Questions About 1998 Acura RL’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 RL? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. 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? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1998 RL’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.
