Unhappy 2004 v6 Transmission dead - Too Soon??

Hello all!

I have a 2004 v6 ex automatic with 103000 on it. I am the original owner and although I have gotten on it from time to time i am generally a good easy driver.

Yesterday my transmission died and my honda is currently at the shop and will most likely need a new one. Do you think this is normal or do you think that this is an abnormal issue that I should take up with honda?

Thanks for the input!

jeff

You didn't mention anything about maintenance reguarding the transmission.

But to answer your question it's prob. not too soon if it wasn't maintained properly.

I have a 2005 exl v6 with 129k on it, I have done 3 transmission drain and fills, at various times....nothing I have kept track of, and my trans shifts, and acts the way I did when I drove it off the lot brand new..

I don't know what it is, but I really think this trans will make it to 200k plus.

Did yours slowly start to show signs, or give up right away?

Unfortunately, you are right on schedule! And maybe a little overdue!! The V6's don't all have tranny problems, but the failure range tends to be 80,000 to 100,000+ for those that do quit. (Mine quit at 83,000.)

Even saw one poor fellow who lost his at 43,000 miles. Now that would be close enough to warranty coverage to work a deal with Honda. You can expect a $3,500 bill from the stealer.

Be very, very sure that they replace the rear main seal on the engine while they are there, it's a $15 part that could easily fail at your mileage, and another major tear down to get to it will cost you $1,100 additional labor later. (Mine quit 10 months later at 93,000.) Very cheap insurance.

So what you're saying is you don't "love your 06vtecv6" anymore?

I still think the generation 7th>then8th though. How about you?

Was there a recall jet kit installed on your transmission? Not that it will prevent a failure, just wondering. My 03 V6 has 87k. I try not to abuse it, and keep the fluid fresh (change out 3 quarts every 15k miles). I'm in the process of switching over to the new DW-1 fluid. Hopefully it will help. The transmission works fine so far (knocking on wood).

03 EX V6 Sedan auto (NBP, then Ford Blue) - traded in after 13 years (135k miles)

I'm really liking the new DW-1 over the old ZF garbage. I've noticed my shifts are a little bit more firm and everything seems to be working great, but I've only got about 20k on this thing. I plan on doing a 3qt drain and fill every other oil change at 10k intervals, hopefully that will keep it alive, along with a new filter every 20k.

I found that this is an issue with the model and year..



It for about a week it seemed a bit strange but that could have just been me. Then the other morning i was getting on the interstate, pushed on the gas and got nothing but high RPM's. I took my foot off the pedal to let the engine catch up with the transmission as was able to get to work.. it failed on the way home, towed it the next day.

A local dealer wanted $3200 for an aftermarket transmission, installed with 3 year 36,000 mile warantee. I went with Aamco for $1500, they rebuild the one that i already have and i get the same 3yr 36,000.

That's a great price with Aamco. Did they itemize which parts were replaced?
