Hello there:
when you have the transmission flushed they hook a machine up to the vehicle and **** out the old fluid and than put in new fluid in under pressure and fill it totally up than they re pet the process 3 or 4 times
this ensures that the entire transmission is clean and of dirt
Advantage is you get very clean oil and all of the parts inside of the transmission are as clean as they can possibly get
the disadvantage is that it can be costly and takes about 30 minutes to complete
I really think it is well worth it though
I really hope that this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Flush is a total fluid exchange. Topping off is filling the unit when level has become low. Total exchange involves equipment to replenish all fluid. A drain and refill will not get all of the fluid exchanged due to a couple quarts are in the torque converter.

I bought honda accord recently 2004 model. Everything working fine. Cruise control and all electronics working fine. But it jerk in first and second gear then it pick up the power. When i want to speedup...


This problem is caused by disparity between Vehicle speed and Transmission RPM preset for that speed. Transmission automatically shifts gears smoothly when car reaches a preset speed, set by the manufacturer. If either the shift solenoid is not responding or the Transmission is slipping JERK will be experienced. First check fluid levels and change fluid if it has not been changed in the last 45,000 miles. Since you just bought the car you have no knowledge. Do not do Transmission flush if you have over 100,000 miles. Only do drain and fill with Honda Fluid. Only Drain and fill is recommended so as not to wash away/disturb the friction material by power flushing. During drain and fill add a bottle of Torgue multiplier fluid available in Auto part stores. If this does not work then take it to a Transmission shop for them to diagnose.

What type of auto-xsmsn fluid. How do you check it. Do you check the fluid level with the car running in Park? What type of fluid Dot3 or ?


Vehicle running, and i park, yes. Use ONLY Honda ATF fluid. This fluid is different than standard auto transmission fluid, and if a not approved fluid it will surely damage the transmission. Ask the Honda dealer for the equivalency in case they dont have it stock. The type my Accord uses is equivalent to Dexron VI , but Honda carries more than one ATF type.

How to flush transmission on 93 honda accord?


Honda does not recommend flushing the transmission. Simply drain it and add the correct Honda (or Honda Approved Import Transmission Fluid) according to your manual. Let it heat up and with the brakes on, run it through all of the gears. Keep checking the level according to your manual. Are there other symptoms, check engine light, D light flashing, S light flashing, etc?

Auto Trans 96


Sounds like radiator problem mixing coolant with oil. Will need to change rad, flush transmission thoroughly to remove contaminated fluid, being sure torque converter flushed as well, then re-assemble everything, & put new fluid & filter in transmission, and hope like heck, too much damage hasn't already occurred. This might be a job for a tranny shop that can flush that system properly, if you have one in area that you trust.

"is there a plug to drain tranny fluid on a 94 accord with auto


You must either drop the pan or have a transmission flush performed. The filter is only a screen so most people use a transmission flush for this issue.
