How To Diagnose Your Honda Civic Transmission Problem:
● Check for fluid leaks. If your Civic is leaking a deep red fluid, this is transmission fluid. It may be a main seal leaking or it could be leaking from the transmission housing. The only way to know what seal has failed is to get underneath the vehicle and check for the source of the leak.
● Check to see if the transmission fluid is brown or has a burned smell. This indicates the fluid has burned. This can be caused by a number of different things. However, if your transmission fluid was low to begin with, this is commonplace.
● Check to see if the Honda Civic transmission downshifts when you press the accelerator to the floor while driving in 3rd or 4th gear. If it does not, this can indicate the throttle valve cable is out of adjustment and needs to be adjusted.
● Check to see if your 2001 Honda Civic will start in gears other than park or neutral. If so, then your neutral safety start switch is malfunctioning.
● Check to see if the transmission slips, shifts roughly or is noisy or has no drive in forward or reverse gears. This usually indicates that fluid levels are too low. However, it could indicate gear failure in the transmission. Checking and maintaining proper transmission fluid levels is the first step in solving this problem.
