when looking at the engine with the hood up, look to the right hand side for something that looks like this (#1 in the pic): http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=ET37&mospid=47720&btnr=32_0957&hg=32&fg=20

it will be black in color, but don't confuse it with the oil filter housing. power steering reservoir will have a unique cap (#2 in the pic) that can be removed with your hand. the one that has the large nut on top is the oil filter. remove the cap and put in the correct fluid.

hope this helped.

SOURCE: 2005 Honda Pilot 75,000 transmission fluid change

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

SOURCE: power steering fluid leaking.

With the engine switched off. Go under the car and clean of all the fluid you find. Now start the car and turn the steering wheel from full lock to full lock. Switch off the engine and go under the car and you should see the area of the fluid leek. With this information you can then decide how to tackle the repair.

SOURCE: Knock Sensor installation for 2003 Honda Pilot

I don't know where the knock sensor is exactly on this engine, but if you buy the replacement first it will help you identify it.

It's screwed into the block near the head or the head itself. It has an electrical connector attached to it (two wires, I believe).

The replacement is pretty simple: remove the electrical connector from the old one; screw it out with a wrench; screw the new one in and; plug the connector onto it.

Should I change the transmission fluid on my 2003 Honda Pilot that has 100,000 miles?


Yes, and make sure you use genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid, not aftermarket. Get an 18mm drain plug gasket while toy are at the dealer. This would be a drain and fill only, it holds 3.0 or 3.5 quarts. Do not flush, Honda states this is not good, and they are correct. If it has never been changed, you might consider doing it twice, drain and fill, drive it, drain and fill.

2003 accord V6 power steering noise when cold, stops when warmed up?


Try to get a power steering fluid flush, there may be contaminants in the fluid
Make sure someone has not put the wrong fluid in the vehicle.
If the problem started after the fluid had been low there may be damage to the pump

Heavy stiff steering on 2003 honda civic


Most likely a bad steering rack
That is what happens, when you don't change your P/S Fluid
Change fluid and add Lubgard Honda (only) Additive--found at auto parts store.
Use correct honda fluid also

My 2003 honda pilot is difficult to shift into drive


There could be a number of issues with a Honda Pilot not shifting into drive. In fact, I had this problem with my 2003 Honda Pilot two weeks ago and had to replace my transmission. More than 100,000 2003 Honda Pilots were recalled in 2004 because of a transmission problem -- was your Honda part of that recall? If so, Honda may help you with some of the costs.

If the problem is not with the transmission, I suggest making sure that your steering column is not locked. You will also notice that on the top of the steering column is a small plate. If you remove the plate and press down with a coin, you can unlock the steering column, enabling you to shift into drive.

Hopefully these solutions will help...but be sure to see your auto service shop for more details on your situation.

Have 115,000 miles on car ..when for an oil change and was told I needed to change transmission fluid and power steering fluid....Cannot locate my manual...when do these fluids need to be changed and is...


Regarding the transmission, if you have an automatic, use genuine Honda ATF fluid only and only do a drain and refill. A power flush will damage the Honda Transmission. It should be drained and refilled every 60k initially, then every 30k afterwards.
