Question about 2002 Honda Passport

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Honda Passport EX and I'm having issues with the transmission. First, of all, I don't know where the dipstick for the fluid is so I can't check the level. Second, I don't know where to pour the fluid because I can't find the area. I've been having issues with the transmission when I hit 75mph. The transmission would lightly **** and then the "check trans" light blinks on/off until I turn off the engine. Also, when that happens, my RPM would not go past 3000rpm, it would jump between 2 and 3 rpm and I would not get enough power. I'm thinking it's a sensor somewhere, if not, then the transmission is slipping. I also try to scan it, but nothing comes up on the computer.

The transmission fluid dipstick is under the hood,probably back within a foot of the firewall.To check it,you run your car for about 10 minutes,leave it running,then pull the dipstick out,wipe it off,and put it back in and out to get a good level.I usually do it a few more times just to make sure.But,guess what.All this technology and yet you have to also fill it up through that same tiny tube.If you have a steady hand,it shouldn't be too messy though.You may want to buy a funnel though for future possiblities.If you have to buy some fluid,just in case you do not know,you need to read the back of the tranny fluid containers for your make car.I think if the transmission were slipping,wouldn't it be all gears?I have had a stick for so long I can't remember.I blew one about 20 years ago.Since clutches are so much cheaper to replace,I went with that.Good luck!

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!!!

I have a 1996 Honda passport with automatic transmission but I cannot the dip stick for the transmission fluid so I can check it. I would to know where it is .


There is NO DIPSTICK in the engine compartment.

On the side of the transmission, there are two plugs. You remove both plugs and fill one side with fluid, (not sure which side), until the fluid comes out the other drain plug hole.

One is lower than the other. Open the lower plug hole. If fluid begins to come out, then it's full.

I would suggest to leave it alone unless you suspect a real problem Do you see trans fluid on your driveway ? etc:

Reports indicate, do not leave trans fluid change too long for this vehicle. Check you hand book for proper interval.

How do you check trans fuild on honda passport 2001


Sorry to tell you this, but there is no dipstick. Honda says this in its maintenance materials:
Check automatic transmission fluid level only if leakage is suspected.
Automatic transmission has no dipstick, so fluid level can only be
measured by checking fluid temperature with a PGM Tester and removing
the overfill screw. Refer to the Service Manual for details.

1998 honda passport auto transmission slips


CHECK THE TRANSMISSION FLUID TO SEE IF IT IS LOW. THERE SHOULD BE A COLD LEVEL AND A HOT LEVEL. WITH THE TRANS IN PARK AND HOT, ENGINE RUNNING PULL THE DIPSTICK TO SEE IF THE TRANS NEEDS FLUID. WHEN ADDING, MAKE SURE THE PROPER FLUID IS USED. IF THE TRANS FLUID LEVEL IS OK BUT THE TRANS FLUID SMELLS BURNED OR IS VERY DARK THEN HAVE THE TRANSMISSION SERVICED WITH FLUID AND FILTER. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR ANY COMMENTS. BEST OF LUCK

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

I need a diagram of how to put transmission in 98 honda passport


If you have an automatic transmission, you should take it to a mechanic or at least purchase the special fluid temperature gauge needed to do it right. You add fluid through the overfill screw opening found on the transmission fluid pan (there is no dipstick or underhood component on the 96' and later models). It should be located in one corner of the pan; there's also a drain plug is more toward the middle. Never open the overfill screw with the engine stopped - it should always be running and warm.

For a manual transmission, the fill plug is also on the pan, but it is located on the side.

How do you put in transmission fluid?


Unfortunately, you have a closed system transmission, there is no dipstick or filler tube. I have a 96 passport and to have fluid replaced in the transmission you need to take it to a garage that is equipped to fill closed transmissions. This generally runs about $100.00 at the dealership. I was on my way to get my transmission serviced when the trans broke. Don't wait long if you're having issues.
