Hello rsl4god.....Yes indeed without doubt... you should change transmission fluid regularly using only original Honda transmission fluid. This is a simple drain & refill job on the Odyssey
.
Heres my take on transmission fluid...Trans fluid is the life blood of your transmission. A quality trans fluid is more important to your trans than a quality oil is to your engine. As heat in the trans goes up, the life of the fluid (and your trans) goes down. Sadly most people ignore the transmission until it breaks.
Hope this answers your question...

    Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) needs to be changed according to the owners manual. For a 2005 Odyssey it is every 30,000 miles. You just need to buy 4 quarts of ATF from a Honda Dealer, believe it is Z1 and only need to put in 3.5 quarts. The drain plug is located towards the driver side tire. It is a blue colored 18mm nut they just insert a 3/8" socket wrench directly into the nut, no socket adapter needs to be put on it. Push it towards the back of the van (counter clockwise) to open, drain. Take the oil to a recycle center, check with Kragen O'reilly or Autozone near you. Then tighten nut toward front of the van. Then take out dipstick for automatic transmission fluid check on the right near the battery and fill 3.5 quarts through that 1/4" pipe opening. You can either make a cardboard funnel or buy one from an auto shop and make a small cardboard funnel on end so it does not drip. You are now good for another 30,000 miles! The new ATF fluid is pinkish red and you can see when you change oil it has lost that pinkish hue.

The bottom pan comes off and there is a pan filter that is contained in this assy. It drains from there it cannot be pumped out. They simply remove the pan and let it drain,only about 60% of the fluid actually drains out but the filter is what is important to replace to lengthen the trani life. I wouldn'ty pay more than 100-150 bucks tops for this transmission maintenance.(although it is well worth it) Good Luck

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

SOURCE: 2007 honda odyssey oil change and

Have supplies ready(long stem funnel to reachfill hole, 4 qts honda genuine atf-z1, rags for drips)
1. First, park the car while its hot on a flat surface and turn the engine off. Locate the yellow transmission dipstick and remove it and wipe it clean.
2. Look for the the ATF fill plug and washer(below and to the left of the brake fluid reservoir) 17mm marked "ATF" and remove it.
3. Locate the drain plug(not the one on pointing towards the drivers front tire but its located on on the drivers side of the transmission pointing towards the passengers side and lying horizontally) and remove it along with the washer. Its blue and is a standard 3/8 square drive plug and remove it. Drain completely. (wait 15 min or so until ALL is gone and replace the plug after throughly cleaning the magnet that is attached to it).
5. Replace atf fluid(honda says 3.3 qts- but mine took 3.8 to bring to first hole in dipstick level-check while running(use honda z-1 fluid only-yes- its expensive).
6. Replace fill bolt and washer and tighten.
7. Replace dipstick, let engine get hot and recheck. Recheck again after driving a day or so.
Your done-good work, you saved a $100 dollars...

It can be changed for every 60000 miles..

Honda has different service package reminders programmed in the computer. Contact your local dealer or your owners manual. B3 will be an oil change and probably some other fluid checks or changes.

Where do you put transmission fluid into the transmission?


First you have to drain old fluid.

The drain plug is towards the front of the transmission.
The refill port is closed by a bolt located at the top of the transmission

Nope. There is a drain plug on the transmission case. It is a simple drain and fill. Odyssey transmissions do not have a filter.

Where to put in transmission fluid on my 2000 Honda Odyssey


You have a choice! You can use a small funnel and a narrow tube and try to fill through the dipstick tube hole or you can locate the actual fill plug and remove it to gain access to the fill hole. The plug looks like the top of a large bolt and is located on the top of the transmission aft of where the dipstick tube goes in. You will need a long funnel with a narrow opening or a tube to deliver the fluid into the hole.

Change the fluid. Since you only get about half of the fluid to drain during a change (the rest is held in the torque converter with no way to drain it), you will have to change the fluid three times in order to dilute the "dirty" fluid with enough clean fluid to make the end product mostly clean. Change the fluid, then run the car for awhile. Repeat two more times. And only use Honda fluid.
