Default Can you do permanent damage on your tranny buy spinning your tires in snow/ice a few times

in a 15 min span? I live in Montreal Canada and I have a honda accord 2006 with 124 000 kms on it, it's in good condition as I maintain it well and put top quality synthetic oil. two days ago Montreal got hit with a Monster snow storm and my sister called me to go help her out because her car got stuck somewhere else......anyway my car got stuck in my own lot and I spinned the tires a few times, but didn't redline it, longest I spinned it for was 10-15 seconds a few times if that at all. I did smell some rubber from the tires. I spoke with my cousin and he told me to never do that again as it f...ks up the transmission. I just want to know how much damage I did, I'm worried I messed up my transmission.

Don't sweat it.I have twisted wrenches my whole life and have a junk yard to,so cars are my life as you can see.For starters you can get FACTS on how well that cars tranny is rated through Consumer Reports for free,as I will tell it Honda is built to take on just about anything(like a timex watch)if you keep up your regular maintenance.You have to watch out for the timing belt on your car most of all because if it goes your looking at 800 to a 1000 because the head valves get hit.Burn all the rubber you want,as for the red line-the car computer will stop it from hitting any dangerous RPMs. Free revving the engine is another no-no too.Through my years 250,000 miles is the minimum mileage for that car with basic maintenance.So in so many words,DONT WORRY. For all you cry babies that think this answer is wrong,Im 43 and have worked on and drove more of these cars than you have seen in a year.Put that in your pipe an smoke it Juniors.

If slippage by ice/snow then no.































If you are doing burn outs on dry surface then yes. It's the matter if you are stressing and overheating the trans.

I drive a Mustang with automatic transmission. It is awful in the snow and I find myself spinning my wheels all the time. I've been stuck for ten to fifteen minutes several times. If you are not careful when rocking the car to get it moving you could hurt the transmission. But after 10 years and 200,000 miles, I haven't had a transmission problem yet.
