Default 2003 EX V6 Transmission concerns

Hello All



Hoping to get some opinions on something that troubles me about my car's
behavior .



It's a 2003 Accord EX V6 Automatic. It's been through the transmission
recall repair on the 2nd gear on 12/11/04 (reason for recall - the gear didn't
get enough lubrication and was prone to breakage and seizing) where they
installed an oil jet kit to provide extra lubrication for the 2nd gear.



Driving in usual 'light to light' suburban traffic, I started noticing a
rather jerky shift from 1st to 2nd. Usually it happens when I am stuck
behind somebody in traffic, and can't rapidly accelerate, so this specific
shift occurs around 2,000 RPMs. Seems like my not applying more gas, creates
an 'unclean' shift that causes the car to kinda jerk and leap forward a bit
as shifting occurs. When I am able to accelerate more rapidly, shifting is
smoother. I also noticed that this is more symptomatic in cold weather when
the car has been sitting out for a while. If the car ran for a while and is
warmed up, it doesn't seem to happen. Level of transmission fluid is as it
should be.



I don't remember this being the case when I originally got this car almost 2
yrs ago. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by how smooth the shifting was
compared to my 1995 Accord LX V6 which I replaced with the car in question.
It had 17k miles on it at the time of recall repair and when I asked the
service advisor if required inspection of the gear revealed any damage, he
didn't answer my question directly, but rather said it's only a problem on
cars with 70-80k miles and with mine it's more of a preventive measure.



Maybe it's my perception, but I think the jerky shift began after the recall
work. Chicago's cold temperature also seems to be a factor, but I am fairly
certain it hasn't happened in previous 2 winters.



Before I go back to the dealer and ask them to check it out, I wanted to get
some feedback from the experts in the group and see if anyone noticed
anything similar or can give me some advice on what to try or what to arm
myself with against what dealer might call 'normal' behavior.



Any feedback is much appreciated.



Thank you,


Sergey

My '01 TL behaved like that until the transmission failed with a burned
clutch pack at 48,000 kms (30K miles). Wasn't your warranty extended to 7
years or 100K miles?

Ghislain: not that I am aware of. That would be nice though.

And sorry, I meant to say the recall work was done on 11/11/2004.

My wife's low mileage (18,000 at time of recall) '03 V-6 displays the exact
symptoms you describe after the recall work. Before that I thought this was
an amazingly smooth transmission. Not any more. A co-worker hasn't taken
his in for the recall because of the experience with my wife's. We need to
take it back to the dealer, but the inconvenience of doing so has caused us
to procrastinate.

Not directly. I did try Googling it. The only thing I found about warranty
extension is this

http://www.roadandtravel.com/newswor...dawarranty.htm

which my car doesn't fall under.

My '00 TL also started doing this after the 2nd gear recall work. Resetting
the transmission computer smoothed it back out. Look for a 7.5 amp fuse
labeled "backup" and pull it for 10 seconds. It clears the learned behavior
from the computer and it starts fresh. On the '00 TL the fuse is in the
passenger side in-car fuse block. On some other models it is in the
under-hood fuse block. I don't know where you will find it on the '03, but
it won't hurt anything to give it a try.

Interesting idea. Thanks!

Though before I do that, any clue what else will be "forgotten" with removal
and placing back of that fuse?
