On the Transmission pan there is an Upper Fill Plug (Nut) on the Right Rear of the pan at the top. Fill until fluid starts coming out.

If you lift up the hood or the suv there will be a dipstick that u can pull out it is usually attached to the engine block. Some models just have a small cylinder with a twist cap to check.

How do i find the transmission fluid dip stick on a 2001 honda passport?


There is no dipstick. The engine and transmission was designed by Isuzu up till 2002, and the automatic transmission was a sealed, no-maint. transmission. You will either need to purchase the special tools needed, or...........that's right, go to a transmission shop!!!

2000 honda passport transmission slips when shifting


Manual transmission..?
If so it's time for new Clutch.
Automatic..?
If so check fluid. If fluid is level. It's time to rebuild.

2001 Passport with automatic has no dipstick for transmission, how do I check level and where do I add fluid


If you are looking to check the fluid levels and add transmission fluid you will need to first purchase a fluid pump at your local car repair store. Most run between $10 and 25$. For best results, run your car for a few minutes to bring the fluids to operating temperatures before attempting to add fluid. Be careful of hot surfaces and liquids.
It is difficult to check the level of fluid in the 2001 Honda passport because it lacks a dipstick. Instead, you will have to get underneath the car and check it at the Automatic Transmission fluid pan. This is located approximately below the center of the rear passengers seat on the underside of the car.
To check the fluid, remove the top most bolt on the automatic transmission fluid pan (most use a 3/4 inch socket). Use your finger or other object to see if the fluid level is at the same level as the drain plug. This can be difficult to do therefore it may be easier to add fluid until it is full to verify that you are at the correct levels.
To add fluid, remove the top most bolt on the automatic transmission fluid pan (most use a 3/4 inch socket). Using the fluid pump, slowly add transmission fluid until it starts to drip out. Replace the bolt. Take care not to over tighten the bolt.

If you want to be thorough, start your car and while your foot is on the brake, run your transmission through the gears slowly. Turn off your car. Remove the fill bolt and check the fluid level again. If it is not full see the previous steps. If your levels are OK, replace the bolt and you are good to go.

I have a honda passport (good condition) that has minor transmission fluid leak. It's hard to get the first gear going when it's cold and during stop and go situation...like stopping at traffic light!...


the transmission is probably going.You can try to take the bottom of the transmission pan off and change the fluid. add abottle of lucas transmission stop slip. also check the fluid and make sure there is some in there and it's at the proper level if not top it off and get the leak fixed. the fluid helps the gears so they dont clash together so hard and get a lot of matalic shavings in the trans the lower the fluid the more damage you do to the trans and the hotter your fluid gets and it burns up faster burnt fluid is the worst thing for your trans

How do you check trans fuild on honda passport 2001


Sorry to tell you this, but there is no dipstick. Honda says this in its maintenance materials:
Check automatic transmission fluid level only if leakage is suspected.
Automatic transmission has no dipstick, so fluid level can only be
measured by checking fluid temperature with a PGM Tester and removing
the overfill screw. Refer to the Service Manual for details.

1998 honda passport auto transmission slips


CHECK THE TRANSMISSION FLUID TO SEE IF IT IS LOW. THERE SHOULD BE A COLD LEVEL AND A HOT LEVEL. WITH THE TRANS IN PARK AND HOT, ENGINE RUNNING PULL THE DIPSTICK TO SEE IF THE TRANS NEEDS FLUID. WHEN ADDING, MAKE SURE THE PROPER FLUID IS USED. IF THE TRANS FLUID LEVEL IS OK BUT THE TRANS FLUID SMELLS BURNED OR IS VERY DARK THEN HAVE THE TRANSMISSION SERVICED WITH FLUID AND FILTER. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR ANY COMMENTS. BEST OF LUCK

Don't know how to check or change the transmission fluid in 1997 Honda Passport. Do I have to take it to a shop?


fluid level can only be checked from under the vehicle.there are two plugs on the transmission case,a drain plug & an 'overflow' plug. 'full' is level with the threads at the bottom of the overflow plug,as on a manual transmission.I've heard Honda ATF is recommended.filter is accessed by removing pan.
