Changing tranny fluid 95 civic DX HB

My civic has 126,000 on it and i dont believe the tranny fuild has ever been changed. Can anyone recommend a good one to use. Also any thing super important i need to know about changing the fuild? I have done it in that past with a Nissan pickup.

Thanks, Michael

Just use whatever you're told in the manual. The best way to fill is through the VSS hole,

Derrr. Thanks.

If I were going to change, I think I would go ahead and refill with synthetic. For my Honda I would use Redline MTF. I used MT90 in my 626 and I liked it.

I tried filling through the hole you check level at passenger tire well area once, it was a *****. use VSS like Ben said. I think the manual recommends the ***** way.

So I changed the tranny fluid and all went well. Took about 15 minutes total. I followed this guide http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread/1687986

Look at getting a high quality synthetic like Amsoil. After I replaced the radiator on my 2001 Impala I topped off with 1 quart of Amsoil ATF and the whole car seemed smoother. I can't wait to change all the transmission fluid. I have already changed the engine over to Amsoil and gained an average of 2-MPG while driving the exact speed limit with the cruise on. I expect a similar gain with a full ATF change. You may also want to look at the gear oil in your rear differential. I have a friend in North Dakota who changed the gear oil in a ford truck in the winter after a 7-degree night. When he pulled the cover the gear oil it was like frozen orange juice and took 2 hours to completely thaw and run out while the Amsoil gear oil that had sat in the back of the truck all night sloshed in the bottle like motor oil. In addition Amsoil can go for longer drain intervals, which makes up for the higher cost.
