Fluid level can only be checked from under the vehicle.there are two plugs on the transmission case,a drain plug & an 'overflow' plug. 'full' is level with the threads at the bottom of the overflow plug,as on a manual transmission.I've heard Honda ATF is recommended.filter is accessed by removing pan.

I change the transmission filter and fluid to my 97 4×4 Honda passport. Now it won't go in any gear and seems to always be in neutral. I have no idea??????

You may have missed a small gasket for the transmission filter, and the transmission may be sucking air instead of transmission fluid. Re-check your work, and make sure that ALL GASKETS are present, however small, and make certain you have not over-torqued any bolts holding the transmission filter into the valve body.

How do i find the transmission fluid dip stick on a 2001 honda passport?

There is no dipstick. The engine and transmission was designed by Isuzu up till 2002, and the automatic transmission was a sealed, no-maint. transmission. You will either need to purchase the special tools needed, or...........that's right, go to a transmission shop!!!

Transmission sounds funny. I am wondering if low in fluid. I cant find transmission check stick.

There is no dipstick on these vehicles. you need to have the tranny flushed and filled at a tranny shop.

How do you put transmission fluid in a 1997 honda passport

If you have a dipstick for the transmission fluid, you can pour it in very slowly through there.
Otherwise, on the upper side of your transmission, there will be a plug that you pull off and fill the fluid up until it just starts to spill out before you close the plug

Locating transmission fluid

I believe those transmissions are computer controlled. There should be a light that comes on when you need to put more fluid in. Only way to actually KNOW how much is in there is to change the tranny filter/pan gasket and see how much drains out

How to fill automatic transmission on '97 Honda Passport 4X4

There is a metal fitting bolt close to the bottom of the transmission. You can unscrew that out and if transmission fluid comes out it's good. If this doesn't occur you'll have to get a pump and pump transmission fluid in it. This is the easiest with a lift of course. Don't you hate stupid Japanese ideas. Good luck man
