Default Honda, 1998 automatic Transmission???

My car seemed to slip a gear from 4th to 3rd and revved high without
catching. I put it into manual mode and tried to change back to 4th,
it did but seemed to slip back to 3rd again. It seems like the gears
aren’t catching completely cause there’s a little bit of momentum but
won’t go over 50km/h. I made it home but it did this continually for
more than 3km. It idled fine at a red light, but as soon as I took off
it started doing it again in all the gears. what could it be??

you may not have a 4th anymore... my transmission (87 civic) did something
similar a couple years ago... it managed to get back to the shop after a
couple hours of 30kmh highway driving (so much fun)

upon further inspection... the gears had literally started to break out of
the transmission and were falling off of the car... which explains why i
couldn't get it into reverse... reverse was probably somewhere along the
highway

in hindsight... i probably should have had the transmission fluid checked
more often than i did (never) in the couple years i had the car before that

so i would suggest you take a slow drive to your favorite mechanic and check
it out before things get really expensive

Don't overlook the obvious. Start by checking the fluid level in the
transmission. If the fluid level is good, see if the fluid has a burnt
smell. May be indication of something worse. Changing the fluid prolly won't
restore it now though.
Initially it sounded as though you just lost fourth gear, possibly
clutch came apart and got debris in filter/fluid ports. This may have
eventually cut off the flow to other areas. Best bet is to roll it in or tow
it to a reputable shop and let them pressure test it. Yer prolly not gonna
be able to do anything yourself to restore it. IMHO, that is.

==========================

What model and what mileage? Have you ever changed the tranny fluid, and
what brand was used? If you wipe the dipstick on a sheet of clean paper,
what color is it? How does it smell?

It's possibly a sticking solenoid but you aren't giving us enough info.
Anything else we need to know (was the car ever in a flood)?
