Hi There, I'm Clayso a certified master automobile technician with 30 years of automotive repair and diagnostic experience and I'm here to help with this problem. Additional services may be offered for detailed information.
The proper procedure for checking and filling transmission fluid:
1. Warm up the engine to normal operating temperature.
2. Park the vehicle on the level ground. Turn off the engine.
3. Remove the dipstick from the transmission and wipe it clean.
4. Insert the dipstick into the transmission.
5. Remove the dipstick and check the fluid level.
The fluid level should be between the upper mark and lower mark.
6. If the level is below the lower mark, add Honda automatic transmission fluid into the filler hole to bring it to the upper mark.
The link below illustrates the upper and lower marks on the dipstick.

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
