It sounds like your tranny is going out. :( I doubt it's any sensors or anything like that. All you can do is give it an fulid change and add some transmedic. I had a similar problem on my 92 cvic lx... it started to jurk real bad then after a while it just would not catch 3th gear. I had to buy a new one, and is working fine ever since.
your torque converter might be rooted. I have driven a few 99 civic automatics and their shift smoothness wouldnt even be accepted in a 1940's mercedes-benz. They thump big time when stopping.
i see..this a student and im if it comes down to a new tranny...i might as well buy another d16z6 motor with a 5 speed...cause i burn oil pretty bad as well...pos..lets say i decide to do much..and how complicated will this swap be...thanks...peace
