Mechanic in a bottle


#1

Have a 96 Civic that doesn’t shift smoothly between 1st and 2nd. This is the second transmission with ~ 100K miles logged. Anyone had any luck with transmission additives that claim some improvement? I know its a stretch but wanted to see opinions if it even worth trying.


#2

Automatic or manual transmission?


#3

What was the problem with the first transmission?


#4

When was the last time the transmission fluid was changed? If never, that would be a good reason.


#5

Civic has 235K miles and I replaced the first automatic transmission at 142K. It was having problems shifting between 1st and 2nd as well. Transmission fluid is changed regularly with the last time at 220K.
