The slushbox, i mean automatic transmission is controlled by the computer so id say see if its throwing any codes.

try reseting your computer by disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes then take it out and run it HARD for 20 minutes and see if anything changes.

would it work too if i took out the ECU fuse under the hood nad let it sit for 10 minutes then put it back and started it up and ran it hard? would that be the same thing? cuz it would be re-setting the ECU right?

same idea but your complicating something simple by searching out fuses, The ecu fuse in an accord is REALLY sensitive. The smallest short will blow it. I tend to keep my paws off the ecu fuse and stick with the battery cables. Its more acessible and less risky. you cant blow fuses if there is no power.

You'll know if you blow it because your speedometer will stop working and your dash will light up like a christmas tree.

your not redlining at 4500 the red line is an arbitrary point on the tach. Unless your hiting a limiter your just shifting low.

most auto's wont shift very high.. if you want to shift at the red line you could try seeing how high it will let you go by putting your auto in first winding it up then clicking to second.

Good luck man

Might be a governor! Why are you reving that high?
there is no way that the governor is kicking in every gear, its the ecu that has a problem. Reseting it wont help either, he needs a new one. What kind of question is "why are you reving that high?" If he wants to let him rev.

That’s a lot of stress on you engine and it doesn’t have to be a high RPM. I was reving my old car an 89’ civic and the head gas blew!

ive noticed that it seems like the car starts to lose power/pull at around 5k anyways, so i guess i dont need it to go further than that, cuz once its get to 5 its not pulling its just like revving really hard, and i kinda let off hte gas a little so it can shift(does anyone else have to do that?)

at 5000 my goodness something is wrong. on the f22b1 thats about where you should be making peak torque. get your engine checked 'cuz thats not right.

there's really no point in being that high on the rpms. you don't go faster up there. it's basically a waste of gas. oh and most older oem tachs get really inaccurate.
