    88 Accord shudders when goinf 1st to 2nd

    What cause the above? I change fluid with Dexron 3 but no change in
    behaviour. Someone suggested that only Honda ATF is the stuff to use. Would
    that cause this problem ? It started to happen on a 30 KM trip one night.

    Yeah, the Dexron can cause it to shudder. So can mechanical failure.

    Dexron II is the specified transmission fluid. Dexron III is the
    replacement for Dexron II and is supposed to meet Dexron II requirements.
    The Honda ATF supposedly has conditioners that may increase your seal life,
    etc. in Honda transmission. Obviously you can't prove it.

    You may just need the throttle cables adjusted. From the gas pedal there
    are two cables. One opens the throttle at the carburetor, the other tells
    the transmission how far you're pressing the gas (tells it how hard you want
    to accelerate. I imagine you have a lot of miles on the car and it is about
    16 years old. It is likely something is worn. Still, that something could
    just be the throttle cable.
