How to Check Your Honda’s Transmission Fluid in Roswell, GA


Keeping your transmission fluid in great shape is key to your vehicle functioning in peak condition. Knowing how to check your Honda’s transmission fluid is vital to this.

  1. Park your Honda vehicle on a level surface, engage your parking brake, and start the engine. Leave the car in neutral or park. Let your engine warm up and continue to run throughout the operation unless your owner’s manual says otherwise. Be aware that some automatic transmission fluid levels are check with the engine off.

  2. Locate the automatic transmission fluid dipstick , typically near where the transmission or transaxle meets, rear of the engine. It looks like the oil dipstick.

  3. Remove the automatic transmission fluid dipstick. Wipe the dipstick clean, reinsert fully and remove again. Caution: Fluid may be hot.

  4. Observe the markings at the end of the dipstick. Your dipstick might have two markings for “full” - one warm and one cold. If the automatic transmission fluid level does not come up to the “warm” line, you’ll need to add automatic transmission fluid.

  5. Insert a long funnel into the automatic transmission fluid dipstick hole. Carefully add automatic transmission fluid in small increments and recheck the level each time until the fluid level reaches “warm” line. Caution: Do not overfill or spill automatic transmission fluid on hot engine parts.

  6. Reinsert the automatic transmission fluid dipstick fully and you’re done!
