usually a pan under the trans. anywhere from 10 to 22 bolts. filter inside. some vehicles have an oil style filter on the externally, but i don't think that this is one.

I just changed my oil on my RAV4 V6 and the first thing is you are not looking for the regular canister but a oil housing like on the old farm tractors. You just replace the inside filter cartridge. The canister is in front on the engine on the passenger side. Use a 3/8 socket to open the bottom and drain. Next use a oil filter cap wrench to remove the housing. Actully this is a less messy than my chevy and more "green."

I would not recommend using Dexron III. Honda Odysseys are prone to transmission problems. A drain and fill with Genuine Honda Fluid is Recommended. The drain plug can be removed with a 3/8 ratchet at the bottom of the trans. The fill hole is at the top of the trans. You remove it with a socket on a long extension. The capacity is close to 3 quarts

You will have to remove the rear end plate off of the back of the rear end. Then turn the carrier untill you see a big silver pin that goes through the spider gears. Those will be 4 small gears in the rear end carrier. If you look at the right side of the carrier were the pin goes through it you will see a small bolt head, That bolt goes through the carrier and holds the pin in place. Remove that bolt then reach up in the rear end housing and push the pin towards you untill it comes out. ( DO NOT TURN ANYTHING AFTER YOU REMOVE THE PIN) are the spider gears will fall out.
Now get someone to push the axel in while you are looking at the 4 small gears in the housing, when they push the axel in a C-clip will fall off the end of the axel and into the rear end, You will see it fall out. Then just pull the axel out.
When you put the axel back in, push it all the way in then slide the c-clip over the end of the axel and then pull out on axel and that will hold the clip in place untill you put the big long pin back in the carrier. I hope you understand, just watch what you are doing. GOOD LUCK.

First you have to get break all your knuckles trying to get the shift linkage out, to do that there is two T40 Torx screws on the top side of the oil pan (driver side) second you have to manage to get the drain plug, easier said then done. The pieces of **** at chevy torque it down to like a 100 ft poulds. Better go get a new plug before you even start, its about 8 bucks. Then remove the 20 or so bolts holding the pan up... Your life is made easier if you remove the drive shaft (4x4) which unless you are magic you must remove the exaust pipe.... All and all its not a fun job... it pretty much sucks. Once all is out you can remove the fluid filter, make sure you remove the O'ring as well.... Then put it all together.... its way easier said then done... When ur finished add on to your to do list to "Punch a Chevy engineer in the face."
