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 level ground, and turn the engine off.

3.Remove the dipstick (yellow loop) (A) from the transmission, and wipe it with a clean cloth.


4.Insert the dipstick back into the transmission.

5.Remove the dipstick (A) and check the fluid level. It should be at upper mark (B).


6.If the level is below the upper mark, check for fluid leaks at the transmission, hose and line joints, and cooler lines.

7.Pour the recommended fluid amount into the dipstick hole to bring it to the upper mark. Always use Genuine Honda ATF-Z1 Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). Using a non-Honda ATF can affect shift quality.

8.Insert the dipstick (A) back into the transmission with facing the handle toward the breathe tube (B).
