How do you change a transmission filter on a Honda Accord LX?

Accord LX dose not have a transmission filter. The only way to keep the transmission clean is to change the fuid more often. Correction: ALL transmissions have filters, Period. Honda doesn't recommend changing it. There's a difference! Do you shower, and put dirty clothes back on?? I don't! I changed mine, on my '99 Honda Accord, dealer said there wasn't one! It's just a round element, under a small cover, on the driver's side, of the tranny.

How do you adjust idle on 1997 Honda Accord EX?

I hav had a 1996 LX Honda Accord and a 1997 EX Honda Accord. On both, I had the same problem with with a "rough idle". A friend who works for Honda here in South Florida, tells me that what it needs is an adjustment on the throttle and it has to be someone very familiar with the car,otherwise, it may create additional problems. Furthermore, I find this to be a question that needs to be answer by a Honda especialist. many of us are having problems with the "idle" but every mechanic I have talked to, refuses to give me a straight answer. They want to "clean" this, touch that and after several hundred dollars, you still have the same problem. I have been trying to get the email for Honda executives, to see if they give us a solution to this growing problem.
