My 2004 Honda Accord EX had the check engine light illuminated and a flashing drive gear indicator. There was clearly some issue with the transmission. At D&R, the approach to diagnostics is thorough and analytical; they want to fix what is actually causing the problem, and not just replace everything they can think of that 'might help'. In the case of my car, it required fabrication of a ground cable and ground wire connector to the transmission - not a complete rebuild or transmission replacement. The charge for labor for diagnostics may seem high, but it takes time and expertise (and equipment!) to properly identify and target repairs, and the overall cost is likely to be much lower than for repairs done with only an 'educated guess' to justify them. The vehicle inspection (~$70) provided me with a complete analysis of all of my car's functioning (and marginally functioning!) parts, along with multiple photos to substantiate and clarify issues. This is great resource for decision-making re. further expenditures on an old car!
