If the factory is recommending a 100K mile service schedule, they may be putting in synthetic ATF. If you replace synthetic with conventional your mileage may go down.

Id be careful what you put in honda transmissions.The factory reccomends honda genuine transmission fluid. The 6th gen accords were known for their tranny problems (98-02) so im tryin to stick with that.

please do not flush via vacuum(like shops try to sell)...http://www.buzzle.com/articles/trans...-problems.html

apparently particles can make their way to the valve body and cause issues.

That's what I've heard of too from a couple older mechanics, that no longer do work for hire.

Is there a way to change all of your ATF, getting it out of the torque converter, without doing an actual flush?

I've heard about dropping the cooling line and having another tube re-route fluid as you pour more in. Doing this, though, after you've done the standard "fluid/filter" change. After that, then pour in new ATF while having the car in "D"(@ operating temp?), but park break applied and wheels blocked. Once the routing line shows the clean fluid stop pouring, attach line, then re-check levels since the tranny will be hot and hopefully you're on a level surface.

Is there a better way than that?

That is still considered a flush, and it is the recommended style of flush. You don't pour in the ATF, you dip the other end of the line in it and let it get sucked in. The transmission's oil pump does all the work of completely replacing all of the ATF.

The only way I can think of to replace all the fluid without a flush is to take the transmission off the car and drain each piece by hand.

Oh, I see what you're saying. I may try that. Hopefully I don't have to go through a ton of quarts before I can just top it off again.
