Questions About 1983 Honda Prelude’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Honda's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Honda Prelude? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Prelude’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Prelude is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.

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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
