Default 99 honda civic wont shift from 2nd to 3rd?

I have a 99 Honda Civic VP and it drives until its time to shift from 2nd to 3rd and will High-Rev.

It is an automatic transmission. also i am looking for a aftermarket import shop for repair.

I would start off really easy and do a full transmission fluid change, if it hasn't been done in 14 years, its definitely going to need it. I believe every 60k or 80k miles, it should be flushed. If that doesn't fix the problem then I would bring it to the professionals to check out. If it's something as simple as a fluid change, it will be an easy fix. Hope all goes well and stays cheap! :-)

when you shift to D and engaged the 1st gear, give extra push on the gas. you should hear a clucking sound. if you can hear the sound, the transmission shifts normally until you shift to N or R.

until recently, i change transmission oil seal and flywheel oilseal the problem ceased. don't know if the dismantlement or the oilseals solved the problem. either way, you need to take down your gearbox.
