2000 civic LX automatic...in gear and then neutralized

\015 Yesterday I noticed a slight whine in the engine and then the whine stopped and although the car was in still in D, no power when pressing on the accelerator. The car was still running. I put the car in park, turned it off for a moment, back on and back in gear. Whine was present again although it was in gear, when the whine disappeared car again neutralized. Transmission fluid at good level, good color and does not smell burnt. I know the transmission filter is inside the transmission so I cannot check it. Could it just be the TC clutch is fowling from debris or do you think it is something more? I had heard that Honda was extending warrenty on certain models with specific VINs because of reoccurring trans issues. I would not qualify for that nor any "goodwill" from Honda as my VIN was not within the specified range. Needless to say I am struggling finacially, so I am looking at the most cost effective solution. Your thoughts? Any ideas on how much I should be expecting to pay?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

I have a 2000 Honda Civic, when the car is in Highway running, the car wont heat up. But after that if I get stuck in traffic for 10-15 minutes, the car heats up. It is interesting, if at this time I put the gear into Park or Neutral and press on gas to increase the RPM, the coolant temperature gauge comes down fast. Any comment would be highly appreciated.

I have a 2001 Civic and the temp gauge and tachnometer both do not work. The car doesn't want to turn on and feels like it wants to stall out when starting it in neutral unless I keep pumping the gas. While driving, I need to shift gears at probably 2000 rpm for the car to even move because it will choke up and feel like its about to stall. Although it might not stall out while driving, even when flooring the gas after it chokes up the car won't move unless I shift. I'm having to shift every 5 s

I have a 95 Honda civic and I was driving on the freeway went to get off and right when I was down shifting it wouldn't move out of neutral even though the stick was in the second gear position. So I pulled over turned the car off and when I turned it back on as soon as I let go of the key it would stall. So I had it towed home, I replaced the ignition switch, distributor cap, spark plugs, fuel filter, I checked all the fuses in the car and under the hood and I replaced the main relay, now the b

Got on E-Bay a cheap 1987 Honda Civic CRX w/5speed Manual Transmission....Car runs great except when you drive down the road no matter what gear you are in a loud grinding noise comes from what I have been able to determine is either the transaxle, or the axles. It is definitely not the brakes because when you apply them the noise does not go away...and the brake pedal feels strong not mushy.... The noise continues even when you put the transmission in neutral and shut off the engine. The axles

2003 Dodge Neon Sxt standard transmission runs great but recently has started suddenly trying to die. I will be cruising in 5th gear and feel a sudden jolt and look down to see my gauges all fall to 0 before returning to where they were and I'm cruising again. Sometimes this will happen when I am in neutral and the car will die but starts back up no problem and runs fine. It doesn't happen often but it seems to be progressing.

I have a 2005 Honda Civic, 30,000 miles, idling problems when in first or neutral. Idles randomly too fast, has been checked by mechanic and he could not find the problem, said there is no sticking.

Gear shifter problem. Transmission seems fine...I can't get the gear shift to shift back into park or reverse. It will shift from neutral thru the low gears( but its like something has either wore out or has broken, because it will slide over gear positions), but will not back into reverse or park. I took the pannel off of the top of the steering wheel, and I noticed that when it is in neutral (neutral on the instrument pannel and tranmisson in neutral), its actually in what should be the par

Once it happened whilst the gear was in the first and then wanted to neutral the gear was hard to neutral. After pressing the clutch two, three times it worked.. What is the reason? Is it a clutch problem and hydraulic ? Would appreciate your comment.

My 2001 kia rio automatic transmission appears to run as if is in neutral when placed into every gear. The linkage has been observed and appears to be connected and in working order and the transmission fluid has no shavings which indicates possible internal gearing problems. There is also no noise that came from the transmission it was driving fine and placed into park when pulling on the side of the road then when put back into drive it now runs as if it is in neutral for all gears.

Going up hill to my house and around an S turn, the transmission suddenly failed. it was in drive, but was acting like it was in neutral. It hasn't been able to go into drive at all since then, and park is the ONLY gear that will work. the shifter will go into all of the other gears, D,R,N,1,2... but while in any gear will act like it is in neutral. I am trying to figure out what the problem is exactly, so I can fix it.

I cannot shift my 98 Sable out of park into a gear after it starts, if I turn the engine off then turn the key to on (not engaging the starter) the gear shift can be moved to neutral then the engine starts and I can shift to any gear. If I choose park I need to turn the car off and go through this process to get the car in neutral again. It sounds like an eletrical connection but where?
