Hi bowman
Not much on those youtube links that have anything to do with you want :)
 You are better off to invest in a workshop manual for these types of adjustments to a car of this nature.  I suggest here or get a Honda original manual. There is not alot about in PDF format. Is worth getting if you really want to maintain the vehicle, then sell on ebay when you sell the car. Happy to help you futher with this, just let me know. 
regards Robotek

Does a torque converter for 03 grand am absolutely have to be replaced at a shop?


No, but you need to be very sure you know what your'e doing and
have the right tools, the right safety devices etc. How do you know the converter needs to be replaced? Get a second and third opinion. They are rarely the failing element. See my tip on Automatic transmissions.

I have Civic 2001 with 160,000 miles on it. i have problem when i am driving on high way on 80/mph rpm stay on 2800 and after 5 minuts rpm goes to 3500 and i feel loud noise like engine is taking more...


If the car type is manual transmission:
- Perform the clutch and pressure plate test.
PROCEDURE:
- Pull up the hand brake, shift the lever to 1st gear, rev up to 2000 rpm, release the clutch pedal at once.
- If the engine does not stall, replace the clutch, pressure plate, clutch bearing, regrind the fly wheel and pressure plate precisely.
- If the engine stalls, the clutch system is OK and do not need any clutch system repairing.
- If the clutch system is OK, check vacuum leaks through intake manifold, vacuum hoses, PCV valve and throttle control cable adjustment, MAP sensor and Throttle Plate Position sensor adjustment (9.8 percent or 0 degrees at TP sensor fully closed position).

If the car type is automatic transmission:
- Check the transmission control cable adjustment.
- Check vacuum leaks through intake manifold, vacuum hoses, PCV valve and throttle control cable adjustment, MAP sensor and Throttle Plate Position sensor adjustment (9.8 percent or 0 degrees at TP sensor fully closed position).
- Check the Automatic Transmission Fluid level in the transmission with the car on level floor, engine start, gear lever in P.
If the problem persists, contact a competent technician or service personnel.

My vehicle has 107,00 miles on it what should I do to tune it up/


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. At your mileage, it is time to do a tune up anyway. You are going to want to change your serpentine belts. You will want to change your spark plugs/coils, wires, coil packs, distributor cap. You are going to want to change the transmission fluid and filter. Also, flush your radiator and change the coolant. You will want to purchase a new fuel filter and air filter also. It would be a good time for a new PCV valve to. If you want to balance the front end and tires, I would do it. If not, the tune up should increase engine performance. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and thanks for using FixYa.

On the 2004 Element. Do you have to change the timing belt at a particular time ; or does it have a Chain?


Honda element has a Timing Chain, and Honda doesn't even recommending looking at it till something like 110,000 or 120,000 miles.
However, it is this an "interference" engine, meaning that if the chain or belt fails it could destroy the valve train and even the pistons.
Because it is an interference engine. I plan to change my chain at 100K, since I expect the car to go at least 200K but don't expect the chain to last that long.
Normally cars has Tune ups scheduled at 30K, 60, and 90K. As the rule of the thumb at 90K Tune up mechanic shops recommend timing Belt or Chain to be replaced. We can go for longer taking the risk.

Transmission not pulling very well, fluid ok was


Honda Civic 01 has a defetive torque converter that prematurely fails. Same issue with the Odyssey 03 to 05. (The difference is Odyssey got a recall whereas the Civic did not). When it does, debris gets into the transmisson thereby clogging the filter and sometimes ruins the gears. There is no drop pans for this type of transmission and the filter is located inside the transmission housing itself which renders it to be serviceable by transmission shops ONLY. Most often, when the torque converter fails, the entire transmission will need to be overhauled or replaced. A cost that could run from $850 for a rebuilt to $2000 for an OEM. The best cost effective way to remedy this siuation is to replace the torque converter before the mileage reaches to 100K. A rebuilt one only cost $120 or $700 for an OEM with labor ranging around $350. Far cheaper than a transmission replacement. If your Civic 01 is still running and it is beyond 100K, run fast to a transmission shop and replace the torque converter immediately. If the transmission is already starting to slip, replace the torque conventer and flush the transmission and pray that the tranny was not significantly damaged by the debri. Remember, the recommended trans fluid change for Civic is 120K / 6 yrs or 30K / 6 months if driving in severe conditions.

Transmission fluid change, how much fluid, what kind are there any filters.


Hi. This particular vehicle will hold approximately 3.4 Quarts of standard automatic transmission fluid. The filter must be changed, as well. If you are running the 4wd version of this vehicle, I would recommended the Lucas Semi-Synthetic Multi Vehicle ATF brand. For a 2wd unit, I would recommend the Castrol High Mileage ATF brand.

NOTE_ Most manufactures will require a special transmission oil fill tool. This is usually not available to the general public. In this case, you will need to refer to your dealer for proper procedure. Usually there will be a transmission dip stick visible under the hood area if your transmission oil can be changed with the more familiar procedures used throughout the years. Additionally, if this is a standared transmission. Any gear oil will do. Preferably differential gear oil(standard blend)

I took the car in for an oil change and they told me it need a transmission flush, the fluid was terrible and burnt looking and needed an upper in take clean. The car has 120,000 miles on it, but we aren't...


Hi,
Based on your description of the color and amount of miles on the car, I'd say do it. The flush will purge all the old fluid in your valve body too, that wouldn't simply drain out when they drain the fluid. It might make your car happy :o)
Hey... I love my '03 Toyota Corolla with 151k miles.
Hope this helps...
