1990 Honda Civic Transmission Service

What Does Your Honda Civic Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Civic’s performance. They're often easy to notice. 1990 Honda Civic transmission problems could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Honda Civic transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Civic’s not even driveable.

1990 Honda Civic Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Honda'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 I tow in a Honda Civic? 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.
  • How often does my Civic transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Honda Civic transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Honda's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
