There is a metal fitting bolt close to the bottom of the transmission. You can unscrew that out and if transmission fluid comes out it's good. If this doesn't occur you'll have to get a pump and pump transmission fluid in it. This is the easiest with a lift of course. Don't you hate stupid Japanese ideas. Good luck man

There is not a dipstick for the automatic transmission on the 1999 Honda Passport. There are two plugs on the bottom of the transmission - the lowest one is the drain plug and the one located higher is the overfill plug. You should have a fluid temperature gauge as it is recommended that the temperature be between 90* F and 135* F when checking fluid level. (I believe you can order from dealer - I have also heard that running the engine for 10-15 min will put you near the proper temperature - to be certain, the temperature gauge is the right way to do it.) Run engine for a few minutes to reach optimum temperature. The vehicle must be on level ground and at idle to properly check fluid level. With proper temperature reached - and engine running at idle - set parking brake - remove the fill plug and add fluid with a syringe or small pump until it just starts to run out of the opening. Do not open the overfill screw with the engine stopped. Replace the fill plug and shift through gears - then remove and repeat one time to achieve proper level.

Unfortunately the Honda alternator is regulated by the ECU, which allows the ECU to intelligently reduce alternator engine loading to improve fuel consumption. The intelligent system uses an electrical load detector (ELD) located near the battery to control the alternator output voltage. A two wire alternator has an inbuilt regulator that will always generate the required charging voltage. When a battery is fully charged and the electrical loading is low there is no need for generating the charging voltage, in this situation the honda alternator will reduce the output voltage to reduce engine loading, hence improved fuel economy.
