Automatic transmission issue / replacementHey guys, new here
I just picked up a 1991 honda civic EX automatic for $500
It has some issues but the biggest is its automatic transmission
It slips / can't get into 3rd gear what so ever
the 1-2 shift is fine
2-3 it will slip badly, basically its nearly in neutral ( it will move a little but i guess thats just the clutches rubbing together creating some sort of momentum ) and 3-4 is mostly fine
It can hold 4th gear without any problems, i drove it 2 hours home like that
Anywho i was planning on doing a drain and refill tomorrow with honda ATF and clean the solenoid but i have a feeling that the gear is too far gone and i need to just replace the transmission
What do you guys think?
Is the automatic transmission from a DX/LX the same ( or will it work? I don't care about the gear ratio, if its longer that would be better anyways since all i care about is gas mileage ) or would a transmission from a 92-95 civic work?
Thanks in advance.
