when you had your tranny rebuilt, was it done correctly and with Acura parts or done on the cheap with aftermarket parts ?

how long ago was it rebuilt ?

do YOU shift the auto tranny ? (thats a no no, cause they aren't made to shift manually.)

how many miles on the new tranny ?

unless we have more info, we can't help you...

sadly, even the rebuilt transmissions eventually fail for the 2000-2003 models. best thing to do would be to save up for a 2006-2007 accord v6 transmission and swap that in. everything bolts right up and reliability was near 100%. this is what i've done with my 2002 TL and have had 0 problems since.

for now though, just make sure you are at proper level for fluid and try using sport shift to manually shift instead of D5 automatic. but don't expect to last very many more miles because as soon as the D5 starts flashing the transmission is toast.
