Is sounds like you might have to change the transmission fluid, becaues most honda up to i think 2000, dont have a transmission filter,
it not hard to change the drain bolt is behind the paeeanger side front tire

#1718 of 2107 fuel guage faulty?
Oct 21, 2009 (6:41 pm)
I see fuel gauge issues as well. When I add half tank or more of gas, I've noticed the near empty fuel light go on even though plenty of gas is there. Six months ago the light would to go on when I was near empty.
What's going on with my fuel gauage? Any clue?

#1721 of 2107 A tip for those with apparent TCM problems - Check G301
Oct 22, 2009 (5:38 pm)
We all know that these Accords had TCM's which were prone to failure (usually from up to 5 capacitors leaking and 2 particular resistors frying). This is why the D4 (or S in some models) lights would flash. I had fought the same problem with mine (as well as a screwy windshield wiper situation).
After spending money on a new VSS and several junkyard TCMs (without solving anything) I did some research on the wiring of these cars and found that the only common element between my problems was one of the grounding connections - G301. G301 is a body ground located behind the windshield washer bottle. I took out the bottle and dismantled, cleaned and tightened the connections inside the G301 ground and found that ALL of my problems with this car were solved.
This is worth checking for anyone who is having multiple electical problems or a VSS fault with this car.

this bottle is where we add the wiper fluid correct? And when you say behind, is it toward head lights or engine block? My bottle on a 93 Accord is at front right corner side.
What exactly am I lookng for? I want to do this correctly. Thanks
#1724 of 2107 TCM dilema on my 93 Accord.

Called an few mechanics and it's frustrating to hear them say, "Sounds like a tranny problem." I know it's not my tranny because when I temporarily reset TCM fuse, my car drives and shifts great for a short period of time.
Please help, I want to keep my car.
