Thanks. Yes, I just looked at the dipstick and the engine is cold (has not been run for 16 hours) and on the cold side of the stick the fluid level is almost an inch higher than the upper hole.Have you looked at the dipstick if it has one?
I don't follow Honda engineers recommendations religiously, but since they are professional engineers and know the product better than any one on this august forum...30k is the most I'd use Honda ATF for. IMO the MM is not that great. I pretty much only use it for oil changes, none of the other stuff. You will find some "Maintenance Minder nazis" on this forum that insist on following the MM religiously, but I'm not one of them.
Okay, I just siphoned off almost 8 ounces and oddly enough the dipstick shows the same level. Oh well, I have some extra brand new fluid if I ever need to add any.
Yeah and my Nissan Frontier also says to do that. I just checked the Accord’s fluid after running it about 20 miles and the level looks fine in the “hot” range of the dipstick. ThanksThx.
I do know back in the day that we'd check Ford's and GM tran level with the engine running.
