Questions About 2004 Honda Civic’s Transmission

  • 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 my Honda tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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. 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.
