ALright, my car is in trouble. I had noticed it was downshifting by itself and asked my friend who had a shop to check it out for me.
He told me that the problem was internal in the transmission and that I needed to replace the tranny. He told me he could get me a used tranny for 555 dollars and he would install it for 200 dollars.

I need to know if you guys think it's a good price to fix the problem. Also, he told me that I needed to replace the throttle body because it wasn't working correctly.( My car has a funny idle).:confused:

My car goes, ( rmmmm....rrmmmm...rrrmmm....rmmmm). You get the picture. I don't know how else to describe it. But when I disconnect the connector on the throttle body it stops doing it.

it sounds like a throttle position sensor ( yea the sensor on the throttle body) you can drill it out and peplace it with a used one from a wrecking yard the majority if hondas have the same exact part....... if its not that part it could be your idel control valve........ first look for leaking hoses

Alright I Checked the Throttle position sensor, when I disconnected it, my car was idleing fine, but when I connected it again it started to idle all funny again. So, does this mean the throttle body is ok. The throttle position sensor is the only thing that is messed up. Or should I replace the whole throttle body.

thanks for the help.

I'm no expert, but if you say that the idle is ok with the sensor unplugged and not when it's plugged in, then I would say replace the sensor. The throttle body is probably ok.

I don't know why your throttle body would be damaged, unless you've really made some major mods, or have really been thrashing the car a lot.

You could replace it with an upgraded one, but that's spending more money and it's not really needed unless you're having problems with fuel ratios because of mods like NOS.
