Question about Honda Civic
Sure, but be prepared to have a out of fluid coming of of the pan. Make sure that the catch pan you have can hold like 12 qt of fluid.
Jack up and secure car. Look at e the bottom of the trans. You will see a ban with about 20 bolts. You need to take all but like 3 out. The three that are left need to be loosened carefully or you will have a large mess. Ideally you want a triangle shape for the bolts that are left. Loosen 1 point of the triangle, do not remove. Take a putty knife and break the seal between the pan and case. Don't stick knife in to far 1/2" is more than enough. This is where it can get messy if not careful. Let fluid out into catch pan. Take the pan off, and clean off any gasket material. Inspect the pan to see if there are any dimples in the pan by the bolts. if the are take a ball pein hammer and tap then out flush or just past flush. This will mike sure that it seals on the gasket and doesn't bottom out on the pan. Do the same for the trans case. This is a good time to change the filter if you choose. You can use a good automotive silicone, or buy a gasket to reseal the pan up. Add new fluid until it is past the full mark on dipstick. Start motor and top off as needed. This will change approx 50% of the tranny fluid. The only way to get 100% is to get it flushed with a machine at a garage.
Hope that helps
