Warning Lights

Your Honda should indicate to you when it detects a problem with the transmission. In all likelihood, it will probably be an issue with the temperature or fluid. Either way, when an indicator light goes off, bring it in to our service center.

Fluid Leaks

Ever pull away from your driveway and notice fluid on the ground? That may be transmission fluid, and it could indicate a problem. It could be worn seals or gaskets, damaged bell housings or out of balance drive shaft. Either way, it’s a good idea to get it checked out.


Transmission fluid has a sweet or tart smell to it, so if you notice any of those smells in or around your car, it is definitely time to get it looked at. Problems with your transmission aren’t worth waffling on. You’ll want to get it checked out as soon as you can to prevent more damage.


For manual transmissions, any abrupt grinding noises may indicate a problem. Buzzing, whining, or humming sounds can be a problem for automatic transmissions, and may signal poor shifting happening within the transmission. If you hear any unusual noises, avoid bigger problems by having your vehicle looked at.
