1989 Honda Civic Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Honda's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Honda tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Civic towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Civic is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Civic's transmission fluid need to be inspected? 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.
