Is the VX tranny drain plug the same size as all other drain plugs for 92-95 civics?
when i go to the auto parts store and ask for a magnetic tranny drain plug for a civic vx they might say: civic dx? then i say no, VX. They say oh we dont have that in our computer here.

The VX trans is an S20. The CX has the same trans. Tell them CX and they should be able to find it.

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.

I just rebuilt my tranny and refilled with with Castro 10w30 (or 10w40, i
can't remember) GTX engine oil.

I use the honda mtf always have and always will. I believe I read on the insight forums about testing all different kinds of oils in there tranny and they came back with the honda mtf as being the best for mpg's.....

ye ai just use what my manuals call for. my truck and cars trannies both have 80w90 in them. the truck is a bit slower in the winter but thats why i start the engien and let it idle for at least a minute in neutral so it gets the oil moving a bit. same with the car, even tho its sometimes hard to shift outa 1st on a very cold day.(cant tell if its me being cold or the tranny)
