Hi there - My daughter is away at school and the check engine light came on in her 1994 Honda Civic.
It seems to be driving fine but the place that she went to have it checked out said "It is a $1200 transmission repair and it's unknown if it will fix the problem. Not 100% sure if that will fix it. Sometimes with these older Civics it takes a while to fix the problem." Any insight?
I am assuming it is an automatic transmission. Manuals usually run until they break: No troubleshooting necessary.
Modern electronic transmissions are a massive improvement over traditional auto trannies; both in performance and reliability. The problem is diagnosing and repairing them once they have problems.
Your mechanic's diagnosis seems realistic and reasonable.
Do a tranny flush, have your mechanic check fluid for signs of serious problems then drive it until it breaks.
A 1994 car is too old to be considering this action. Continue to operate the car as-is until it becomes apparent that it won't go any more.
