The computer is set up to not allow the torque converter to lock up until a certain running temperature is attained. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-800-858-7269. Raise the transmission and align with the engine. If your wife was driving at higher speeds almost immediately after leaving the office this is perfectly normal.

Make sure you always carry transmission fluid in the vehicle to prevent it from overheating. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-800-858-7269. If, for some reason, you're looking for a compact crossover with three pedals, this might be the best way to go. An automatic transmission switches between gears automatically and the driver does not have to do anything. Fill the torque converter with new transmission fluid. If it only happens when cold, it may not be your transmission. The problem may be as simple as your engine thermostat being stuck open.

Install and tighten the torque converter bolts. I have the same problem. The problem was eventually diagnosed properly and repaired through a Honda dealer, with the assistance of the Honda Tech Center in California. You can't drive without a working transmission. It also has a manual transmission. Push the transmission into the engine using the guide pins to line up. Obviously, not many people opted for the manual, and didn't offer it for too long -- but it was a good way to get the crossover's entry price down, and to improve fuel economy back in the days when manuals got better gas mileage than automatics.
This is so the engine will operate at higher rpms and thus warm up quicker. This is a from the last year of the car's first generation, and it's in surprisingly nice shape. We later learned that the problem was the torque converter failing to lock up, which it normally would do when the speed reaches some specific speed and not under acceleration. The car has about 105K miles, and has been very well cared for and is in overall excellent condition. Thanks all for the input.
Pull the torque converter out of the transmission housing and allow the fluid to drain. This problem occurs most frequently though not always on cooler days. It would take a long time as power would be greatly limited. It has not happened often enough that I feel I can take it to the shop. Includes: Return Cooler Bypass Filter,. This is a very long shot because I am not familiar with the Honda transmission set-up. Delivery date does not account for the required.
This may give you a point to work from. But that being said taking 2-3 miles is normal…8-10 miles is not. A Honda scan tool would provide a digital display of the coolant temp sensor output, accurate to one degree I expect. I did replace all three coolant sensors Including the one on the thermostat housing. If cars were built with only one gear, then it would be very difficult for them to accelerate from a dead stop.
So, this is disappointing to say the least. But, when weather was cold, the automatic transmission would seem to not go into top gear. This is an intermittent issue and the tranny shop does not know what the problem is. The same happens in reverse. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-800-858-7269.
The car is an automatic with front wheel drive only. The sensor was providing inaccurately lower than actual coolant temperature to the computer which manages these functions. All I hear is that these cars very rarely have transmission problems. Manual transmissions should last for the life of the car, unless the driver is inexperienced and rides the clutch too much. But on really cold days, that erroneous, 30 degree low reading would be enough to keep the computer from ever thinking that the car was fully warmed up. He or she does this by manipulating the clutch which is on the right of the driver in most manual transmission cars.
The manual is sometimes known as standard. The same sensing unit sends into to the temp gauge in the instrument cluster as well as the computer. Push the torque converter inward while rotating it into the transmission. What was finally found after more than a year of driving us crazy, was that the coolant temperature sensor which I believe is located at or very near the thermostat, at the thermostat housing was faulty. As they say, garbage in, garbage out.
