2008 Honda Ridgeline Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? 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 Ridgeline? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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 Ridgeline transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Honda Ridgeline transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
  • Can Honda Ridgeline transmission fluid leak? Yes. Honda Ridgeline transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.

  • Can I still drive my Honda Ridgeline if it has a transmission fluid leak? It’s not advisable to drive your Ridgeline if it’s leaking transmission fluid. Your transmission system needs transmission fluid to function properly, and a leak can lead to significant problems, such as overheating or reduced performance. You might even experience transmission failure.
