Questions About 1997 Honda Prelude’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Honda's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 small. Defying your Prelude towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • Does my Prelude's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1997 Prelude’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Honda's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
