1985 Honda Prelude Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Honda's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Honda Prelude? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Prelude’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Prelude's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 Prelude’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
