Thx a lot! So normally how much for this kind of service in dealership? I am in NC.
Since it's a V6, you're probably looking at $800-1100.
A Honda Specialist (google it + your city and state) might be able to lower the cost, though honestly, I've yet to find anything 'that' dramatic in price difference.
2001's have transmission warranty extensions. Private message or post your vin number so I can check recall status for you. There's a good chance that it's covered or partially covered as Honda acknowledges there's a problem.
Here's the rundown of touble spots for the 1998-2002 Accord
Consumer Guide's® Auto Editors have scoured repair bulletins and questioned mechanics to search for commonly occurring problems for a particular vehicle. In some cases we also give possible manufacturer-suggested solutions. In many instances these trouble spots are Technical Service Bulletins posted by the manufacturer, however, we have our own expert looking at additional vehicle problems.
Airbags: The airbag warning light may come on if a cell phone or laptop computer is plugged into the accessory power socket. (2002)
Automatic transmission: On V6 models, transmissions may fail due to lack of thread-locking compound on nut for low clutch. Honda/Acura has extended warranty on affected vehicles to 7 years or 100,000 miles. (1999-2002)
Automatic transmission: Four-speed automatic transmission may shift late or erratically when cold due to faulty linear (pressure control) solenoid. (2002-04)
Blower motor: Blower motor overheats, blows the fuse and may melt the fan because motor cooling hose becomes clogged. (1990-04)
Brakes: The brake light may not go off. The cause is a saturated float in the master cylinder that should be replaced under warranty or beyond. (1998)
Check-engine light: "Check Engine light may glow on vehicles used where salt is used on the roads because the EVAP solenoid fails. (1998-02)
Oil leak: Oil leaks from multiple locations including bolt holes on V6 engines. (1998-2001)
Paint/body: If the car is driven on rough roads, the spoiler on the trunk can rub through the paint unless spacer pads are installed between the spoiler and trunklid. (1998)
Suspension noise: Loose nuts on the rear stabilizer bar cause it to rattle. (1998)
Transmission problems: Automatic transmission problems prompted to company to extend warranty coverage to 7 years/100,000 miles. (2000-02)
Vehicle noise: Noises come from the top of the windshield and rear window because the teeth for the glass fasteners aren't engaged. The teeth must be trimmed and a wool felt installed. (1998)
Wheels: Clicking noises from the wheels can be remedied by applying special grease between the wheels and hubs. (1999-2000)
The bold is the recall, since you're not far over the expiration of the warranty, you've still got a chance. I'd make an appointment with your dealer asap and explain how you know of the extended warranty, how you're just a little over it, and take it in. Maybe let them know you're interested in getting the 105k service done as well, as that means more than just 'another freebie' walking in the door, but moreso a customer that'll come back again.
If this visit doesn't have a positive outcome, call Honda's zone office near you, which can be found near the back of the owners manual, or on (on contact page).
EDIT - Must've been tired when I wrote this. Thought you had a 2001. You've got a slim chance of a free unit as there's no offical 'recall' for 98's apparently. I'd still ask a dealer about it.
