The Honda Accord is notorious for their transmission problems, and specifically the 2004 Honda Accord is one of the most common vehicles we see brought into the shop. Usually, transmission repair issues start happening before the vehicle has reached 80,000 miles.
Here are three signs your 2004 Honda Accord transmission may need a transmission repair or transmission rebuild. (Should you witness any of these signs, it’s time to bring in your Honda Accord for a Free Transmission Diagnosis. We are Charlotte’s best Transmission Repair and Transmission Rebuild shop. Call us at 704-821-3460 for an appointment.)
Sign #1: Your Honda Accord transmission is slipping gears. Of the three signs in this list, this is probably the most serious; 2004 Accord owners on various automotive forums on the internet state that when the transmission starts to slip, total transmission failure quickly follows. The moment your transmission slips gears, in order to avoid a dangerous breakdown, call us at 704-821-3460 immediately. (We offer Free Towing throughout the Charlotte NC area if your car is not safe to drive directly to our shop.)
Sign #2: You have problems shifting gears; the gear shift may get stuck. This sign can sometimes occur independently or can occur at the same time as Sign #1 on the list. This is also a sure sign that your Honda Accord needs a transmission repair or transmission rebuild.
Sign #3: The transmission fluid is black or dark brown. If you suspect that your transmission is about to fail, check under the hood. When you check the transmission fluid levels, a normal color is anywhere from very light brown to a nice solid red. Black or dark brown fluid indicates that the transmission was neglected or is malfunctioning. If the transmission fluid is dark and dirty, you’re going to need repairs.
There are other signs that your Honda transmission may need a transmission repair or transmission rebuild; should any of these occur, call us immediately at 704-821-3460.
