What is Honda Automatic Transmission?

Honda’s automatic transmissions are different than nearly all other automakers because they do not use planetary gears – instead, they use individual gears on parallel axels, similar to a manual transmission.

What are the common problems in Honda Automatic Transmission?

The most common cause of failure in a Honda automatic transmission is a malfunctioning torque converter, which can cause shifting problems in automatic transmissions. The torque converter in an automatic transmission serves the same purpose as the clutch in a manual transmission. It is the part of your car that controls how much fluid is passed on to the automatic transmission and allows your engine to continue running while at a complete stop.

It is very important to note that if your torque converter is malfunctioning, it will continue to fail over the course of several weeks or even months before it completely breaks down. This can lead to the transmission fluid in your vehicle becoming contaminated with metal debris and can cause significant damage to your transmission, which may require a costlier repair such as a complete rebuild.

How to Diagnose Transmission Problems?

A few signs to look for that might indicate a malfunctioning torque converter or any other transmission problems include:

  • Transmission slipping, grinding or jumping during acceleration when the car is shifting gears
  • Overheating
  • Contaminated transmission fluid
  • Check Engine Light On
  • Gears changing at high RPM

Like all technology, the types of transmissions used in modern passenger vehicles have changed tremendously over the years. Today’s vehicles come equipped with complex computer systems, and our facilities have the newest diagnostic technology that can communicate with your automobile’s computer systems to determine your specific transmission problems.

The first step in determining your transmission problems consists of a technician connecting the diagnostic equipment to your vehicle’s onboard computer. This will produce a code stating where the problem lies. Following this, the vehicle should be taken for a test drive so that our technicians can monitor the transmission’s behavior in real-time. While more comprehensive and hands-on evaluations might still be necessary, today’s diagnostic technology is an integral tool in determining the best starting point for further investigations. Often time the repair that you need can be relatively minor, which is why diagnosing your problem correctly is key in keeping your repair costs as minimal as possible.
