1992-1995 Honda Civic Transmission Problems

You can experience your first problems starting from 120,000 miles. The most common are:

  • Transmission failure (130,000 miles);
  • Loose shifter (150,000 miles).

In general, cars of this generation already have significant mileage, so you should not expect their transmission to be reliable. Although, at their time, these were extremely durable cars.

3 thoughts on “Honda Civic Transmission Fluid Capacity”

  1. 2011 there was an overlap between 8th and 9th civics. I have a 2011 8th gen with a non CVT automatic transmission. Your article suggests all 2011 Civics have CVT. This is very misleading. Would hate for Someone to use CVT oil in their 8th gen Civic!

  2. Thanks for the information on the 2017 civic it doesn’t list the capacity for CVT in the book that comes with car. My civic is 1.5 turbo and your site says capacity is 2.39 and oil is Hfc2 thanks again.
