1987 Acura Legend Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Acura's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Acura Legend? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Legend towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Legend is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Legend's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Acura Legend 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.
