I would say check the clutch but it is a auto....

Best bet is drag it to a shop.

It is most likely going to be transmission related.

I swear transmissions are the hardest things to fix unless you know what you are doing.

 

Sorry to hear that car is broken.

they are very complicated inside. somewhat. it shouldnt hurt your tranny dude to do what you did. did your engine light come on? if reverse still works , thats a good sign. i doubt the tranny is fuked totally.

Yes just recently my truck's transmission took a sh*t. You should thank God that your repair bill is nowhere near what mine is.

 

2100 for rebuild, 1900 for new tranny plus cost of labor/parts to put in.

 

Wanna' know why?

 

My forward clutch bands welded together, (dunno HOW..truck has a tranny cooler and was full of transmission fluid at the time) thus locking it in drive. When it's in park, it's in drive. When it's in neutral or reverse, it's STILL in drive..

 

Yea.. if I were you I MIGHT get a second opinion.

well to be honest, my engine light was already on and my car was due for an oil change, i know im a frackin idiot but im 18 yyears old and living off a PART time job of $8/hour so i cant do everything i effin want :(

 

Yeah, but you should do the important things...like, changing the oil, getting cel checked out, shifting..lol.. i know your pain, im 21 living of $6.25/hr...working at most 23 hours a week...

so i found a solution for this and my money problem, ive decided to take out a loan that i wouldve sold on a transmission, and buy a WHOLE other prelude with a good condition trans and get one of my friends who is a mechanic to replace the trans, so now i have even more spare parts :D

You'll make more than that doing manual labor.

ok, new plan...this is definate too because its already in progress lol...the old shop was gonna charge $3492.77 for used trans (82,000 miles), install, materials, etc. the whole 9. BUT no warranty at all....sooo i found a transmission shop thats gonna rebuild my entire transmission, install and everything for $2000, and a 12000 mile/12 month warranty :)

yeah, but manual labor(which i have done every kind possible for about 2 years now) isnt flexible enough with my schedual.. right now its not a bid deal being that b/c i cant drive i have no wany to get to school and therefore and not currently enrolled..but i got the job when i was in school, and they woudl always give me the days i needed off.. not to mention, when i get my license back, im going to be delivering again.. which means i shoul dbe back to making around $200 a week in tips.. bring me to about 2g a month.. not too bad considering most of it the gov. wont be able to touch..

 

 

and i may be a little late with the idea, being that your plan is already under way.. but why not just hit a junk yard, find a decent milage wreck, and pull the trans, and replace it? seems to me liek you would save a LOT of money that way..
