Transmission Solenoids Or Bad Tranny 2005 Honda Accord

Asked by: 4 views Transmission question

I have a 2005 Honda Accord V6 3.0L. Out of no where it will not engage the gears properly like hesitation going from 1-2 2-3 and as I was getting home and the car got hotter it would not catch gears and it would feel like it was on nutral when I pushed on the gas or it wouldn’t go into reverse as well. I would need to park the car turn it off and then turn it on to let the gears catch again and upon switching into drive there is a feeling that you can tell that the gear went into place and it will let you drive and push on the gas to get going again but if I slow down at any moment I have to restart the process. If I let the car cool down it will work for about 10 min with only hesitation switching gears. so I reached out for help And got a mechanic who drained out about 5 quarts of transmission oil and found no silver oil or metal pieces on it. So he replaced 28500-P6H-013 B solenoid that had no click with a used one he had. He also cleaned out the linear solenoid 28250-P6H-024 and it got the car going again but failed on me again two weeks after.  So I changed two solenoids on it now 28500-P6H-013 B and 28400-P6H-013 A from the dealer and it didn’t bring the car back to how it was. But there is also another set of shift solenoids as I mentioned previously under the transmission and are  different from the ones I was able to replace on top of the transmission and reachable. So my thought is now is if I should change the Linear solenoid 28250-P6H-024 as well with the other two shift solenoids to see if this is the final solution before I think of getting a new transmission and since it was fixed for two weeks and then I’m having the same issues again I’m not too sure if the tranny is really out. The gears reverse still now with the two solenoids I put in that’s the only difference now when the oil gets hot I assume it allows me too reverse now  but not catch the gears only at times does reverse take a bit to engage But it moves back none the less.

    Did you get any trouble codes in the first place? If you got trouble codes, please post them. Transmission control modules are pretty smart and can often figure out what’s the problem. Normally, I read the trouble codes the first thing I do to get any information. If there are codes, check what the code means and troubleshoot after that. If there are no codes, I do normally replace the transmission fluid and reset the transmission adaption and drive for a while and then replace the fluid one more time. You can also do a flush if the transmission is not getting better by that, deeper diagnostics have to take place. But if you haven’t, read the trouble codes and post them if you got any.
