RPM revs high when car shifts


Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 Honda Accord LX Automatic with 53000 miles on it. It also burns oil i guess because there is no oil stains anywhere i go and i have to check the oil once every other week to make sure it is full. I've had to put at least 5qt's of oil in the engine every 6 weeks. Now onto the reving problem. When driving and the car goes to shift it will rev up about 300-600 rpms before it shifts and when it does shift it slams into gear jerking the car and making a loud noise. I took it to honda and they couldnt figure out the oil problem and told me the shifting problem was the V-TEC sensor. I had that replaced for about 500$ and it didn't do anything with shifting but boosted my gas mileage a little bit. Does anyone have an idea of what the problem could be?

Thanks, Eric
