Honda Transmission Repair

One of the biggest mechanical issues any vehicle driver faces is a bad transmission. Transmissions can cause huge problems and result in costly repairs. There are simple ways to alleviate a potential bad transmission. Honda vehicle owners need to check their transmission fluid as often as possible. A good service department includes a simple transmission fluid check with any visit.

When Should I Change My Transmission Fluid?

Transmission fluid is something that always needs to be monitored in every single vehicle. Some professionals recommend a transmission fluid change at specific intervals depending on the specific vehicle type. You can consult your vehicle manual for more specific instructions and recommendations. Our service department can also recommend when your fluid needs to be changed based on an inspection. The important thing to remember for every vehicle owner is regular maintenance. Many vehicle owners are busy with the time restraints of work and life these days. They don't have the time to diagnose issues or regularly perform maintenance. Issues may just arise through the course of regular driving.

Honda owners might first notice symptoms of a bad transmission when the vehicle starts slipping. This means the gears don't change fluidly. The transmission allows a vehicle to change from one gear to another. Low levels of transmission fluid could certainly be the issue. Bad or old fluid could be another potential problem. A transmission might also need to be repaired. Worn or broken bands within the transmission can cause slippage.

How To Avoid Issues

The best way to avoid issues is with simple maintenance. There is no definitive way to prevent eventual wear and tear. Vehicle owners can prevent long term damage by closely monitoring the fluids and keeping an eye on potential slippage. This means opening the hood and checking the transmission fluid dipstick. A low level could potentially mean a leak. This means you'll need to consult a professional unless you have mechanical expertise. You will need to refill the fluid first.
