Default 2002 Honda Civic EX engline light po730?

So I bought a 2002 Honda Civic EX auto transmission last week and at first it worked great, but after I got my smog done (it passed) my transmission started to be more jerky and the first gear just started sounding terrible and just jumping... if I start in the second gear it starts up fine and then I just have to switch to drive when i hit 25-30 mph. The only thing I really found was the transmission dipstick was not in its hole correctly and its a bit lose so we tighten it in with a ziptie and it stays in now and it drives a lot more smoother but the check engine light still came on eventually. Can anyone help me? is it the transmission or what?

I always say never go by the brand of car alone. Always check everything out before you buy. Honda's built around that time are notorious for transmission problems.

I know Honda did extend the warranty for some models but you have to call Honda to see about yours. The dealer most likely knows what is going on with your transmission but the cost will be high. Getting a warrantied used tranny maybe the way to go
