Re: 2005 Honda Pilot 75,000 transmission fluid change
The bottom pan comes off and there is a pan filter that is contained in this assy. It drains from there it cannot be pumped out. They simply remove the pan and let it drain,only about 60% of the fluid actually drains out but the filter is what is important to replace to lengthen the trani life. I wouldn'ty pay more than 100-150 bucks tops for this transmission maintenance.(although it is well worth it) Good Luck

The transmission cooler is located inside the radiator on pilots, they are notorious for rotting out and leaking ATF into the radiator and vice versa. This wil quickly lead to your transmission seals failing and destroying your transmission. Happened to my wife's pilot and got Honda to split the bill
It is best to flush the trans. Lube shops have a machine that does it. The reason, is that there is fluid in cooling lines, rad cooler, and torque converter that does not get changed without flush. My preference is to flush, then change filter.
IT IS FLASHING A TRANSMISSION CODE OR LETTING YOU KNOW THE TRANS. SYSTEM HAS DETECTED A FAULT IS IT DRIVING DIFFERENT IF SO YOU MAY WANT YOUR LOCAL SHOP WETHER DEALER OR INDEPENDENT LOOK AT IT MAYBE CHECK TRANSMISSION FOR DTC DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES UNLESS YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO THIS YOURSELF
Hello rsl4god.....Yes indeed without doubt... you should change transmission fluid regularly using only original Honda transmission fluid. This is a simple drain & refill job on the Odyssey . Heres my take on transmission fluid...Trans fluid is the life blood of your transmission. A quality trans fluid is more important to your trans than a quality oil is to your engine. As heat in the trans goes up, the life of the fluid (and your trans) goes down. Sadly most people ignore the transmission until it breaks. Hope this answers your question...
Hi sounds like a problem I was starting to have in my 04 Accord. It would shutter terribly between gears. We had changed trans. fluid every 60k miles but evidently that wasn't good enough. I was shopping for a trans when I talked to my mechanic and he recommended new fluid. We drained and refilled trans twice and now drain and refill trans pan every other oil change ( about 20k w/ synthetic). After the fluid change trans. is doin great. Don't run and go pay for a trans flush at a local shop. I worked at a very highend dealership as a service writer and trust me it is a rip. In your honda you have drain plug just drain and refill, then run, repeat. It will do the same thing just takes a little longer. I have 190k on "The 04" now and it just won't quit! Honda's Rock!
