What Does Your Honda CRX Transmission Do?

Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. 1990 Honda CRX transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Honda CRX transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your CRX’s not even driveable.

Questions About 1990 Honda CRX’s Transmission

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Honda tow?   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.
