How often should I...

How often should I change my transmission fluid and brake fluid in my 2016 Honda Pilot?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the last time your transmission fluid was checked? Changed?

My car has 40,000 miles on it. I don't think is had been changed.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pilot yourself? What have you tried so far?

No dealership.

HI,

2016 Honda Truck Pilot 2WD V6-3.5L (J35Y6)

Save Article

Change transmission fluid when maintenance minder 3 appears. The computer uses a complex formula including transmission temperature, mileage and avg speed to determine when transmission fluid is due for change

Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds or trailer towing results in higher transmission temperatures. This requires transmission fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the Maintenance Minder. If the vehicle is regularly driven under these conditions, have the transmission fluid changed at 30,000 miles (48,000 km).

Independent of the Maintenance Minder - Replace the brake fluid every 3 years.

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

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
