How many times have you changed the trans fluid? A relatively large part of the late model automatic trans problems are caused by adding the wrong spec ATF for make up, adding additives and running the fluid just a little to long. The local trans shop advocates band adj at 30k ( he expects them to show by 60k :) ). Full load for a dry trans is nearly 3 gallon and you get about1 gallon out of the pan when adjusting the rear band so a full change would be 4-5 gallon of +4 ATF mixing well between gallons. Honda advocates 4 changes when the trans fluid is mixed with non Honda rated fluid, same situation - no drain for the converter.Might take notes and ask for spelling on the cause of the problem :)keydl
