Why is Your 1989 CRX’s Transmission So Important?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Honda CRX transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

Questions About 1989 Honda CRX’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 CRX? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my CRX transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Honda CRX’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Honda. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
