My car is slipping in 2nd and 3rd gear when driving.
Hi there. When your model Civic begins to experience this it it is the first sign of transmission failure. The transmission fluid needs to be checked to see if it is at the right level. If it is check the condition. If it is dark or smells burnt then that is a sign of failure. At that point the fluid should be drained and inspected for metal. Any metal in the fluid means that the transmission needs to be rebuilt or replaced. This is best left up to a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, that performs transmission fluid services.
