Question about 1996 Acura SLX

1 Answer

Transmission problems I have a 1996 Acura SLX. I've been having some problems with the transmission. It slips when I'm coming out of a full stop. My main questions are: Can you buy transmission kits for this model? Can you open up the transmission in this model to replace seals, gaskets, ect...? I just want to know if I can rebuild the transmission, replace the whole transmission, or if I have to take it in the rear from the dealer on this one?

    I should also ad that the 1996 Acura SLX, is just the 1996 Isuzu Trooper with the Acura name on it.

In Japan they dont have Acura, they just call them Honda. The 1996 Honda automatic transmission is known for giving out anywherer between 110K-145K miles depending on how its driven. i say, DO NOT GO TO A DEALER!! unless you have substantial cash. the dealer will offer a great warranty and so on, but you can find a shop that will warranty the work they do as well for a drastically lower price. try to find a place that does only trannies and yeah, typically the trans can be fixed without too much extra labor hours. its up to you to determin how much time, $, and effort YOU are willing to put into the repair of your vehicle.

I am looking at buying a 1996 Acura SLX with transmission problems. According to the owner, who has no mechanical know how, it blew a fitting and lost all the transmission fluid.

only pay scrap value for it as the transmission will cost up to $3000.00 to replace
There may be nothing wrong other than pump and solenoids but the worst case is the bearings and gears will be damaged requiring a replacement transmission and you will need a service exchange transmission
personally I would walk away from the deal unless it is dirt cheap

Change transmission fluid

You didn't say if it is a auto or manual transmission; also what engine you have? On my wifes Honda Accord V6, just drain fluid and re-fill. This will not empty the Torque Converter but what I did was do the drain and re-fill then let her drive until next oil change (3000 miles) and do it again. Hope this helps,

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

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