(easily found in a search.... :rolleyes: )


It's pretty straightforward... just like an oil change only the fill bolt is on the side and you'd be best off to go to Wal-Mart and get a funnel with the tube. Also, I did not remove my tire to do this... Wasn't necessary.

Yes there is a new fluid, I think its called sHeOaNrDcAh.



(also easily found in a search. It's in the upper right corner just below Private Messages and a little to the left)

:thumbsup:

when should you replace tranny fluid? im coming up on 44k with "stock" fluids.
whenever your owners manual tells you to.

I did mine at 65K was sposed to be done at 60K I saw no problems... then again I Got my car at 57K so I don't know when it was changed before that.

Some people do it every 30K miles. :dontknow:

i just changed my tranny fluid today, and it's like a whole new car. I used the new Honda MTF and it shifts so much more smoothly, and both of my tranny quirks, the occasional grind and 3rd gear wall are both gone. I just passed 50k btw

The Helms service manual says replace MTF at 120k/6yrs under normal conditions and 60k/3yrs under severe conditions. I would do it at least every 60k.

After you have figured out where it's located, you really don't need to jack the car up. Fortunately my garage has a drop as soon as you exit so I just crawl underneath and do it that way. Hand pump the fluid in from the top and all is good.
