    Exclamation Honda City Auto Transmission Issue

    Dear All fellow members:

    Recently I am facing some problem in my Honda City Vario 2004.

    The issue started few days ago when car started to give severe jerks during pick up.

    I thought the car needs some tuning and service.

    But yesterday something strange happened with the car. After starting the car I changed the gear to drive mode but the car didn't move and same thing happened also on reverse mode. I switched off the car and started again but problem remains the same and switched it off. Then after some while i switched on the car again and changed its gear to drive mode it started to move. After running some distance, I got stuck in a traffic jam and changed the gear to neutral. When traffic started to move so I changed it to drive mode but again car didn't moved. So again I switched off the car and started again and everything gone good except for the jerk.

    Then today I went to Honda Drive In showroom for the car's tunning. I ask them to do car's tunning and told them about the jerk but not about the gear problem.

    After doing the work they told me that there is some problem in car's gear. They told me about parts that need to be change to resolve the issue.

    Replacement of Valve body
    Engine Pressure Tune Up
    ICM

    Just need to know how much will it cost because according to Honda it will cost around 60k.
    And should i get it done from them or from outside.

    Regards

    the estimated price by Honda for work is right. Try not to forget to ask what will be warranty for the job done by your shop. - when done ask them for parts they replaced because you will be paying for NEW parts & old ones are your property.

    a street side shop will instantly offer you a yard transmission swap for 50000+ with no guarantees., at least HONDA will accept responsibility for the job. try to negotiate a bit & Go for Honda shop

    The start clutch is either worn out or the control pressure to it is lost. The valve body solenoid pack is on top of the transmission and is easily accessible, the hydraulic valve body is in the transmission and is a pain to remove and install.

    When redoing any Honda transmission internal valve body - it is more than critical to use a torque ratchet to tighten the screws - One slight overtightening can cause sticking.

    Your car should be fully tested first and a breakdown of exact service repair provided before you sign the agreement to repair the car (its standard practice) - the sentence of "gear me pirablum hai" is not valid.

    i may not accept Honda as Legendary car manufacturer I avoid being even a passanger in a any 4 wheels made by Honda but I got work done for the identical problem for an identical model of car from Honda drive-in in October 2013 insisted upon warranty and got for 3000 kms for problem & parts fixed ' under job no xxxx dated xxxx. paid net total 58450 including parts lubes & taxes. - for which another side street workshop suggested a swap for 49000 Plus lubes & labour.

    I have seen quite a few of the old double wishbone Hondas suddenly lose a wheel, its mostly due to extreme worn out ball joints which let go and the wheel buckles. The rear swan neck is also supported by a ball joint in old Honda and there is supposed to be a dust cover on the castle nut to prevent rusting and corrossion, Its boot is equally important to keep in good shape otherwise the ball joint failure time comes too soon.

    You already know what sort of rubber is used in locally made ball joint boots and also what sort of repair is carried out - they hammer the old ball so it becomes tighter in the socket - lol - its a loading part and is a safety critical item.

    Honda used to make good cars, they were meant for driving - nowadays they are terminally boring, I drove a civic from Houston to New York and wanted to set the car on fire - its boring to the point of losing your mind, it wallows like a pig in mud and has a seating position which I can only explain as "sit up and beg"

    Its noise supression was also "missed in production" or the QA inspector was sleeping on duty or maybe thats how they make them now.

    The older civics/integras and accords/preludes were a really good car to drive.

    @Xulfiqar bhai did 8th gen Civic also share the same automatic design like 7th gen civic which needed to be dismantled before servicing or change of filter ?
