    It could be a lot of things. Ur clutch maybe bad but if u want to be shure....put it in 5th gear and rev it to 2k and see if it stalls or not. If it keeps goin u need to change ur clutch. Simple test. Second, if ur saying it feels like it stuck then the reverse idler gear might be broken or jammed. Try changin the transmission fluid and see if that works. Do the clutch test first and get back with us and maybe we can diagnois it from there..i might just break out my text book then...lol

    I took the car to a clutch shop today and they said its not the clutch. they say it's the traany. or what you said that reverse gear.
    do you know if it's hard to replace that reverse gear. do i need any special tool.

    Naw, the reverse gear is probly the easiest gear to mess with. I reccomend that u do it with someone who's expierence if ur not goin to take it to the shop. I took a few apart, but not any honda's yet. Not too hard. Defin. will need a press to do it. I think......i'd read the manual and see wat it calls for....RTFM...Read the fawking manual. Thats wat my instructor says to us. By the way, u still need to replace ur clutch any ways. From tha test u did, that i told u to do..might as well replace it too. since ur goin to tear the tranny from the motor.
