Default What are the signs that your transmission is going to fail?

I have a 98 Honda Accord, it runs ok, but has about 165,000 miles on it. Are there any clues or symptoms that this is about to happen? Things I should watch for? My trans fluid is clear so far.

There are only two signs. These are:1. Slipping clutches. If you're not any good at noticing what your car is doing, then you may not notice this. If it slips for 1 mile, it's ruined. It's not designed to survive that.2. The transmission fails to engage a gear that it's supposed to. So, if it's a 4-speed transmission, and it can't get above 2nd gear, then that would be a sign also. Sometimes this problem can be intermittent, and you might get a bit of a warning that way.
