if your referring to a rebuilt tranny with 6700 miles on it. it should be fine for atleast a lil while, but as alwasy. there is alwasy more you can do. id suggest changing the transmission fluid to Amsoil. its a lil exspensive, and can be hard to find at times, but its alot better then most other tranny fluids. also when you change the fluid, id suggest swapping the drainplug out for a magnetic transmission drain plug. exspecially since youd be changing the fluid anyways. the magnetic drain plug, for as cheap and simple as it is, it can do world of help by pulling out all the metal shavings that get caught up in it. other then that, dont beat on it

(if its auto dnt race from the 1-2 gears as thats extemely hard on the tranny) and if its a manual, well make sure you get smooth shifts going, rev match, you know, all the stuff your supposed to do when driving a stick shift. anyways, just change fluid, drain plug, and baby it dude. aside from that, not to much you can do.

I recommend changing the fluid every 30,000 miles and use genuine Honda transmission fluid. Any other fluid may give you hard shifts.

If you mean 67.000 miles You could get trans fluid and filter changed . I wouldn't pay more for any special type fluid .with that many miles on it I would just go with what manufacture requires.The price of the regular trans fluid is high enough in price, the fancy stuff can be almost twice as much.I was told by a GM auto trans Tech once that if you didn't do fluid changes at the recommenced intervals that if you had put like 70 or 80.000 miles on the trans that it would be best if you left it alone because changing fluid at that time would remove the varnish and small parts of crud that were keeping tolerances close. that could cause trans to fail sooner than it would have if left alone

If you mean 6700 miles do nothing.

The manufacturer suggest changing the fluid every 30,000 miles, at least follow those guide lines. I would change it at 15-20,000 miles because by the time a car hits 30,000 miles, the fluid is pretty much toast. Also, in response to the 30 year mechanic above, Hondas don't have replaceable filters. An automatic tranny service is the same as a manual tranny service......Drain and fill.
