I need to replace my trans in my 90 dx hatchback it is a 4 speed but I would like to swap it out with a direct replacement 5 speed. Or if someone can give me some idea if i can repair mine it would'nt go into reverse one morning. If I repair it can I put taller 4th gearing in it to increase fuel mileage and lower rpm's?

Repairing that tranny without any real mechanical knowlege and a HONDA repair manual not the shitty haynes one is very difficult. I would just pick up a used tranny out of a LX or DX 5speed or of course a CRX Si. The DX 5 speed and the LX 5 speed are the same. Rember if you get a 88 tranny you need a 88 clutch. there are different number of splines on the input shaft.

yeah if it is just a d series i would swap it out with a five speed. you should be able to pick one up fairly cheap. i may have one in a few weeks so if you are still looking for one let me know.
