Q: Transmission is going out

asked by on

The transmission in my car is going out.

Hi, has the transmission fluid been checked recently? If the fluid is low, the transmission won’t be able to engage gears properly and can act sluggish. Other owners of Accords have reported issues with their transmissions so if the fluid is still full the transmission may be failing. A certified technician would be able to help you check the fluid and diagnose the issue further.
