Re: 2000 honda civic manual transmission
I would have to see the car if you would need all of these, most likely you could do the flushes yourself if they are needed. Take the car to another shop and see what they recommend changing and at what price. Everything depends on actually seeing the car and whether the above have been done before. The prices aren't out of question.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Best way is look in your Srevice Manual that came with your car, it list all fluid types for you auto. .Walk right into the local Auto perts shop and say" Ineed to purchase some trans fluid for my 2000 Honda Civic what kind should I get and he can look it up for you. Call the local Honda dealers parts department. They will know for sure!
lots of luck. If you find this helpful please leave a good rating Thanks, Jack
Check the transmission fluid level and condition of the fluid. Add Automatic Transmission Fluid as needed and do not over fill. Have the transmission line pressure tested and service the transmission. "replace the transmission oil and filter" Star with that and hope the transmission is not gone to far that you may need any other transmission. Keep me posted and shop around to find a good transmission shop.
Your Civic auto transmission requires 6.2 US quarts TOTAL.
I know the Manual says to flush three times, but I believe the reference is to the situation IF you have temporarily used a Dexron II fluid. If you are already using Honda ATF-Z1, I wouldn't worry about flushing three times. I would simply look at the plug gasket to determine whether or not you need a new one. The old one will probably do fine, but gaskets certainly don't cost much so you might as well get one while you're getting the fluid (if somebody has one in stock).
Hope this helps.
