What Does Your Acura ILX Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Acura ILX transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Acura ILX transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your ILX at all.

2015 Acura ILX Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Acura ILX? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your ILX towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my ILX transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Acura ILX transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Acura, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can my Acura ILX leak transmission fluid? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Acura ILX, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
  • Where can I get my  Acura ILX transmission fixed? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can troubleshoot and repair ILX transmission systems. Book an appointment online today.
  • Can I still drive my Acura ILX if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving your ILX with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
