what commonly goes wrong with these units fellas? I mean to say, when the transmission does go out, what are the common causes/failed parts, and solutions?
Short of carrying a spare transmission with me, can I stock a few key parts at home? My lxi has 202k on it, and it runs great, shifts great, just seeing an aweful lot of parts cars out there for $200 or so, and cant imagine it would be a bad bet to buy one for the transmission and a few other parts. You'd have to come out ahead, if you could do the work yourself, right? Ive wrenched on many things and am not intimidated by the accord. I love learning. just want to be prepared for when she does go out. no reason to suspect it yet.
