Default Honda Accord 2002 Gear Delay more than 3-4 sec?

I own Honda accord 2002 model, and recently like from week back its showing gear delay in moving my car when i shift from N to D4. It never used to be like this. Its response time was abt 1 sec and now its about 3-4 sec. Is there is anything wrong with Gear box or time to change gear oil, Which i have changed approx 15000 km back. I only use original Honda gear oil and all original specification lubes and parts, and i am very sober driver. Can somebody help me with this. Thanks.

the delay is abnormal. The two most likely causes are 1) that the transmission unit is low on hydraulic oil or 2) that there is a sticking control valve in the transission. I have to assume from your post that the delayed engagement is the only issue and that once engaged that the transmission operates properly. If thats not the case and you have slippage between gearshifts then you would expect to find internal damage. If the shift quality has not changed, then you approach it from the point of 'what has changed' to cause the delayed engagement. typically when transmissions leak oil they will do so slowly to a point where there is marginal oil pressure. Oil pressure is what locks the various internal components of a transmission in place to give you the different gears. Transmission fluid expands greatly with temperature so that a condition that occurs cold will usually go away as the 'transmission builds up pressure'. That pressure gain is through the expanding fluid. So then, thats the long way of saying check the fluid level and check for leaks.If the transmission fluid level and condition are okay, have a transmission pressure test done by a reputable shop. That will quickly spot any signs of internal damage.Lastly, you didn't mention the mileage on the vehicle. The factory fluid should be flushed out and replaced at 100,000 miles. As the condition could be caused by a sticking hydraulic valve that gets hung up on the accumulated varnishes in the transmission, a transmission flush will clean out all the goo and restore the operation without investing a lot of money. and, that flush really is the only way to get all of the fluid out of the transmission to change it all.I think you'll find the fluid or fluid level to be reponsible for the conditionhope that helps
