If you want to do it yourself, go to this site. It has step by step information on how to change your transmission fluid if you have an automatic transmission without a dipstick.

If you are not comfortable with changing your fluid yourself, go to a dealership

You should use only Honda genuine transmission fluid. You can get a gallon of it at your local Honda dealer and change it yourself.

It is a special tool that only the dealer has. You can not check the fluid yourself.

I don't think you can change it. I have a 1999 catera and my transmission fluid has to be changed at the dealer.

In fact I would advise against it on a high mileage transmission.

Right side of the engine, next to the battery department. It has a little cap, can't change it yourself have to take it to the dealer to have it changed...

It should be under the dash between the radio and accelerator. You can change it yourself, but it will have to be programmed by a dealer or mechanic.

The transmission fluid is called synchromesh its a special fluid was only available at a dealer now penzoil makes their own. The gm part number is #12345876 I believe.

Yes...I checked with the dealer parts depatment and it come up as the same part number. But you should compare the old with the new to see for yourself that they match. Good luck with your repair.

At the dealer: $500 to $700. If you do it yourself: $100 to $200, (plus oxygen sensor if needed) assuming that you take it to a transmission shop for the transmission service.

Take it to the dealer. It's a hard one to do yourself.

I carried my 2004 CTS back to dealer, they said they had to reset the computer. It made mine change right.

Most Honda's have an internal, non-serviceable filter that is only changed when the transmission is rebuilt. Call a Honda dealer to be sure.

That would depend on what is wrong with the transmission. Repairing an A/T or a Manual transmission is a repair that requires skill, knowledge, and training, in other words a professional. Take it to a trusted independent or Saturn dealer. Avoid chain transmissions shops. As you don't state the problem, about all you can do yourself is change the fluid and filter if you have the skill to accomplish this. If you are experiencing rough shifting or hesitation, change the fluid and filter or have it done.

If you do not know how to change it yourself than go to a dealer or autoshop and have them do it and ask them to teach you how to do it your self
