ATF Level CheckNOTE: Keep all foreign particles out of the transmission.
|1.||Warm up the engine to normal operating temperature (the radiator fan comes on).|
|2.||Park the vehicle on the level ground, and turn the engine off.|
NOTE: Check the fluid level within 60-90 seconds after turning the engine off.
|3.||Remove the dipstick (yellow loop) (A), and wipe it with a clean cloth.|
|4.||Insert the dipstick into the transmission.|
|5.||Remove the dipstick (A) and check the fluid level. It should be between upper mark (B) and lower mark (C).|
|6.||If the level is below the lower mark, check for fluid leaks at the transmission, ATF filter, ATF warmer, hose, line, and line joints. If a problem is found, fix it before filling the transmission. If the level is above the upper mark, drain the ATF to proper level.|
|7.||If necessary, fill the transmission with the recommended fluid into the dipstick hole (A) 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.|
|8.||Insert the dipstick back into the transmission.|
