights came "ON".I got the error codes for that which are 52, 62, 65, 79. All these indicate to low oil level. I did not get the ATTS fluid replaced. The car moves fine and there is no sign of clutch wear. The clutch fluid levels are at full. I would really appreciate if you could help me with this issue. Do I need to replace the clutch and manual transmission fluid?I just purchased the car from the dealer about a month ago. AS-IS the car has no warranty on it. Please advice.

Hi prasan4311,

# 52 = left and right shift solenoid.
# 62 + 65 = Oil pressure sensor.
# 79 = ATTS control inhibitor.

Did you check the oil level?
Did you reset and retest or fault?
