    Hi all, really hoping you can help me with this one.

    Is the automatic gearbox control unit integrated with the cars ECU or are they separate units?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.:Unknown:

    Many thanks

    Hi Andy.

    Thanks so much for the help.
    I have a gearbox glitch where the revs will increase when changing from 3rd to 4th only when under gentle driving conditions.
    I took it to a gearbox specialist who tested the car for about a half hour (I was dreading the news that the seals and clutches were going and the box needed a rebuild) but he said the gearbox was fine
    And that it was possible a control unit fault, I called a guy I know at Honda to see if the TCM was a separate unit and he said he didn’t know but it might be integrated into the ECU...

    I had a 3 by 3 gearbox oil service (using Honda ATF) to make sure the torque converter was flushed and when it glitched drained 3 litres and replaced again to make sure it’s perfect.

    I do indeed, they told me they no longer have the skills or the diagnostics to help me.
    Luckily, thanks to this forum, I found a Japanese car specialist very close, it is booked in for a diagnostic with them on the 10th of July.

    Wish me luck…
