Automatic transmission questions....


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I'm pretty new here (only a couple posts so far) and I have a couple questions. I am the proud owner of a 1983 Honda Accord (dont laff at the year, it still gets 33MPG+) with an automatic tranny. My questions are:

  • When is it best to check the tranny fluid? (when the cars running, off, cold, warm?)
  • What is a good tranny fluid? ( I currently have Castrol)

Your help would be greatly appreciated :D

most autos you check with the car at operating temp and not running. but thats an oldie man so check a manual or somin. make sure you smell it , if it smells like burnt toast , you either need an MRI , or your fluid changed , lol.
