The engine in your Honda creates power — but it’s the transmission that takes that power and makes it useful. Your transmission takes the energy generated by the engine and transfers it to the wheels, allowing your Honda to move. To function as it should, the transmission requires transmission fluid, and this fluid will need to be changed from time to time. When your Honda is due for a transmission fluid exchange, come to the service department at Bravo Honda in Victoria, serving Inez and Bloomington, Texas.
Your Honda’s transmission is complex, with many moving metal components. The transmission fluid acts as a lubricant to avoid damage from friction. It does this in all types of transmissions; however, it serves an additional purpose in automatic transmissions. These generate more heat than manual transmissions, so automatic transmission fluid also acts as a coolant.
As time passes, your Honda model’s transmission fluid will lose its ability to lubricate properly and cool the transmission. It may become contaminated with tiny bits of metal and rubber, or it may simply begin to break down and degrade. In either case, the fluid will no longer perform its function well, and it can lead to transmission damage.
