it has the auto tranny and when im at a stop and take off i have to take my foot off the gas and let the car shift into second otherwise it feels like it voiently slams into second. i love the car its the std legend but i bought it from an old guy 2years ago for 1700 dollars at the time it only had 90,000 miles been a great car
1)Change ur tranny fluid. Spend the $140 or so at jiffy lube and see if that doesn't fix ur tranny issue.
2)If it doesn't, get it fixed with what it needs and keep it as a second weekend car.
3)Get the truck of your dreams.
4)Sell the galant to help pay for truck/Legend Repair.
Replace the rear transmission mount, have the transmission pan dropped and cleaned, have the screen cleaned (or replaced but it's not necessary), fill with fresh HONDA fluid (yes, from your dealer.)
Don't have Jiffy Lube do it - have a reliable independant mechanic or your dealer do it ($150 for a transmission flush from Jiffy Lube is freaking robbery... I've had mechanics do it for less than half of that!)
i already flushed the tranny changed the filter cleaned the magnet. never thought about the tranny mount. Has n e 1 ever had a tranny mount go bad??
As for the truck my girl has been on my ass about mariage so i told er to buy me an esclade an its on! shes workin on the loan rite now lol i figured id sell the legend and buy rims IM LOST I love the acura but i do love my girl and wouldnt mind an esclade
