    there is no lower pan on this transmission. i was told the filter was between the upper and lower unit in the trans. very odd. not like normal trans. so, ive removed tie rod and loosened bolts to separate the trans. housing. but not top ones yet. thats where im at so far

  • loveskunk200 Jan 28, 2009

    nope. the tranny housing is only in 2 pieces. a left and a right. the filter is internal. this is not like any trans. out there. extreamly unique.
    the actual filter is between the upper and lower unit of the trans.
    all this im very aware of all ready. my q. actually is if i needed to completly remove the trans. from the engine, or can i remove the rear part of the housing and get to it while still in car.

    lol, yes, thank you , unfortunately , this ive known. but i know that the filter is clogged. and needs it removed. this is something i know for sure. is it possible for me to split the case open and get the the filter without completely removing the entire trans. from the car? and i do wanna thank you for your time so far.

    perhaps the pan is mounted on the side of the tranny ...

I have good news and bad news.....good news acura does not use a common trans pan.the transaxle does have a brass filtering element inside the trans between the cases and acura never recommends replacement untill the trans is overhauled .bad news you propably did some unecessary work so far.just remove the drain bolt on the side of the case and refill at the dip stick approx 3 qts,check your handbook for EXACT fluid and amount.

Is the harmonic balancer on a 1992 acura legend tapered

No, it is not. Acura, and Honda Harmonic balancers, (the crank pulley), come off fairly easily once unbolted. Sometimes you have to pry on them a little, but I've never had any difficulty removing them.

Procedure for fluid change and filter 9/89 acura legend

The oil filter is a twist-on for this year and is near the passenger front tire. There is room for an oil filter wrench but it may come off by hand. The drain plug is in the center of the pan facing the rear of the car. Add 4 quarts and check.
If you change the transmission fluid only use Honda approved. You won't get too much out of an automatic, but it would extend the life of the trans.

Just want to know how much oil going in the tranny of a honda accord 1992 automatic

The automatic trans on your 1992 Honda Accord holds a total of 6.4 quarts, and 2.5 quarts on a filter replacement, so the torque converter and the rest of the trans retains about 4 quarts.

Tranny removal

I'm assuming that you haven't found the mystery trans. to engine bolt. Remove the rear trans. mount. Just below the trans mount is an engine to trans. bolt.
