I have a 2009 honda accord sedan auto [transmission](/topics-transmission-honda/). When i shift from park to reverse theres a big noise when i drop down to drive from reverse is not that loud. I changed all motor mount and axles. Any idea on what it is? Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking? From 2009 and no leaks. The fluid is level Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far? Yes. I checked the oil level changed axle and motor Mount

Good Afternoon, my name is \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* ill be helping you, so sorry to hear about the issues here on the Accord. i know how frustrating it can be to deal with transmission issues. Now just so im clear is the noise ever there when you go from park to drive directly or only in park to reverse? any issues when shifting?

Is when i shift from park to reverse and from reverse from drive but is not that bad from D to R
Automotive Expert
okay thank you and how is it from Park to Drive? or does it do it all the time once you pass reverse

but not as bad as from P To R
Automotive Expert
okay thank you, \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* likely hearing the parking pawl disengage when you shift out of park. you wont be able to be sure until you disassemble the transmission to take a look. if it is in fact the pawl then you can replace just that part however it will require the transmission to be dropped and opened up

I changed the axles and motor motor mount. Could it be that the axle came bad from store?
Automotive Expert
its possible just not very likely

But wouldn't it roll if it was the parking pawl
Automotive Expert
no, im not saying your pawl is not working correctly, its likely just worn out causing the noise when you shift out of park

Ooh ok it still does it from D to R not as loud.
Automotive Expert
i still suspect an issue within the transmission causing this, the likelihoof of a faulty part from the parts store will be hard to prove and not as likely

Okay am going to bring the transmission down and inspected that.
Automotive Expert
sounds good!

Thank you
Automotive Expert
no problem
