What Does Your Acura RDX Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Acura RDX transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Acura RDX transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your RDX isn’t working at all.

2018 Acura RDX Questions & Answers

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Acura? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your RDX’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my RDX transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Acura RDX 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
