Questions About 1996 Acura RL’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Acura RL? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your RL towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your RL is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my RL's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Acura RL 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
