Not necessarily. It can be good or bad. If your vehicle has been serviced this way regularly than it should be no problem. If it hasn't the possibility exists that the machine pressure along with the "chemicals used" can dislodge particles ( build up from 11 years) that cannot pass thru the valve body and can cause premature internal failure (your trans mission could suffer a stroke). Your choice - new method which is easier and cheaper for the shop, or have them drop the pan and change the filter. good luck

I have a 2002 honda accord sedan lx. the transmission is not doing right, and i noticed i dont have to push the button to change from drive 4 to drive 3. also i had a transmission flush 2 months ago...


Shifter in my 99 Honda goes from D4 to D3 without pushing button also. I 'NEVER' recommend flushing transmissions, it will always cause problems. I've been rebuilding transmissions for 25 years now, flushing causes all the buit-up contaminates to stop up the filter, which cannor be changed on Hondas. I have to admit though I get 'ALOT' of work since the introduction of flushing machines. Good luck.

How to change trans fluid on a 2005 CRV. Also , is it necessary to flush transmission?


It is best to flush the trans. Lube shops have a machine that does it. The reason, is that there is fluid in cooling lines, rad cooler, and torque converter that does not get changed without flush. My preference is to flush, then change filter.

I have a honda cr-v automatic gear box it drives but it can't go reverse when you put the reverse gear. what is the problem?


Has the Transmission fluid been changed every 30,000 with Honda ATF-Z1?

If some one has put in GM Dexron III in it instead, the transmission may not shift properly and it can damage the transmission over time.

Also if some Express/Quick Lub place has flushed your Honda Transmission Dexron III or any type of Flushing agents, it's probally going to have to be replaced. Google "flushing Honda transmission" or MSN under "Express lub Transmission flush Fraud". Those back flow flushers systems damage the internal valves of many modern transmissions, both import and domestic and have NEVER been recommended.

Suggest taking it by a Honda Dealership or a aftermarket Honda/Acura ASE Certified Shop.

Honda recommends Honda ATF-Z1 Transmission Fluid or a Dexron III ATF as a temporary replacement -- which should be flushed from the system and replaced with the Honda ATF-Z1.

Change;
2WD model -- 3.1 US QT or 2.9 L.
4WD model -- 3.3 US QT or 3.1 L.

Total;
2WD model -- 6.9 US QT or 6.5 L.
4WD model -- 7.6 US QT or 7.2 L.
