The transmission in your Honda is essential for automatically shifting gears when accelerate your speed, slow down, or use reverse. In order for the transmission to properly operate, transmission fluid must be present. Like the other fluids in your Honda, the transmission fluid serves to thoroughly lubricate the moving parts of the operation and minimize the corrosion building up through the transmission. When this fluid breaks down to the point of being inoperable, it must be exchanged. During the transmission fluid exchange service, a certified technician will remove the old transmission fluid from the reservoir, and replenish it with fresh transmission fluid.
You should have this service done every 75,000 miles to ensure proper operation of your transmission. Your transmission requires fresh fluid to prevent a build-up of corrosion in the clutch. When you maintain this service periodically, you are maximizing the lifespan of your transmission, and allowing your Honda's performance to be maintained. Because the fluid keeps the transmission properly operating, having this affordable service maintained will ensure that your transmission stays in healthy form without having to completely replace it.
Some Honda owners and mechanics do not believe that changing transmission fluid is necessary and can last the life of the vehicle. This is a dangerous thought to entertain and as a responsible Honda owner, beware of the dangers that will follow. Eventually, your transmission will begin to breakdown due to inoperable fluids circulating through the system. As it begins to deteriorate, there will be jerks made through your Honda where your transmission is having difficulties shifting gears.
