Default Is it true that Honda doesn't recommend transmission flush?

I have an 08 Honda civic. Also how many quarts of trans fluid do I need for drain and refill. Can't seem to find it in Manuel.

Yes transmission flush is not really recommend for any vehicle as the chemicals used if it is not completely flushed out it can damage the transmission.

Take it to Honda! They will only change and refill. Use their fluid only too!

Agree with Jimmy NO car manufacturer recommends tranny flush. Best bet is to just change the tranny fluid, or you can change it then drive it like 2000 miles and change it again along with the filter. That is about as close to a flush you ever want to go. Tranny flushes use pressure to force out the fluids and can dislodge the circutry of an automatic trans. Most trans flushes that are performed lead to total transmission failure. If you doubt that ask a professional tranny mechanic not one at like AMCO or that kind a shop. A professional
