Why is Your 1999 Prelude’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Honda Prelude transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Honda Prelude transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Prelude at all.

Questions About 1999 Honda Prelude’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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Honda tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • How often does my Prelude transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Honda Prelude’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
