I have an '01 CRV as well. If yours is an automatic there is no place to add Transmission Fluid. There is only a dipstick and I do not recommend adding it thru there. I took mine to a shop and had the transmission flushed and refilled at around 80,000 miles, even though Honda says you can wait until around 100,000 miles. I would have attempted to do the flush and fill myself, but there is no drain plug either. The shop has a vaccum type of an instrument that sucks out the fluid and any deposits. There is no filter for the trans either. It should only run about $70-80 to have done.

THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION ON A 97-01 HONDA CR-V CAN BE DRAINED VERY EASILY BY GOING BEHIND THE RIGHT FRONT WHEEL AND REMOVING THE PLASTIC SHIELD AND YOU WILL SEE A PLUG THE CAN BE REMOVED BY USING A STANDARD 3/8 DRIVE RACHET. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A LARGE ENOUGH DRAIN PAN YOU WILL BE DRAINING OUT APPROX. 3 QUARTS OF FLUID. AFTER IT HAS BEEN DRAINED TAKE THE DRAIN PLUG AND MAKE SURE TO CLEAN THE END OF THE PLUG THERE WILL BE SLUDGE ON THE END OF THE PLUG THIS MUST BE CLEANED OFF. THEN INSTALL THE PLUG THE SAME WAY YOU REMOVED IT ( DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE PLUG ) WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED GO UNDER THE HOOD AND YOU WILL NEED A 10 MM SOCKET TO REMOVE THE 2 BOLT THAT SECURE THE BACK OF THE AIR BOX AND PULL OFF THE AIR INTAKE HOSE THESE TO THING ARE VERY SIMPLE TO DO. AFTER THE BOLTS ARE REMOVED AND THE AIR HOSE IS PULLED OFF GRAB THE AIR BOX AND WIGGLE IT WHILE PUSHING TOWARDS THE BATTERY AREA AND THE AIR BOX WILL POP OUT OF THE FRONT MOUNT. NOW REMOVE THE AIR BOX FROM UNDER THE HOOD AND SET IT ASIDE YOU WILL SEE A DIPSTICK WITH A YELLOW COLORED HANDLE ON TOP, THIS IS THE FILL AREA FOR THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID. YOU WILL NEED A FUNNEL WITH A LONG SPOUT. DO NOT PUT ANYTHING OTHER THAN HONDA CVT-F TYPE FLUID IN THIS VEHICLE IT HAS A GRADE LOGIC CONTROLED TRANSMISSION AND THIS IS CONTROLLED BY THE OPERATING TEMP. OF THE FLUID IN THE TRANS SO YOU SHOULD USED THE CORRECT HONDA FLUIDS TO AVOID ANY PROBLEMS WITH HOW THE VEHICLE SHIFTS. YOU WILL NEED 3 QUARTS OF THE HONDA FLUID SIMPLY FILL THE TRANS. PUT THE DIP STICK BACK IN THE HOLE ( MAKE SURE IT IS CLEAN AND PUSHED ALL THE WAY IN ) PUT THE AIR BOX BACK IN AND THE PLASTIC SIDE COVER BEHIND THE WHEEL AND YOU ARE FINISHED. HONDA RECOMMENDS THIS TO BE PERFORMED AT AROUND 90,000 MILES SAME AS THE REAR DUAL PUMP FLUID AND THE TIMING BELT. THE BEST ADVICE I CAN EVER GIVE YOU IS TO NEVER FLUSH YOUR AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. THIS FORCES LOOSE PARTICLES IN THE TRANSMISSION THAT MAY NOT DRAIN COMPLETLY AND CAUSE PROBLEMS IN THE FUTURE JUST CHANGE THE FLUID AND YOU WILL BE FINE. HONDA MECH.

Not much to add, just that the front edge of the air filter box actually needs to be lifted up with some force to get it off the front mount. I do appreciate the detail from HONDA MECH... awesome instructions and helped me tremendously... everything just as he said.

What kind of transmission fluid does a 1991 Honda CR-V take?

== == Honda didn't make a CR-V in 1991, so I'll assume it's a typo and you meant a 1991 CRX. In any case, it also depends on whether it's automatic or manual transmission. Regardless of whether it's a CR-V or CRX, here's the guidelines on fluid recommendations: Manual transmission: Honda Manual Transmission Fluid is preferred. Alternate substitutes are 10W30 or 10W40 motor oil. If you have a CRX, it'll take 1.9 quarts of fluid. If a CRV (1997-2002), you'll need 1.8 quarts. Automatic transmission: Honda ATF-Z1 Automatic Transmission Fluid.. If you have a CRX, it'll take 2.5 quarts. If a CRV (1997-2002), it takes 3.0 quarts.
