Default How do you change the transmission fluid?

Does anyone know how to change the transmission fluid on a 01 Honda Accord EXF23A4? Its automatic if you guys are wondering. Also how much milage would you wait for to change the transmission fluid? 12,000?

I know theres something where theres like 2 bolts on the transmission
ones like the fluid filler plug and the others a drain plug. Does anyone have pics of how to do it? Any pics of just pointing out what to do and where would be great.

I know this doesn't really answer your question, but I'll assume since you are asking this you plan on doign the maintenance on the car yourself...so you may want to go to an Autozone or Advance and get yourself a repair manual liek from Haynes.

its on the passger side of the car, all you need a oil bucket and you have to usea rachet. There no bolt its the actaully rachet that you use to lossen the bolt. Just drain and refill. Also only use honda ATF fluid.

Drain plug on the automatic is farther forward. Rather than being under the axle, it's about a foot forward, but still facing towards the right side of the car.

The drain plug has a magnet, so if you suck the fluid out, you can't wipe off that magnet & look at what's stuck to it.

The torque converter doesn't drain, so you only get about 1/3 of the fluid. Since it was dirty, you might want to drain/fill it again a couple more times. Drive around in-between & keep doing it until it's clean.
