Questions About 1997 Honda Odyssey’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Honda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Honda Odyssey? 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 Odyssey’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 Odyssey transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Honda Odyssey transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
