Question about 1996 Acura SLX

2 Answers

How do you change or add transmission fluid in this vehicle?

The transmission slips when I first take off, but changes in all other gears, how do I check to see if the fluid is low, and if I see fluid thats falling to the ground from around the transmission area what could be the problem?

There is no way to check the fluid level short of removing and disassembling it.. The 96 slx tranny is a sealed system.

I have a 96 Chevy suburban and I was driving through the mountains and the transmission kept down shifting or slipping gears help?


Was it loaded with weight? Could have been overdrive. Vehicle should sometimes be dropped onto 3rd and left there under hilly conditions. So as not to shift too much. Suggest checking trans fluid level , possible trans filter change, or add trans cooler to keep temp down in fluid when in hilly terrain. Good luck.

Transmission not shiftin



For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----

tranny fluid should be changed if the vehicle was driven in high water, or if the tranny slips or doesnt change gears properly/smoothly.

Transmission slipping


You have a problem with the bands in the transmission. They will need to be adjusted to correct the problem. Also have the transmission filter changed with new transmission fluid. Check the fluid level in transmission first,if low add fluid and test drive. If its the same as before you will need to go to a transmission place to have the bands adjusted to correct the problem. Hope this will help you.

Gear problem


OK, slipping is an internal transmission problem. If the vehicle has not been on the road for a long time, I suggest that you at least change the trans fluid. Depending upon what year the vehicle was made, electronics play some part in trans operation (later years more so than earlier ones) but from what I understand from your post, it seems more likely that internal transmission clutches are not getting adequate apply pressure, and are therefore slipping. Using lower transfer case gears puts less load on the transmission therefore making it easier to get the vehicle moving, but the slipping is likely still there.If when you remove the trans pan you find a large amount of debris in there (either metal or clutch material), or any gummy residue this will verify that the problem is inside the unit. On some transmissions you can change pressure, but in most cases this does little or nothing to help the problem.
