Why is Your 2012 ZDX’s Transmission So Important?

Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your ZDX’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Acura ZDX 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. Let Acura ZDX transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your ZDX isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2012 Acura ZDX’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Acura? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Acura tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your ZDX’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your ZDX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my ZDX's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 ZDX’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.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Acura ZDX? Yes. Acura ZDX transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
  • Where can I get my  Acura ZDX transmission fixed? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can troubleshoot and repair ZDX transmission systems. Book an appointment online today.
  • Can I still drive my Acura ZDX if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving your ZDX with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
