Could be a clogged fuel filter, bad throttle position sensor, bad throttle cable, clogged fuel line, bad fuel pump, bad map/maf sensor. have your throttle position sensor and cable checked.

How will i know that the transmission oil is due for change

Normal maintenance for a transmission is required every 30,000 - 50,000 miles. Fluid change should be in there as well. If your fluid looks brownish blackish I would have it changed with a new filter kit. If it's a high mileage vehicle, a conditioner wouldn't hurt either.

Transmission problem with 97 camry

The 97 has an allen head(14mm?) drain plug on the pan. Drain the fluid and
exaimine it in a clear container. Good transmission fluid smells like new ATF and is usually red. If yours is dark and smells burnt AND/OR HAS DEBRIS IN IT which I think is likely, you will need a new ******.

Check your transmission fluid level as noted on the trans. dipstick. If low add to proper fill level but Do Not overfill ! If it is low this may solve your problem if not it mat require shop service. Possibly a new transmission filter or maybe worse a trans overhaul.

Let out transmission fluid, can i put it back and how

yes by filling through the transmission dipstick tube, if you have a "fill for life" model without a dipstick tube, you will need to get under the car and on the side of the transmission look for an alen head socket about half way up the side, fill with the correct fluid until the fluid is level with the alan socket you removed, when it starts to flow out ,there is plenty in the transmission, be careful, it has been debated by engineers that a car that has over 100k miles and never has had the fluid replaced should be left alone, as the wearing and viscosity of the fluid will change with new fluid hence the phrase "fill for life " fluid. This fluid is usually recognized as atf+2,3,4.. dexron and mercon are servicable fluids

How much fluid do i put in after a fluid and filter change transm

If you are just dropping the pan and changing the filter it will probably take aprox. 4 maybe 5 quarts. I would add 4 and check it befor adding more . Just dont actually put it into gear until you know the fluid level is correct. Make sure to give the fluid enough time to get out of the dipstick tube so you get a accurate reading

1996 Honda Accord automatic transmission lay-out?

You will probably be ok for a while if you tow it, fix the leak, and change the fluid and filter. Honda makes a pretty tough transmission. Depending on how much destroyed clutch material is in the pan when you change fluid will detrimine how long it will last. Make sure yu use the correct fluid in it. Wish you the best. Hope this helps, and please rate me highly.
