Hi LINDA101162,

Confirm you have an automatic transmission (sorry to have to ask).

It depends on the type of transmission you have.

AW-4 - Yes
Not AW-4 - No

It's pretty easy to check though. Get a flashlight.

  • Look under the vehicle at the transmission. You're looking for an I.D. tag just above the pan. You only need to find it, not read it. No need to go underneath.
  • Look from both sides.
  • If you find the tag on the right (passenger) side, It's an AW-4 (OK to use)
  • If you find it on the left or don't find one, then it's not an AW-4 (Not OK to use)

What kind of transmission fluid? The auto parts store tells me ATF+4, my Chilton's Manual tells me Dexron II. I don't believe either really knows what they're talking about...

You should know that using ANY Dexron/Mercon fluid is not recomended, and has shown to lead to transmission failure.

MOPAR ATF +3 is the factory fluid. But, MOPAR has made a new fluid called ATF +4. Chrysler has posted a TSB saying that ATF +4 should be used now.

What type of transmission oil for a 1996 honda odyssey.

Honda uses a special ATF, not the usual Dexron/Mercon. You can, of course, buy it at any Honda dealer. I would personally recommend using BG synthetic ATF, which is compatible. It's a little bit cheaper and is an excellent product. Look online for a local BG products dealer.

If you find this solution helpful, then please take a moment to rate this post. - Thanks.

Ford ATF is different from Dexron. Ford fluid contains banana oil, Dexron doesn't. Use only what it calls for. Or, you will always wonder. Good Luck.
