Default Does the Honda Civic Si Sedan 2007 have transmission fluid?

Does it use the engine oil as transmission fluid? Or does it have its own compartment with a drain bolt and dip stick? So far I am not able to find the dip stick for the transmission fluid for my 07 SI. Any suggestion on factory tran fluid or third party tran fluid recommendation?

there are no dipsticks for manual transmission cars. Go to the dealer and get the fluid there.

Depends if you have a manual transmission or an automatic transmission...manual transmissions have gear oil and need to be checked underneath the car, Automatic transmissions have fluid and should have a dipstick...check your manual or look online

All transmissions on every single make/model car have fluid.

Manual transmissions do not have a dip stick. What they have is a Fill bolt hole and a Drain bolt hole on the transmission. You'll have to jack up the car.

Basically you just break the fill bolt loose first, then break the drain bolt loose. Let all the fluid drain out then put the drain bolt back in. Pour Honda MTF into the transmission until it starts coming back out of the fill bolt hole then close it up and that's it (make sure the car's level though while filling).

***Use Honda MTF/ATF ONLY.

Replace crappy Honda MTF with amsoil or redline to improve your shifting. SOMETIMES you need to use authentic HINDA ATF but with manuals use whats best. There is a drain bolt and fill bolt. Generally accessed by removing right front tire,. You need to replace the crush washers too and torque them properly. My rsx takes about 1.7 qts so I imagine civic is similar..same tranny
