2010 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. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Honda Civic transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Honda Civic transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Civic at all.

2010 Honda Civic Questions & Answers

  • 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 volunteering to tow your friend's 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. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Civic's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
