Questions About 1988 Honda Civic’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? 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 I tow in a Honda Civic? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Civic’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Civic's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Honda Civic’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 Honda. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
