1986 Renault R18i Transmission Service

What Does Your Renault R18i Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Renault R18i transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Renault R18i transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your R18i at all.

1986 Renault R18i Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Renault'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 Renault tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your R18i’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your R18i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my R18i's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Renault R18i transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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 Renault, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
