Q: Changing transmission fluid on a Honda

asked by on

2000 Honda CRV 190,000 miles. I'm going to change transmission fluid and I've heard the proper way on a Honda, is to drain, fill, drive for ten miles, repeat three times. Is this needed?

If the transmission fluid is dirty, you can go ahead and try that. Hondas don’t have real filters installed in them so you’re not changing the filter, you’re just changing fluid. However, whatever you do, only use Honda transmission fluid because Hondas are very particular with the type of fluid that they use.
