Code P0725 on 96 Honda Accord V6

My check engine light just came on. I have a 1996 Honda Accord V-6, 163K miles with original engine and tranny. Tranny struggles a little when I go up hills (of which there are a lot of where I live). Engine sputters sometimes when on freeway and putting a load on the engine. Tachomoter is all over the dial. Pep Boys checked and said it was Code: P0725. Does this likely mean my tranny is on its last breath? What else could it mean? Thanks, Polly

P0725 Engine speed input circuit malfunction

This is a transmission code , what happens the transmission uses the engine speed signal for shift points, What you describe is a slipping transmission, this is when the tachometer goes  high. So yes , you have both a engine hesitation or misfire and a slipping transmission

Do you think that means my tranny is fried? Ive been worried about it for the last year because of all the hills in Pittsburgh--I have to engage the tranny a lot. S%#&T!!!!

I wish I had a crystal ball to answer my question....should I repair the tranny to a car that isn't worth as much as a rebuilt tranny would cost; or shuold I seek out a "new" used car (all I could borrow might be $4000-5000)??? Neither proposition is a win in this picture.

On my car, Ive done a lot of maintenance--ball joints, brakes all around, new AC, engine leaks, muffler, strutts---expensive upkeep. If I buy a new/used car, I risk all those things going bad all over again.

It sucks
