Default Honda accord transmission problems?

i have a 1991 honda accord lx automatic. I recently went to my moms house and parked the car on a steep hill as if i were driving up the hill. Well Wehn i came back out to the car the little sports light on the dash was flashing at me. The manual says that i have a transmission problem when it does that. Well i lost 1st and 3rd gear. It goes straight to 2nd gear totally skips 3rd and goes right into 4th. Even if i put the car in 3rd or 1st my self it goes to 2nd or 4th. After parking the car on a flat surface for a couple of hours the gears worked again then light stopped flashing. But i loose the gears if i park on an incline at all. Could this be a transmission filter, Belts in the transmission going bad ( do they have belts) or its my transmission just burned? Please help!!!!!

Chances are... the transmission has never been serviced. If the fluid is a slightly low it can cause problems like shifting into wrong gears, slipping, and/or not shifting at all. I dont think it is very expensive to have a new filter put in and have the fluids changed. Which should take care of the problem.

If you service the transmission, contrary to the other poster, perhaps the fluid level was low when the car was parked on the hill. If the transmission has acted normally since this incident, I wouldn't worry but take it to a mechanic just to be on safe side.
