Default 1997 Honda Accord trasmission problem

Hello ,
I am new here so i will try to be as clear as possible . I just got a
honda accord as a present from my aunt . I dont know if its a real
problem . When i drive slow as if in slow moving traffic , and the car
shifts from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd and every time it shifts feels
like when the car is being accelarated and it shits fast althought you
only moving at 20 mph . When moving slow it shifts at 2700 rpm from
2nd to 3rd and when it does it give a hard pull like someone hit you
from behind .
Please advsie

Thank you

I'm sure you meant to say it 'shiFts fast' :-)

Honda trannies are not like most trannies, and have the odd habit of
slamming into a gear if you step on the gas while slowing to a stop.
Since you don't know all the service history, somebody may have put
non-Honda fluid in the tranny. (we don't know your mileage, BTW) It will
shift like a slamming door. Change it yourself (3-4 quarts), drive it a
few days, and do it again. Use only Honda Z1 ATF.

it has 99k miles . It doesnt slam when i step on gas while slowin . It
slams both way . If i start from 0 mph shits ok from 1st into 2nd but
to shift into 3rd gear it takes the engine to rev up to 2700 rpms then
it slams into 3rd . You could hear the engine is not normal to rev up
that high to change . I have dirven lots of cars and none was acting
this way .I just come back from 2 mechanics . One said everything is
fine an a motor mount could cause that push and the second claims that
it is some sort of pump within the transmission and is loosing presure
and to fix would be arounf $1,300 . I am lost .

Whatever you do, changing the ATF is a great idea for a vehicle of
unknown history. You can even take 4 quarts to MonkeyLube (or just book
it into Honda) and get them to change it. Ask them to show you the
magnetic drain plug BEFORE they wipe it off thoroughly. I like to let it
drain for several minutes, then start it and throw it into drive for ten
seconds to pump out a bunch more.

It should be changed twice to get the majority of the old stuff out. The
second change will tell you a lot because the drain plug will show how
much more stuff was in solution.

I agree with Curly, change the trans fluid and only use the Honda ATF Z-1
tranny fluid.
Also a worn front or rear motor mount can cause a hard shift and that is a
frequent cause of hard or banging shifts.
For the tranny to shift at 2700 RPM is not unusual, depending on your gas
pedal position or how hard or easy you accelerate. A Honda motor will rev
higher than most cars and do it safely. If your used to domestic cars and
this is your first Honda, you may see an extreme difference in engine speeds
in your everyday driving.
