Default 2002 TLS

Our 2002 TLS has suddenly started transmission probs. Slipping and bucking.
The D5 light flashes and the VSA lights steady as does the triangle with
the exclamation point. The sport shift becomes inoperable. Mileage is
33,750. No previous probs of any sort, fluid clean and full. Normal
operating temp.

Turn off and restart , all resets except a check engine light. Drive a very
little bit and it all repeats.

When it fails it seems to have a failsafe mode...car is drivable at lower
speeds sort of like it is maxed out in 3rd gear.

Anyway I just thought I would let you all know. Any thoughts out there?

I will post the outcome when the dealer lets me know.

There is a warranty extension on the 02 tl-s transmission (though you don't
actually need it, since its still in the basic warranty) because they fail
early. The 3rd gear clutch disintegrates and the pieces clog the fluid
passages causing the transmission to misbehave. They have been known to
slam into 2nd gear without warning at highway speeds. Be glad it didn't do
that. Your dealer will replace the transmission for free.

They are supposed to be doing that anyway (free loaner) whenever you bring
it in for warranty service - but make an appointment first so they know you
are coming.

I got a Acura MDX as a loaner for a few days while my dealer replaced
the tranny in my '02 TL-S.
