Did you all have the work done on the transmission put under warantee? I have an 07 that doesnt have bumper to bumper any more but I still have the power train coverage. Will they do it under warrantee? If not, how much does it cost? Im glad I found this thread. Me and my best freind who just purchased (me 2007, him 2008) coupes have noticed this problem in the first week of having the cars. Ill try the new fluid maybe this weekend to see if that helps at all and will follow up if I talk to the dealer about fixing the problem.

I bought my car this past February, and have noticed this problem only a handful of times. Nothing major, just a couple times a month. I received all the records from the owner and I noticed that he took it in to a dealer and had them check the problem. They checked it and changed the fluid to the new MTF made by Honda. Of those who have had the work performed, how much did it cost? I work for Honda making the CRV and have been told that TSBs' are the owners' responsibility, not Honda's.

So what good is the TSB, looks like you have to hunt down the people listed and hope they agree to help you out. I actually just had my car at the service center 2 weeks ago for the P/S hose recall and asked them to check it out, they said it was a worn cable lol. I have an 06 Accord, and ever since I had the recall done my car idles well above it used to 1500 RPMs and randomly spikes while I'm sitting in it. I may want to take it else where for the fix, if they feel I deserve it.

Service bulletins are NOT recalls & usually repairs aren't free. They're simply a possible short cut for diagnostics.

i had a 06 acura tL A-SPEC and had the problem with my 3rd gear like i presently do in my 04 honda accord V6 6 speed. i dumped the crappy honda oil, and added GM syncromesh and works flawlessly. i alos did this in my Acura and ran well for over 30K miles without one peep. i love a honda/ Acura more then anything but bottom line, the GM syncromesh is better, i dont understand how the fluid makes it that much better by changing it but it works and works wonders. honda never admits to alot of issues nor does any stealership. my advice for people, drain the old MTF, and add GM syncromesh, it feels so much smoother as well. well worth the $16 a quart. as for me i try to do all things like this on my own. besides, who can you really trust?

Just bought a 2006 Accord, and have occasionally seen the same 3rd gear pop-outs. Since there is no warranty left, I'm going to go with the fluid replacement. I found a write up for the 5 speed, but haven't been able to find one for the v6 6 speed. Is there one? Or any major differences?

I did read that I need AC Delco 10-4014, as they changed the part numbers. I'll be picking up a few quarts this week, and hope to do the fluid change this weekend.

Same thing just purchased an 07 v6 six speeds and had the 3rd gear pop out issue twice already in two days of ownership. I guess I'll have to change the tenant fluid. Grrrr

I had the 3rd gear syncro done under warranty way back in 2008 on my 2006 Accord V6-6. Since then I have had no issues, but I did switch to the GM Syncromesh Friction Free at about 50K miles. Handed down this car to my son at around 60K. Long story short, he's been away at school for a few years and I lost track of the miles on the tranny fluid. He came home a few weeks ago and said his clutch pedal went to the floor (he is now at 101K). Bought some new GM fluid, put it in and no more problems. I guess I was lucky to get away with the old stuff for so long, but probably should have replaced it about 15K miles ago.

As much as I believe in the GM synchromesh fluid and use it in my Accord for the last 9 years and even in my summer German fun car for the last 3 years, the new GM synchro fluid could not possibly fix the clutch pedal issue in your (son's) Accord, the clutch pedal going to the floor is either the master or slave clutch cylinder hydraulic issue, the GM fluid in the transmission housing will NOT fix that problem.

It's like suggesting changing the tires rectified a brake issue, the two are physically close to each other in proximity, but totally unrelated.

That is unless you put the GM fluid in the clutch master cylinder reservoir because the level was low, if so then that's another problem since the GM fluid is not hydraulic fluid, DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid is required for clutch hydraulic system.

You likely have temporarily restored the clutch operation when you pulled the clutch pedal back up and changed the transmission fluid at the same time, but the two are unrelated, I predict whatever the real cause of this clutch problem is will soon return.
