Default 1998 Honda Accord V6 V-Tech?

Hi I have a honda accord and every time i drive the transmission pulls first it pulls slowly than its starts pull harder and the more i drive the hard it pulls and loses pick up i checked with few mechanics and the said the gear is locked but this only happens when im driving in D4 or D3 but when i drive in 2 it drives smooth and no pulls at all i was wondering thats the problem is it the transmission or something else PLEASE HELP ME its my first car and i dont know much about cars and i just brought it from a dealer and its acting up THANKS

Take it back to the place you bought it and tell them to fix it for free, give you your money back, or another car or you'll report them to the Better Business Bureau for selling you a lemon. You're tranny's done.

And it's VTEC..tell your friends. V-Tech is a phone or baby monitor.

Well sounds like you may have a small problem. First of all what's happening is that the transmission control unit will go into what is referred to as limp mode and what that means is the transmission control unit has lost a key communication with the transmission with the transmission control unit and has stopped trying to control the transmission and has defaulted into 3rd gear just to get you home. You will be able to manual shift the transmission but you won't be able to get past 3rd gear. You need to take the car to the shop and have them check the car for transmission codes. It could be something simple like a bad speed sensor but I do not advise driving the car because you may cause other problems. Good luck I hope I was helpful
