1996 Honda Accord Transmission Service & Repairs

What Does Your Honda Accord Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Honda Accord transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Honda Accord transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Accord isn’t working at all.

1996 Honda Accord Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? 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 my Honda tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Accord’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Accord's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1996 Accord’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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 Honda, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
