Tranny problems, '93 accord
Got a question about transmissions for you guys. My mom bought a used truck because the transmission in her old car (a '93 accord) is on its way out. It occasionally has trouble starting and when shifting out of park and into gear it sometimes fails to engage properly and the "D4" gear icon on the dash starts flashing signifying so. You then have to shift back out of gear to park, wait a few moments and try shifting into gear again. These problems started probably about a month and a few weeks ago and only occur every once in a while. The mechanic told us the transmission is on its way out and needs to be rebuilt witch is gonna cost at least $1100. We have also been looking at the possibility of buying a used tranny from a junkyard and having it installed which would probably be cheaper. Just wondering if anyone has experience with transmission issues and what the best course of action would be. Also, is there anyway to know how much more life is in this transmission and what are some things we can do to extend its life? I'm about to start college and money is tight right now Thanks.
