hanky97007: Have you ever had the transmission service before this. That was pretty
dark looking. Its good you plan on changing it out more frequently now.
Honda has a dump and fill theory. If you stick to their recommended
schedule enough of the old fluid come out for them to be happy. Honda
claims not to have a filter but I found what looks like a filter mounted
behind the radiator. You can also flush it by disconnecting the cooler
lines and dump the one into a bucket while refilling fluid through the 17mm
bolt. There a YT video on it check it out. Every time I bought a used car I
change all the fluids. Maintenance goes a long way. I have a 2000 Accord EX
V-6 and it shifts very nice.
hunter tawney: When I hit the gas my Honda accord it pop's in trans then takes off ....It
is also a hard shifter I 'v been the only owner of the car I got in new and
its had this problem from about 35000 miles till now 130,000 HAVE NO IDEA
WHAT IT IS !!! I HATE IT TO I COULD NEVER RACE IT with the pop it trans
Caleb Noonan: Can someone please explain why would I do the drain fill drive x 3 method?
That doesn't make sense, why would you drain and fill it three times? If
you do that, then what, after 100 miles each 3 times, I'm good for next 90k
miles or what? Just purchased an used 2002 accord ex coupe and I don't like
it at all. Needs a lot of work, and I could tell that it's hesitating and
shifting little hard..Maybe it's just me. I'm deaf, I only can tell by the
feelings and the odometer displaying.
Bianchi Sanremo: $25 buys you a pair of 3-ton jackstands at Walmart or Harbor Freight.
Bricks are not safe.
Jeff Kennedy: so just how much quartz of tranny fluid did you refill the honda with?
Franco g: when you said kick as hard as you can, i didn't actually mean you will do
that but then i saw you doing it n i was like ok, well that will break it
up even more then i saw the sledgehammer then m like ok, he mean business.
jose20673: My 2000 accord does the same I went to get new tires at leswab guy told me
that clunk noise mite be your motor and tranny mounts
Yama Bushido: there are so many thing that you should NOT do in this vib
gtilapias: thanks for your video!!!
hunter tawney: recall info
hunter tawney: How does someone report on HONDA if you go down this page you can clearly
see honda has a problem Honda transmission's seem to need to be
recalled!!!!!! RECALLED RECALLED RECALLED I mean hell if someone pays
$28,000 and up you would think they could get a reliable car one that would
last !!! Dont you think so as well??
SonofGodly: try using a breaker bar, you are teaching others to hurt themselves kicking
with your bare foot . you cant change the filter because its in the
trans,bad design.But you can get more inline magnet filters on ebay.Those
trannys are not made to burn rubber ,You will ruin your torqcoverter or
something else in the trans.
thweepz: my trans fluid is dark but not that dark. barely any metal shavings on the
magnet for 150k miles at the time. my fluid is red though and on a paper
towel it is pink. thats healthy right?
Josh williams: Maybe if you had shoes on that would have worked alot easier lol I've done
that before too hurts like a bitch
Komeng Her: Anyone tried a different ATF brand besides the Honda stuff? JW
Lujuzr .: When any car is cold the idle is high which causes a shake when shifting
gears. Is like changing from neutral to drive with your foot on the gas
pedal accelerating a little You'll feel a shake cus you are telling the car
to move even before putting it on gear.
thweepz: you taking the drain plug off had me laughing my ass off. more torque LOL
thweepz: my 99 accord I4 kind of does the reverse clunk. only when the engine is
cold. that can be due to your motor mounts usually. but it was rather
violent. i hope your trans is good!
CharlietoKind: I agree, especially the fact that these V6 Accords and 99-02 and some 03
odysseys didn't have the best tranny. I bought this car at in May of 12 @
122,000 miles. From the color and the smell of the fluid, I agree the
previous owner has never changed it. Currently I have 139,900 miles on it,
and I have done this "flush"/change 5 times. It has not slipped once! We
also own a 2003 honda odyssey that tows at it max 3500 lbs reg. and at
180,000. we have never changed the fluid! (my parents van)
Usermaxism: Try lucas transmission fix, did you change the transmission filter ever?
CharlietoKind: not sure where the transmission is located on the inline 4 accord (ive
heard on the passenger side), but there will be a 3/8 (square) bolt you
take off just like shown in the video. You should buy 3. A tip of advise,
make sure you can get the atf fill bolt off or make a funnel for the
transmission fluid ("the redneck way" ) before you break open the drain
Bryan Ramirez: Its just your tranny going bad, same thing happened to my '00 accord
Addy Adderson: Dude, you may be doing this the redneck way, but you're pretty darn good at
making an instructional video. Good image, good commentary. You may be a
CharlietoKind: Not sure what could be causing poor acceleration, that sounds like an
engine problem. (spark plugs/wires/gas etc.) Do NOT flush honda
Transmissions, you will knock loose several small metal bits that will not
come out and will clog the transmission fluid holes controlling the
pressure. the only method honda recommends is changing the fluid every
90,000 miles (normal schedule/non severe) or drain, fill, and drive and
repeat 3 times. good luck
CharlietoKind: i use 3 new bottles of honda atf every couple hundred miles
Danny Ramey: i have the same car and issue i think it may be our motor mounts or tranny
listens2glenn: "usually too late" is exactly right.
MagnusShortwave: me too lOl!
Carashai Coleman: THANKS FOR THE VIDEO YOU SAVE MY COUSIN LIFE
2SHOTDAVE: lolz 3:54 misses and kicks pan. crap got me dying!!! anyways, thanx for the
great vid my dude! getting a 4 banger Monday, hopefully its not that
krazer41510: lol @ kickin the ratchet... lol.. just use a cheater or breaker bar... but
uhmm... yeah... that tranny fluid was black as freak... usually too late...
Vijay T: same problem, did the same thing and same results!
dojo: Cinder blocks like a red neck, ghetto funnel like a black guy and you're
Asian. Now you just need to invite a Mexican to give you a wash n wax,
haha. Kidding bro, great video I loved the kicking part the most.
ddk80: Great Video! My only recommendation is use a 3/8 flex handle (breaker bar)
to loosen the transmission bolt. It will save your socket wretch from
damage to the ratcheting mechanism from all that torque being applied.
ChillerMethod: Thanks for the tutorial man! My 00 is getting the DIY treatment this time
Gerardo Gaytan: Never Use Bricks to Hold up a car smart one.... they chip and break easily..
John Kenneth Frivaldo: I just replaced the spark plugs and all of them looks bad after replacing
it runs normal now. I will try it tomorrow morning when the engine is cold.
And when I check the transmission fluid using the dip stick it looks good.
Robert Mannifield: On the 2nd and 3rd cycles, do you use new tranny fluid each time or what
you put in the first time around?
Martin acevedo: Did your transmission slip in anygears?
Nana Nhep: Your vid helped a lot no bullcrap just got straight to the point
listens2glenn: usually too late is exactly right.
2SHOTDAVE: thats what she said!!! lolz
mannys9130: :( The dissappointment in your voice when it clunked after the change is
sad. :( I would not be too upset, since seeing the color of the old fluid,
it WILL take those 3 flushes to clean everything out and get back to spec.
This was a great video!
CharlietoKind: i might give that stuff a shot.. i dont really like putting any junk into
my car. The transmission filter has never been changed. On my car.. it is
built into the tranny, so the whole thing has to be dropped and taken apart
just to get to the filter. Maybe after this tranny dies, and i decide to
keep this car, ill install an external filter and cooler.. thanks for the
tip and thanks for watching.
Austin Robertson: Thanks man! Getting ready to do my 02 as we speak
John Kenneth Frivaldo: I got a 1998 Honda Accord A/T and I have 144miles on it right now and I'm
having a problem with acceleration. It runs great but when you shift it to
D4 the acceleration is poor. My mechanic told me to do a transmission flush
for about 5 times to take out the old oil and refill with honda genuine atf
and run it for 2 miles and flush the new oil and refill it again with new
atf and do it all over again. Is that the way that you do? to clean or
flush out old oil inside the transmission? Thanks
CharlietoKind: never has.. just not super smooth shifiting... seems to shift better after
the 3x fluid change/flush after the engine is warm
CharlietoKind: 3 quarts. the car holds a total of 7. the other 4 quarts are left in the
torque converter and transmission. good luck!
Sean Young: The clunk is probably your transmission mounts.
Jeffrey Cobb: Excellent! Thanks man.
