Default Do all transmission problems require a rebuild?

I have a 2002 Honda accord SE an I was told my transmission was slipping. Does this mean I need a rebuild or can it be fixed?

They do if you ask Aamco.

Assuming the fluid isn't too low on yours, a rebuild is probably in order. You can just fix the problem, but with removal, disassembly and replacement you'll be spending almost as much as putting a factory rebuilt unit in. And a fixed transmission will still be an old, worn transmission that could fail again somewhere else.

It probably means you need a transmission oil change. That should fix it.

Also, there was a recall on Accord Transmissions from 1998-2002 Honda Accord's. Honda should replace the transmission for free if you ever have problems with it. My mother had her transmission replaced for free as part of the recall.
