Question about Honda Accord

Wheel spins when car is in neutral

I replaced the engine in my 1997 honda accord LX, reatached the same atuomatic transaxle and filled it with fluid. I let the car idle to heat up the transmission fluid and added some till the dipstick read full. I then put the car in neutral. I was stunned to see the front right wheel turning. What might be the cause of this delima.

    The Car is off the ground, tired stopping the rotor with using my foot but the wheel continued to spin. Would too much automatic transmission fluid cause this?

    Put foot on brake & run through gears, does it put load on engine when in neutral similar to drive?

    Shifter or cable need adjustment? Was wheel off ground and if yes, did you try to stop it with your foot or something?

It is normal for the wheels to spin in neutral with the wheels off the ground for all Honda automobiles with auto trans.

How do you check da transmission fluid on my 1997ford thunderbird


Your car should be running, in Neutral, with the wheels chocked and your parking brake on (safety first). Then simply pull out the stick with the vehicle running in neutral to check the fluid level. Any amount in the hatched area is acceptable. DO NOT overfill and only fill as needed. Make sure the engine is up to normal operating temperature before checking the level

1996 Honda Accord EX Manual trans. Where is oil level plug. what kind of oil?


Hi there,

All Honda manual transaxles use the Honda Manual Transmission Fluid (MTF) as the original factory fill. This oil is similar to a 10W-30 or 10W-40 viscosity engine oil, and this oil can be substituted temporarily. However, the manufacturer recommends the use of their MTF when changing the fluid.

Level Check

The transaxle fluid should be changed every 90,000 miles (144,000 km) or 6 years under normal driving conditions. In severe driving conditions the fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) or every 2 years, whichever occurs first.
Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface. If the vehicle is raised, make sure the vehicle is safely supported and level

NOTE: Do not confuse the drain plug with the fill plug.
The fill plug is in the mid section of the transaxle. The drain plug is near the bottom of the transaxle.
  1. The oil level is checked by removing the oil fill plug on the side of the transaxle. The transaxle fluid should just meet the lower threads of the transaxle fill hole.
  2. Remove the oil level check bolt from the side of the transaxle. If oil runs out, or if oil can be felt near the threaded fill hole opening, reinstall and retighten the bolt to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  3. If the level needs to be topped off, pour oil in slowly until it begins to run out then, install and tighten the filler bolt to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).

Honda accord lx 1996 6 transmission dipstick


For the V-6 model, the dipstick is located down low on the transaxle, on the drivers side of the car, if it is low, usually 1 pint of of fluid is needed to raise from low notch to high notch. also if it appears to be dark or burnt, smells burnt, you should replace the tranaxle fluid. Good Luck!

Automatic or manual? May be low transmission fluid, or (less likely) bad CV joint. Have mechanic get it up on the lift and check for leaks, then spin the tires, see if the noise will manifest itself.
