2001 Honda Accord Q&A
2001 Honda Accord Question: transmission oil leak from 2001 honda accord lx.
I own a honda accord 2001 lx, recently I visited a honda dealer they told me that there is leak from my transmission, they advised me to replace the transmission but it cost me around 4grands. My question is who can in detail inspect the severity of this problem as they are not ready to open the trans, If it's not much severe I can use the trans which I got on vehicle else no choice left replacing it. (Approximate mileage is 82,000 and my monthly mileage is around 900Miles). - ghodke
The severity of the problem would be determined by two things ....1) how much fluid do you add to trans. each month?.......2) are you getting any vibration or noise from the trans right now?.....To properly check fluid level on your car it should be at 'operating' temperature (Honda recommends 10 miles driven) then shut off on LEVEL ground and check the dipstick after approximately 1 minute of it being shut off. - ziptie12
I have to agree with answer 1. What area is the fluid coming from, where is it leaking. A leak does not warrant trans. replacement unless the case is worn or porous. - pushrod
