Did this video help you?

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 http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/recalls/results.cfm?SearchType=QuickSearch&rcl_ID=11V260000&summary=true 

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 fluid

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 natural.

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 mounts

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 different.

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 around

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.
