When I put my car into the drive position and press on the gas the car will not move. Users of this portal suggested that the problem may be caused by a low level of fluid. I found HEAVY leak below radiator, so one coolant line has a leak.
My question is: Will the transmission work if I tow the car, fix a leak and change transmission fluid? Or it’s too late and transmission died already? Any similar experience?
Additional information: I don’t know when leak began, I use my car every day, yesterday I stopped on red light and had a problem to move ahead on green. I drove ~1 mile with 3000 rpm and 10 mph to nearest parking space. I didn’t hear any noises before the car broke down.
If transmission works without a fluid will it work until it dies or will it just simply stop working (turn off) and remain in working condition?
You will probably be ok for a while if you tow it, fix the leak, and change the fluid and filter. Honda makes a pretty tough transmission. Depending on how much destroyed clutch material is in the pan when you change fluid will detrimine how long it will last. Make sure yu use the correct fluid in it. Wish you the best. Hope this helps, and please rate me highly.

Sounds like radiator problem mixing coolant with oil. Will need to change rad, flush transmission thoroughly to remove contaminated fluid, being sure torque converter flushed as well, then re-assemble everything, & put new fluid & filter in transmission, and hope like heck, too much damage hasn't already occurred. This might be a job for a tranny shop that can flush that system properly, if you have one in area that you trust.
yes..sir you must take your car to the nearst Honda Service Station and ask to the mechanic there to check the transmission and replace the clutch with new one. don't forget to check and maybe change all oil that have connected with your transmission. all work maybe take 1 or 2 days depend on the part that you need to change
