Why is Your 2001 RL’s Transmission So Important?

They're often easy to notice. Acura RL transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Acura RL transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your RL’s not even driveable.

2001 Acura RL 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Acura? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my RL transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Acura RL’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
