Is there a DIY guide on how to change the transmission fluid on a 5th lude? What are the steps on changing the tranny fluid? Thorough step by step instructions are welcome. How much ATF fluid is needed? Haven't changed my fluid in 15k =/

Thanks

I'm sure an auto shop could do it for ya. LOL. Changing it yourself should be similar to changing your oil really. Drain it, plug it, fill it. I'm not sure on how much fluid it requires, but i'm sure a hanes manual would give you all the info you need, and steps to do it.

I've always been told that you can drain it, fill it, drive it 10 miles or so then drain it again, fill it again, drive it again, then drain it one more time and fill it. It's like flushing it, but you definately DO NOT go to the dealership and have them flush it with the machine. That's up to you if you want to use that much ATF by doing the 3x drain and fill. I think it's like $9 a quart. :eek: And as always, USE ONLY HONDA (ACURA) ATF.
