98 Honda Prelude 2.2 VTEC Auto-Tiptronic Transmission Problems

Hi my prelude started by slipping out of gear, and was losing transmission fluid. Not it will not go into to gear at all, and I am hoping against hope that it is not a replacement gearbox I need. Since it was losing fluid, could it be a problem with low pressure, due to a leaking seal or something?
I have also seen some post suggesting solenoid problems, and torque convertor problems? Might these be the cause?
I got local garage to look at the car, and their verdict was that the box needed to replaced, although they gave no explanation as to why - I think they're experience with this car was not great.
Just on another note, when I topped up the transmission fluid, I used an ATF fluid supplied by the local Motor Factors, and not genuine Honda Fluid. Would this have any bearing on the problem?

I own a 1999 Honda Prelude base model with a automatic sequential tiptronic trans. If your willing to try a couple of things you might get lucky a save your trans. If my suggestions doesn't help your trans
performance then it time to pull out the pocket book. Drain the trans
fluid. Flush the cooler. Remove the 2 solenoid right by the starter motor. Most likely the 2 metal screens are plugged up. Clean them up with parts cleaner. Then wire the solenoids to a battery so when you spray into them with the parts cleaner you can energize the solenoids while spraying cleaner into the 2 ports. The purpose of this is to free up anything that could be making the solenoids stick. Reassemble the
solenoids back onto the trans. Fill the trans with 3 Qts. of OEM Honda fluid. Run the gears through the gears. Then drain that fluid. Do this one more cycle. On the last fill pour a bootle of Lube Guard Additive to condtion the fluid. Good Luck

I can tell you that the gearbox is done....

what happened is when you run low on fluid, your transmission will start to slip. first it will slip the third gear then the second, then the drive and finally the reverse...until you can't shift no more

there are bans in the transmission that needs to be in fluid at all time or they will wear out really fast resulting in gearbox failliure.

so to get at that point you had to have a leak somewhere...

but you can always have your transmission rebuilt.

Will a 1993 prelude automatic transmission fit my 1992 honda accord


If it's the S model, it *should* as it has a F22 motor in it.. the Si and SE has a H23 motor, and the VTEC has a H22 motor. I have heard of people using the F22 transmission on a Prelude motor for longer gearing at highway speeds (per Honda-Tech.com), but I haven't tried the combination myself

Code p0734 I just replaced eng. and trans. now have this code.


Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit Tech notes Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary. When is the code detected? P0734 is detected when A/T cannot be shifted to the 4th gear position even if electrical circuit is good. P0734 NISSAN Description This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (4th) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

Trans slips


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you replace the automatic transmission fluid. If the fluid is burnt the transmission tends to slip, stuck in gear or shifts slowly. Once replaced, a smooth ride and shifting will be noticeable.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Transmission slipping


You have a problem with the bands in the transmission. They will need to be adjusted to correct the problem. Also have the transmission filter changed with new transmission fluid. Check the fluid level in transmission first,if low add fluid and test drive. If its the same as before you will need to go to a transmission place to have the bands adjusted to correct the problem. Hope this will help you.

My automatic transmission in 2000 Civic EX is slipping was running fine then on the way home it started o slip going in to 2nd. It loses speed going up a hill I have parked it. Is there a adjustment to...


Check the transmission fluid level and condition of the fluid. Add Automatic Transmission Fluid as needed and do not over fill. Have the transmission line pressure tested and service the transmission. "replace the transmission oil and filter" Star with that and hope the transmission is not gone to far that you may need any other transmission. Keep me posted and shop around to find a good transmission shop.

92 thunderbird transmission slipping, its about a half of a quart low. would this cause it to slip and what type of fluid do you use?


Absolutely; Automatic transmissions will slip for a number of factors but the the #1 cause is low fluid level closely followed by very old and brown fluid. Recomended fluid is MerconDexronII. Best of luck.
