Having problems with your 1989 Honda Civic ?

The transmission will not shift to second gear on its own you can do in manualy

This will most likely involve the transmission governor not "seeing" the pressure from the torque converter, therefore not knowing that it needs to shift. Unless you have the tools and expertise to do this job, I would take it to a transmission shop for further diagnostics and repair. Best regards, Marvin
Maybe. You cannot force a automatic transmission to shift from first to second. You can force a automatic transmission to shift from third to second. HOWEVER, if the speed is high, you have a excellent chance of causing massive damage to engine and transmission.

\015\012It occurs to me that this is not really the nature of your question. In answer to your unasked question I say, your transmission is telling you it needs some professional attention. You can check the transmission fluid for proper level (NEVER NEVER NEVER OVERFILL A AUTO TRANS) and you can smell to see if it is burned. If it is burned or not bright pink, it needs changed.
