Question about Honda Civic

2 Answers

Hello, I have a question concerning my recently purchase 2001 Honda Civic CVT. When purchased we added 1 liter transmission oil, not knowing it needed special transmission oil for CVT's. Other people here in Mongolia did the same thing and one had to change his transmission. What must I do? Purge all the transmission oil, wash transmission and then add the special CVT oil? We discussed this with local Mongolian mechanics and they will not guaranty their work. What do you suggest?

Just drain the oil. DO NOT FLUSH TRANSMISSIONS especially continuous varible transmissions. thats why they won't garantee there work. replace with specified MUGEN oil. its the only oil designed specificaly for HONDA's, pluse mugen is honda's performance company.

I have civic with 1.3 16v engine.what is the best gear box oil,and how much liters do i need


There is no best gear box oil, only the correct gear oil.
Buy it from Honda and the parts guy will tell how much
you will need. I assume you have a manual transmission
so fill it till it's level with the fill hole. This is just a guess,
about 2 liters.

please specify what your problem is.

your vehicle is not equipped with a cvt transmission, so does not require cvt fluid. adding cvt fluid would cause a catastrophic failure. please reply and explain what problem you are actually experiencing.

I have a 1998 Civic HX 2DR as well and mine also takes a moment to engage when you press the gas. I don't know if this is normal or not? I just bought the car and I need to replace the trans fluid only because I don’t know if there is Honda oil or another brand in it. The CVT transmissions only can use Honda's CVT oil. There is a recommend alternative oil but based on the manual it’s only for temporary use until you can replace it with the Honda oil otherwise it will cause damage to the transmission over time.
