Default What do they do? when they say the car needs a transmission over haul.?

My car ( 1999 Honda, Accord, EX, 4 cyl.) transmission makes a noise when it is in P or Neutral position, when in D or other position it does not. I went to a transmission guy he told me the car needs a transmission over haul. What can be the problem, any guess as to how much does it cost & for how long will the transmission work after the over haul? My car has 1,07,000 mi. on it.

When they overhaul, they rebuild it. If they are any good, it will be almost as good as new. Get a second opinion. There are alot of places that tell you something that isn't true just to get your money.

sounds like the notoroious honda tranny problem found you finally.there's a design flaw with the honda automatic tranny that doesn't allow enough fluid to get to the top of the gears. honda does 2 things, first they take a picture of the gear and send it to Honda themselves for an answer, either they will have the dealer install an extra oil line to force oil onto the gear, or replace the tranny.I would call honda first and see if you have options, but with 107k miles, I doubt it. an overhaul is a complete rebuild of the transmission. you get new seals, bands, rings, pump, etc.. it's costly. it might be more cost effective to see about a used tranny instead.

It would be cheaper to find an inexpensive mechanic and have him replace it with a used low mileage transmission from a wrecking yard. Do get a second opinion first.

The problem is old age an use. The problem can be fixed just as your mechanic indicated, a transmission overhaul. The cost can vary widely, but I would call AAmco first to get a price quote. Assuming the transmission is the only problem, the car should work fine afterwords.
