The Honda is an exceptionally well made automobile particularly the engine. You you get a more than usual amount of life on your Honda transmission as long as you maintain it properly, flush out the system and abide by the owner's manual's strict periodic maintenance schedule. The Honda transmission usually had problems, if you encounter them, after 150,000 miles or more. In most cases the check engine light will come on and when this happens its a good idea to bring the car in as soon as possible for a transmission diagnostics check.
Grinding gear sounds and missed gear engagement are among some of the transmission problems we have seen along with gears popping out in the Honda Civic. Repairing the torque convertor on the Honda Civic usually remedies this problem. If not repaired in a timely manner the transmission will heat up and burn through the fluid lubricating your gears and then transmission will seize up. During a span of 4 years from 2001 to 2004 there have been numerous Honda transmission failures which eventually prompted a recall for models such as The Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot, Honda Accord and the Acura. If your vehicle was not in the recall, we may be able to replace the torque convertor, forward clutches, pump, gasket and seals or other components or if the problem has exacerbated we may need to do a rebuild or replace the transmission.
In the Honda CR-V model transmission from 2003 to 2008 the clutches and torque converters are the biggest repair. The clutch wears out and the system and filter gets clogged with debris. The overheating of the transmission causes this failure. Avoid having to rebuild your transmission by having the system checked periodically after 60,000 miles. If a s haft breakdown occurs more hard parts will be required to repair the transmission.
At The Lake Worth Transmission Repair Shop in Palm Beach county we have encountered several Honda Accord models from 1997 to 2008 4WD, automatic and manual transmissions had major breakdowns between 75,000 miles and up. Poor manufacturing gave mechanics no access to the filters which become clogged with metal shavings and other contaminants. Eventually the transmission would run hot and destroy the transmission which would then have to be rebuilt. An auxiliary cooling system has been tried to cool down the system but they was just a stop gap measure.
The key is to have your transmission system maintained by a well trained expert in Honda Transmissions as are our ASE Certified technicians at The Lake WorthTransmission Repair Shop and don't let a small problem become a bigger one.
