Customer Question
My question is how...

My question is how do i add trans fluid to my 2010 rdx. code po 847 just came on, and i checked the online forums. Seem its a trans pressure switch. I checked the fluid level with the engine off, and the fluid warm, and its just on the very bottom of the stick. The rdx has 136,000 miles on it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Thats all the details i have. it seems to shift just fine...

Reminder, I have not been paid at this point and won't be until I receive a positive rating from you. At that point I will receive a portion of what you've already paid Just Answer.

I service Honda/Acura vehicles 5 days a week so I know the brand very well. If you checked the fluid warm and it was near the bottom mark I would not be very concerned with adding fluid. This is not enough to be an issue. The problem here is a faulty 3rd gear pressure switch. I see this very often on not only this model, but many other Honda/Acura models. The fluid is not the issue here, it's just a faulty pressure switch. I will include a picture of the pressure switch. I will also include a link to view the part, part number, and pricing. This will save you time in getting the correct part.

You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there aren't additional charges for posting to this thread after you rate so we can keep chatting. Thanks!!

Part will be #12 in the following link. There are two different pressure switches. The 3rd is on the lower part of the transmission.

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.

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
