Air in the cooling system is number one. Since it's a '91 you may have
to search a bit, but start by filling the reservoir to the =MAX= mark
and do it again the next morning. You'll see it 'drinks' some overnight
as the system displaces the air. The final 'bleed' of the air is at
www.tegger.com , I expect. When you're done, the coolant will stay at
MAX all the time.

no its no lights flashing it just takes a long time to shift i would have
to drive it for at least 20 mins. before it switches over to 3rd gear
do u think it could b a tempature censor or some said the Modulator Valve
could have gone bad

What did you find when you looked inside the coolant reservoir?

Does the problem ONLY occur going into 3rd?

Are ALL other shifts (including lockup) OK?

What did you find when you topped up the coolant reservoir? Was it
almost empty and was it part ways empty the next day?

Shift Control Solenoid B is sticking, or 2-3 shift valve is sticking.

Have a garage check to see that Solenoid B is actually receiving control
current from the TCM.

Have the fluid drained and filled at least three times as prescribed in the
manual. It's best to use genuine Honda ATF-Z1 fluid, but standard Dexron-
III is OK.

If your tranny has been neglected enough to have sticking solenoids and
valves, a fluid change may not help. You're not supposed to do a "flush" on
Honda trannies, but in your case this MAY be all that will help, provided
they exercise all the valves and solenoids during the course of the flush.
