Your Honda’s engine has plenty of get-up-and-go, but you won’t go anywhere without your transmission. The transmission takes the power and torque your engine generates and converts it into forward movement, spreading it out over several gears to keep you and your occupants at speed. Unfortunately, neglect, defects, and abuse can condemn a transmission to a short life. When transmission issues rear their ugly heads, a complete transmission replacement may be your only option. Turn to Muller Honda, Lake County’s source for quality repairs and service, whenever your vehicle that only a team of certified service technicians can offer.
With the proper level of care and maintenance, your Honda’s transmission can last for the life of the vehicle. Nevertheless, transmission failures can occur – sometimes with little to no warning. Neglectful actions like forgetting to check and change your transmission fluid when required by your vehicle owner’s manual or service schedule can lead to eventual failure. Towing an overloaded trailer can also stress your transmission to the point of failure, resulting in catastrophic internal damage. Ignoring transmission leaks can also put your transmission in danger of a catastrophic failure, especially as you operate your vehicle with dangerously low transmission fluid levels.
Sudden transmission failures are not uncommon, but an ailing transmission will give you several warning signs shortly before it fails. For instance, your transmission may shift gears sluggishly, hunt between gears or fail to shift out of a particular gear. An ailing transmission may even lose gears entirely. If you haven’t changed your transmission fluid in a long time, then chances are it’s dangerously worn and filled with clutch material, giving the fluid an extremely dark color and a burnt odor. When transmission fluid appears this way, it’s only a matter of time before a transmission replacement is needed.
