Exclamation Help please! Engine rev high but no speed gain

Hi guys,

Yesterday I was driving and came to a stop and all of a sudden my 03-AV6 started to acting up. When I drive in first gear at local the rev goes up to 2-3k then shift into 2nd gear and after that when it speed hit up to 20-30 mph and rev goes to 2-3k again at 2nd gear the rev will shoot up and the speed won't increase. It feels like the car is in neutral that it revs but no increase in speed. Also I noticed that it takes forever to change from Reverse to Drive mode. I have to hear a click sound before the car will actually move, and the time gap between Reverse and Drive is pretty long...like 5-10 seconds. I have no idea what is going on. Anyone have this problem before please chip in.

Thanks

Sounds like your torque converter might be taking a shiz. Those are symptoms of low pressure as well. Check your fluid levels and see if the problem repeats in the same manner.

Your transmission is shot, sorry bud. That long change is a dead giveaway. One day it'll just crap out and lose all power while driving so fix this proactively.
You can try getting a cooler on it and a magnefine filter to prolong its life, but that's just hospice.

If the fluid level is full, then you likely having internal issues that will require a rebuild.

Yeah I noticed the fluid is enough so it definitely an internal issue. What I'm thinking right now is either have it rebuild or just swap a manual tranny. I'm having trouble finding the posts about the manual tranny swaps. Anyone know how much would it cost to swap in a manual tranny?

3-5k is what I've been able to get quotes for depending on what you already have and what the shop is willing to work out with you.

Alternatively another automatic is in the area towards triple digits.

03 V6??? Bad tranny. Sorry. Buy an used one that was taken off an 05 Accord. No reason to spend $3000. You could get it replaced for half the price.

Did you even read the post above you?
Also, 05 won't be any better except for that squirter TSB. Which will be on most 03s if theyre alive today anyway.

Actually, the 2005 V6 trannies are better.

Lower failure rate

Due to the transmissions not having miles put on them without the squirter.

It is. Do some statistical research.

Did you ever replace your atf? How were your driving conditions.

All cars will have a bad tranny here and there.

Lol, do some statistical research, lol....

Look at my post count... Im fairly knowledgeable on the 7th gen AV6. I did quite a few D&Rs on my transmissionS and I did my research...

I even made threads about it back when it was happening. My stories are documented somewhere on this site

Nice! I haven't looked at your profile. Not saying 2004-2005s are bulletproof, but 2003 was the worst and much more unreliable than 04-05.

No problem. Im just pretty sure that there were no mechanical differences. Even 06 (which mine was) and 07s had failures. As well as Acura TLs, Honda Pilots, Acura MDXs, etc.

I think there were slight revisions made in attempt to make the transmissions more durable but still nowhere near what they needed to be sadly. FnF you back for good though? I thought I saw a ghost when I saw you post your Nissan for sale haha.

Im not back for good yet. I have to see what route Im going to take yet. If I sell the Nissan though, there is a good chance I will be back in an AV6
