1986 Acura Integra Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 1986 Integra’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Integra’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 1986 Acura Integra transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Acura Integra transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Integra’s not even driveable.

1986 Acura Integra Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Acura? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Acura tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Integra’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Integra is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Integra's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1986 Integra’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
