Questions About 2016 Acura ILX’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your ILX’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your ILX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my ILX's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2016 ILX’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can my Acura ILX leak transmission fluid? Yes. Acura ILX transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
