ATF Level Check

NOTE: 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, 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 with the letters ‘‘ATF'' pointing toward the front of the vehicle.
