I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the trans is gone. 98-02 accords were notorious for having slushbox automatic transmissions. About 50% of them were toast within 100k miles.

If I were you, I would get rid of the car. If you getsomeone to rebuild or replace the trans, there is a 50% chance that the same thing will happen again.

Yeah Falkore24 had his trans go out not too long ago. He traded his in (took a hit for the blown trans)and bought a Scion TC (traitor [:'(]).

Several people have had their trans replaces under the Honda extended waranty (Your's is already out of the window I am aftraid - 7 years or 100k miles I think - but you might want to double check on that.) But many of the people who had their trans replaced....the trans went out again and was replaced a 3rd time - it seems the 3rd one had held up in most cases I have read about, or else the owner just got rid of the car.

You could invest $1800 in a rebuild of the tranny and turn the car around and sell it right away, making no mention of the transmission.

Warranty is 109,000 miles.

Really?

The OP didn't tell us the mileage, but this could be a $5,000-$8,000 car. I don't think junking it is the right way to go about this, especially if you can find a reasonable priced rebuild. If this is the four cylinder version, those transmissions are not nearly as unreliable. Either way, on a nice car, it is worth the repair. I've never seen a transmission repair come with anything less than a one year warranty, so he can at least keep it that long. It makes a lot more financial sense than simply "getting rid of the car".

I had similar problem with my 99 accord auto. It turned out to be my ECM. Replaced the ECM and now transmission is working fine.

I would suggest getting the code checked.
