Caring for your Honda's transmission is one of the most important maintenance tasks you'll need to do over the years to keep your engine running smoothly. Replacing a transmission can cost you about $2,000, so it is in your best interest to keep it working properly for as long as possible. Here at McGrath Honda of Elgin, we offer a variety of transmission services to meet your needs.
The best way to stay on top of what is going on with your transmission is to get regular inspections for it. However, many drivers overlook this service because it can be costly and time-consuming. Your transmission is housed inside a secure casing, so it requires quite a bit of effort to inspect. It will be well worth it, though, as you'll be able to drive with confidence that your transmission is in good condition.
Also called a transmission flush, this is a common service that you should have done about every 30,000 miles, though it can vary slightly from model to model. Check your owner's manual to find out what to do for your specific vehicle. The goal of this service is to clean out your transmission by replacing the old transmission fluid with a fresh supply. Over time, debris and contaminants can build up in your transmission fluid, making it less effective and efficient. Flushing it out periodically will minimize complications due to dirty transmission fluid.
Even with excellent care and maintenance, your transmission likely won't last forever, so you may need to replace it at some point. It is best to opt for a new transmission, as this will give you the longest lifespan, though you can also find gently used transmissions if you are looking to cut down your costs. However, you won't necessarily know how well it has been taken care of, so this can be a risky choice. It is always better to go with a new transmission if you can afford it.
