Re: How to add oil??

best way is to take it to a garage and get them to pump it directly into your gearbox with a tube and pump..it makes the least mess and u can guarantee a full top up

Re: How to add oil??

Pull the transmission dip stick, drain it from the drain bolt on the passanger side using a 3/8ing ratchet, then fill from the transmission dip stick hole.

Re: How to add oil??

how many miles your car got? cause i would not recommend replacing the fluid of a automatic transmissions, specially the ****ty transmission of Honda, and specially the trip tonic. just add some tranny restore.

Download the online manual (in my sig). It has detailed information on how to drain and refill your automatic transmission.

Trannys arnt fun, whay are you changing it? I was told if you do the tranny oil over and over then you would change the oil but if you never have done it with 100kmi on it, you might as well take that 60 bucks and your time to the strip club. You can also get your trany flushed and they pump tranny fluid in it constantly untill you have brand new fluid, no left over ****. (i have done this before on a ****ty accord tranny and the bitch slipped more)

BTW you DO know to USE only HONDA trany fluild for hondas auto trannys? If not you are and that **** aint cheap
