swear I'm never going to have this car working. Everything has been great.
Yesterday, though, I noticed a couple quarks with the automatic transmission.
Checked the fluid level and it was a little low, so I added a little under a quart to bring it back to the cross hatched dipstick.
Then last night, the car just quit giving any power to the wheels.
My engine runs, I can move my gear shifter into any position.
When I gas it, my MPH gauge goes up but I don't actually accelerate.
When I try to go into park, the tranny grinds.
I hear a metal clacking near the harmonic balancer.
I hear what has to be metal shimmying when going from N to D1 D2 and D3 and D4.
When engine is running and my car is pushed about 10ft, everything shifts and works fine for about 20 seconds.
CEL is P0700, the most uninformative code there ever was, because from what I gather it means "multiple P07** CEL's detected."
Needed to add whole quart to tranny, but cannot find anything wet or leaking on or around the tranny

Unless you know how to rebuild tranny, I would say, it's time for a new one. Might want to consider swapping to manual, I read somewhere that some Accord's tranny will fit H22's but you'll need to do your own research on that. Best of luck!!

ok so if your MPH is reading that means everything inside your transmission is working correctly up to the output shaft. Double check your CV axles. You might have shattered a joint or something. worst case, might be a busted differential.

Id be looking real hard at your cv axles though.
