there is no pan.

There's a plug that has a square hole in it, where a ratchet wrench fits in. Remove plug, drain, put on plug, refill from top.

Robbing the thread for a sec.

I'm gonna need a tranny fluid change and I wonder if I really need to use Honda's? I mean my last one was a Honda's but is it really necessary?

drain plug located at bottom of transmission (do'h) little toward front of the car, and only drain plug has square hole, so you can go wrong there.

feeler hole located on top of transmission (do'h again), it's 17mm bolt and its right in middle of transmission.

always use Honda's ATF Z-1, its about same price as aftermarket ATF may be little more expensive. one drain/refill require 2.6 quarts of ATF, so you would need to buy 3 quart of ATF to do one drain/refill.

hey, i read something on a post earlier on a diff thread.....something about vtec fluid.... WTF IS THAT??? ive never heard of it...are they friggin serious or are they being sarcastic??
VTEC fluid is a joke that people pull on newbees.

however VTEC system uses fluid to operated, but its nothing else but motor oil that you put in engine for it to operate. VTEC solenoid actually seats on oil filter housing and opens passage for oil to go up to cylinder head(s) and operate VTEC plunger which locks rockers for VTEC camshaft lobe

I believe 10k is the time to change.

That's how much I'm riding since my last change.
