Default Trans problem 02 accord 2.3L

A few weeks ago I bought the accord I always wanted the only problem the dude said it had was that it shifted hard till it warmed up so I drove it an it drove fine so I bought it anyway for 1300 good deal with 170,000 miles and a sun roof. So with going to college to be a auto tech so I did some more looking n I found it was low on oil an the trans fluid was low an it had a few code so I got it down to 2 codes which are p0700,p0780 with the flash D4 light and I change all the solenoids and it still shifts hard an goes in too limp mode but it fluid it's still red no metal in it.sometimes it'll stall when I 1st crank it up an put it n 1 or 2 gear. So what I'm trying to do is rule out getting a trans for it now but I will if it comes to it

You may have done what shop manual says can be done mechanically to repair.

Manual says to replace trans if codes return after replacing torque converter clutch solenoid valve/shift solenoid valve A and AT clutch pressure control solenoid valves A & B, and resetting PCM.

You might consider draining/replacing ATF w/ Honda ATF. Three sucessive drain/replace/drive cycles will replace most of old ATF. Some have had good results w/ this simple fix.

good luck

Thanks for the advice from driving it doesn't seem to slip at all. The day I found it was low on fluid I put two bottles in an it ran like a new car an clear codes codes It had but after it cooled down it shifted hard again an went in to limp mode. But yesterday I noticed that when I pulled the dual linear solenoids off I seen the 3 metal pipes that had like black surface that came off on a q tip
