Automatic? You should run to operating temp., drain fluid, refill. Is there anything else going on w/ your Honda that would be a reason to flush the tranny? What year and engine? countrycurt0

How to flush transmission on 93 honda accord?

Honda does not recommend flushing the transmission. Simply drain it and add the correct Honda (or Honda Approved Import Transmission Fluid) according to your manual. Let it heat up and with the brakes on, run it through all of the gears. Keep checking the level according to your manual. Are there other symptoms, check engine light, D light flashing, S light flashing, etc?

Have a 2006 Honda Accord auto. What is the difference between and transmission flush or just topping it with fluid. What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Flush is a total fluid exchange. Topping off is filling the unit when level has become low. Total exchange involves equipment to replenish all fluid. A drain and refill will not get all of the fluid exchanged due to a couple quarts are in the torque converter.

My 93 accord shifts erratically. it drops rpm and seems like the transmission is slipping

First off, did you happen to change the fluid lately and use anything but Honda ATF-Z1. If you did that is your problem. You must use genuine Honda ATF-Z1 or shifting problems will result. Even if you did not use a non Honda fluid, I suggest you have the fluid changed and the transmission flushed. You may end up needing a transmission rebuild but it is worth trying a fluid/filter change first.

I have a honda cr-v automatic gear box it drives but it can't go reverse when you put the reverse gear. what is the problem?

Has the Transmission fluid been changed every 30,000 with Honda ATF-Z1?

If some one has put in GM Dexron III in it instead, the transmission may not shift properly and it can damage the transmission over time.

Also if some Express/Quick Lub place has flushed your Honda Transmission Dexron III or any type of Flushing agents, it's probally going to have to be replaced. Google "flushing Honda transmission" or MSN under "Express lub Transmission flush Fraud". Those back flow flushers systems damage the internal valves of many modern transmissions, both import and domestic and have NEVER been recommended.

Suggest taking it by a Honda Dealership or a aftermarket Honda/Acura ASE Certified Shop.

Have 115,000 miles on car ..when for an oil change and was told I needed to change transmission fluid and power steering fluid....Cannot locate my manual...when do these fluids need to be changed and is...

Regarding the transmission, if you have an automatic, use genuine Honda ATF fluid only and only do a drain and refill. A power flush will damage the Honda Transmission. It should be drained and refilled every 60k initially, then every 30k afterwards.
