Questions About 1999 Honda Civic’s Transmission

  • 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.
  • 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
