    My air selector did the same thing. I fixed it by punching the damn and breaking off 3/4 of the tabs holding it in. It works 100 now.

    As for the trans yes it’s gone. You can try draining and filling it with fresh fluid and try that Lucas trans fix for the hell of it.

    For the transmission, it's best to use Honda's DW-1 fluid. Using any other fluid will make it fail faster.

    Try draining the automatic transmission fluid out of it, and replacing it with 3 quarts of Honda DW-1 automatic transmission fluid. If that does not help at all, you should look into having the transmission repaired. Or if you don't think it is worth it for the price of the car (since you bought it for not very much money), maybe look into buying a slightly newer car, or a manual transmission car.
