Default My $660 JDM KA8 coupe, in New Zealand

Gday from down under, y'all! Thanks for the heads-up on this site, canucks - here I am!

I have finally got another Legend, after having a KA7 many moons ago. This time I wanted the coupe - always have. I was looking for a good example, but most where in the NZ$3-4k range. Finally found a clean example with an odd tranny fault, offered $900 ($660US) for it, and owned it.

The tranny is not slipping, rather 'falling out' of gear, especially cold. I understand it has been doing this for 30,000 km (20k mi). It had a new filter & Honda ATF a 2000km ago, but this didn't fix the problem, although reduced it marginally. I'm picking it's a flow issue, as the vehicle is 1991 & 270k km old. Can anyone suggest what I should do next? I'm thinking of doing a deep chemical clean, followed by flush & conditioner. Any point?

I will post again in mechanical, this post is just by way of introduction. Thanks to all who read & take the time to say hi!

Papa.
