2.Park the vehicle on the level ground, and turn the engine off.

3.Remove the drain plug (A), and drain the automatic transmission fluid (ATF).


4.Reinstall the drain plug with a new sealing washer (B).

5.Refill the transmission with the recommended fluid into the dipstick hole to bring it to the upper mark on the dipstick. Always use genuine Honda ATF-Z1 automatic transmission fluid (ATF). Using a non-Honda ATF can affect shift quality.
