In first gear, my 2000 si wont switch over, it just started this yesterday, second third fourth and fifth are fine but in first gear, no vtec. I havent found out for sure whether fifth is ok but I dont need that bad of a ticket right now. It has 130,000 miles on it and 4000 on the current oil change but I use full synthetic. I know thats alot of miles but for about a year I drove from Cherry Point to Winston Salem every weekend. Any help would be great.

you broke your si.......
well, maybe not but you might consider seeking aid from a Honda mechanic. 130k miles is quite a few.
best of luck with that.

He's talking about the number of miles he put on in a short amount of time. Seems like hes driving 26k miles per year. Which is a lot! Your friend, in comparison, is only driving around 15-16k miles per year.
