Default How often should I change a 2007 Honda Civic's transmission fluid?

I couldn't find the mileage figure in the owner's manual and Honda's site is WORTHLESS for anything besides buying a new car...big surprise

if you have an internal filter, like many other hondas/ acuras, it's best to do it at least annually, or every 2 years/ 30,000 if you want to keep your transmission healthy...































I went to other honda and acura sites & it's not that hard to drain the old fluid, and refill with HONDA ATF fluid through the dipstick hole...































i practiced this on a 1995 honda accord and will do the same on a 2005 acura mdx;both have internal filters/screens only

every 30,000 miles if its an automatic and if its shifting hard change it now. Honda's have internal















filters which cannot be changed and there are no belt adjustments. regular changes will ensure the filter doesn't get clogged up. Only use Honda fluid

Automatics I recommend every year.















Manuals I recommend at least once a year but an extra year won't hurt.































Honda's automatic transmissions are very sensitive so extra care is needed for them, especially if you want it to last the lifetime of the car.

Automatic-every 30k like they said. Hondas manual says every 110,000 or soemthing but that is silly. Generally you need to drain n refill. Remember youre only getting like 50% of the fluid so that is why you need to do it so often. MANUAL-every year or so Id say. I prefer amsoil. With the automatic you MUST use honda atf-z1 only or now they have a synthetic.
