    Default Civic 98 VTI auto tranny mechanic

    Hi everyone,

    need advice on a A/T garage / mechanic.

    month back I purchased a used civic 98 vti with CNG, having the following issues with it

    1) gear change noise and bump:
    whenever I put the car in gear especially in R, there's this "Krrrr Krrr" sound. The transmission shift to D2 is not smooth, there's a slight jhatka as the gear gets in

    2) Gear Slippage:
    when I bought the car (didnt have earlier experience with A/T and checking etc.) it had a small problem, that when the car was cold, the gear wouldnt shift in D4 and D3, it would only get in gear in D2. After it got upto normal operating temperature of the car the tranmission was smooth

    recently I had the tranmission fluid drained and refilled with STP A/T transmission oil, earlier it was ABS

    after the oil change this problem has gotten worse, still the car wont get in gear on D4 / D3 most of the time but now sometimes when I slow down, and the car is in either in D4 / D3 it downshifts to neutral reagrdless of the car temperature (this wasnt happening before the oil change, I think the sound when putting in R has also increased with the oil change)

    sometimes when it downshifts to neutral, pressing and leaving the accelerator again gets it back in gear

    I just hope its not BIG work on the transmission, i just bought the car



    Anyway, need your help in analyzing the problem and identifying a good mechanic / garage for this work

    thankx

    You mention ----2) Gear Slippage:
    seems that Transmission Gears need some replacements. Just my observations
    wait for others to reply & get it checked with some Honda Workshop,
    SHIRT & TIE SHOP, GULSHAN-E-RAVI, Bedian Road Opp Askari 11....
