What Does Your Honda Ridgeline Transmission Do?

They're often easy to notice. Honda Ridgeline transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Honda Ridgeline transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Ridgeline at all.

Questions About 2021 Honda Ridgeline’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Ridgeline’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Ridgeline's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Honda Ridgeline transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
