Pyrorocketeer Posted January 18, 2008 Share Posted January 18, 2008 (edited) We all know how much bullsh!t, misinformation and bias info is floating around on the internet ::cough:: "fram" ::cough:: , and I was wondering about the honda tranny fluid.... is it really that different or is EVERYONE that misinformed and believe it is some magic snake oil?? Here is the situation. I checked the dipstick from my accord (auto tranny) to see how the fluid was looking, and to see if it was ok. Well it was a little brown, so I thought I should flush the stuff. Butt..... after some research, I found that the crap averaged $6.00 plus per quart. We all know how much dealerships markup prices, because it has the "HONDA" name on it.... (hence why I don't buy from dealerships) ....and when you need to use ~12 quarts for a flush, that sh!t just wasn't going to fly. So I called up the nearest FLAPS, and asked what the book says to use. They said their computer was saying dextron 2. (might have been since they can't sell the honda stuff, but who knows). Today my father (diesel mechanic for 40ish yrs) is calling up the place that he buys all of his oils, and where he sends all of his oil to for analysis to pull up the data on dextron 3, and honda atf, and see what they say on it. anyways, what do you guys all run in your autos? EDIT: Who builds a tranny without an external filter too? Edited January 18, 2008 by Pyrorocketeer Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
