have u been taking care of it? regular fluid changes? not treating the car as if it were a race car?
Isn't it a racecar tho? :rolleyes


Seriously tho, flush the tranny and replace with Honda OEM ATF. Unless it's seriously bothering you and hindering your driving, then you don't need it rebuilt.

i had mine for about a month and half before my tranny went. it stopped in the middle of the road and i had to get it towed and rebuilt it. wasnt cheap either... so get it checked out by some place... the guy told me that their was nothing i could have done earlyer that would have made the gears not wear out.

hmm, another thing is that the tranny only slips on second gear, and only if im giving it a lil extra gas at the time. like it'll accelerate ok, but really slow like, if i don't give it some extra gas, but thats when it slips.
