Questions About 2002 Acura CL’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Acura? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Acura CL? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your CL is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my CL's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Acura CL transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Acura. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
