I just got this as an trade from a friend, but the auto trans is bad....I think. It will run for a few mins then it will act as its in N and if I let it seats for a few mins, then it will run a few min.
Can anyone or know someone in NE PA know how to replace the auto trans cheaply?

Pretty common on the Honda's I'm afraid - their auto's are notorious for being junk. I can list off half a dozen friends that have been burned by those just off the top of my head.

Shouldn't be a real hard swap - pull axles, unbolt and rebolt. Honda FWD transaxles aren't terribly difficult. Finding a good used one that will last a decent number of miles might be a challenge though.
