What’s the Importance of Your 2009 RL’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2009 Acura RL transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Acura RL transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your RL isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2009 Acura RL’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Acura's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Acura tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your RL’s towing capacity. 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.
  • Does my RL's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Acura RL’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
