Default 97 Accord Transmission Grinding?

I just bought a 97 Accord SE with 210k on it. The engine itself runs great for its age, except the transmission. The shifter works smoothly but it seems to have a hard time switching gears while running. It makes a loud whining sound when it gets up to speed and after 40mph it always makes a loud grinding-like noise when shifting up to 50. I'm a little worried about it and I dont want to have to scrap this car, considering I just bought it and scrapped my 86 accord, after 3 months of not having any transportation. Any suggestions or things I can do to help?

Change the trans fluid. get some thicker weight fluid too. Should make the syncros last a little longer.

common problems with the accords are final drive bearings going bad with either the automatic or standard. which sounds like the problem you're having. the bad news is if it is then rebuilt trans in order no shop will just do the bearings since complete trans has to be taken apart to do this. yea can get one from j/yard but might be as bad or more miles then you have on the car now. find shop at ATRA.COM for road test
