2008 Honda CR-V Transmission Service & Repairs

What’s the Importance of Your 2008 CR-V’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. 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 CR-V’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Honda CR-V transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Honda CR-V transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your CR-V at all.

2008 Honda CR-V Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Honda? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your CR-V’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my CR-V transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 CR-V’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Honda, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
