What is Honda Manual Transmissions?

A Manual transmission (AKA stick-shift, manual gearbox or standard transmission) is a type of transmission in which the driver is responsible for shifting gears by using the clutch and gas pedals.

The ‘gearbox’ is the second stage in the transmission system, after the clutch. It is usually bolted to the rear of the engine, with the clutch between them.

Most cars today with manual transmissions have five or six different forward gear ratios, however, manual transmissions can have anywhere from three to seven gears, depending on the year the vehicle was made. 

What are the common problems?

Manual transmission problems can develop due to high mileage, abuse, or lack of proper maintenance. Most manual transmission issues originate not with the transmission itself, but from related components like the clutch assembly, linkage, or driveline.

A few signs that could indicate a worn-out manual transmission are:

  • Strange sounds such as whirring, squealing or
  • Grinding or slipping gears
  • Difficult to put in/out of gear with the gear stick shift
  • Leaking transmission fluid
  • Burning smell when driving

How to Diagnose Transmission Problems?

Like all technology, the types of transmissions used in modern transmission 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 on-board 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.

I just found the price way too high, but had no choice. $8200 for transmission repair with only 90 day warranty a bit steep.

I was given multiple options before
Meredith A
I was given multiple options before even going in to the location. I was told I would get a free second opinion. Everything I was promised, I received. For having to put so much money into a vehicle 2 years in a row, Mr. Transmission took the pain out of it for me. I have peace of mind knowing that I have a reliable vehicle to drive around in. My husband and I own a 2016 Ram 1500, and the dealeship was only willing to give us $4,000.00 for trade in on our truck when we were looking to trade our truck in, instead of having the transmission repaired. Mr.Transmission took the sting out of this. Every year, we have to get our a safety inspection on our truck, last year it cost us $8,000 right before Christmas. Merry Christmas to us. All our savings have gone into our vehicle the last 4 years, and we can not get ahead, let alone go away for a weekend or anything. Having options to fix our vehicle was the best of a bad situation. I am very grateful for all of Mr.Transmissions help.
