If you have a leak of any kind, it will be on your carport or garage floor. If it is engine rear seal it will be oil, if it is Trans then it will be reddish fluid.
Unfortunately this practice of up selling is getting more common. If you are really concerned take it to another reliable mechanic for second opinion.

SOURCE: Change Automatic Transmission oil

Honda's are drain and refill only.The filter is internal inside the transmission and can only be accessed during an overhaul.On the bottom of the transmission case is a drain plug that is gold in color.It is removed using a 3/8" ratchet,or extension with a ratchet atached.There is also an aluminum washer that must be kept track of and reinstalled with the drain plug or a leak will occur.After draining the trans,and reinstalling the drain plug,Honda genuine automatic transmission fluid,or an equivalent with a highly fricition modified additive must be used,or harsh shifting can occur.I would install about 3 quarts after draining,and start checking the level at this point.The fluid level is checked with the engine OFF,on level ground.

The back brakes on my Honda Accord are disc brakes. After removing the brake cylinder assembly you will see the brake cylinder piston end has a slot in it. The short pin on the back side of the inner brake pad fits into this slot, but also it is used to 'Turn' (clock-wise) the piston back into the cylinder so you fit the assembly back over the new 'thicker' pads. You can not 'press' this piston back into the cylinder.

SOURCE: right oil for my car

pfboyd is right. The old school thinking was that the thicker the oil, the better it is for the bearings. But, the car makers are doing a much better job of building motors to spec, and the oil quality has made considerable strides as well. I would not hesitate to use the recomended oil viscosity from the manufacturer.

SOURCE: If you were to replace a rear main seal on a 1995 Honda Accord

Yes, the seal has a pressed fit and is bolted on te rear of the engine, in fact all japanese cars do that, keeps them from leaking for a long time.

If a seal is bad yes it will leak. You will have to check with a Honda dealership for accurate warranty information.

Change transmission fluid


You didn't say if it is a auto or manual transmission; also what engine you have? On my wifes Honda Accord V6, just drain fluid and re-fill. This will not empty the Torque Converter but what I did was do the drain and re-fill then let her drive until next oil change (3000 miles) and do it again. Hope this helps,

Torque converter


Transmission will be fine. The torque converter is the oil filled automatic clutch that transmits power for engine to gearbox. If it only does it between second and third, then the transmission is faulty, not the torque converter. You want both changing. The money is in the labour, so economically it makes sense to do both. At 91,000 miles, you need a new car.

transmission oil at 60,000 klms approximately but can be done any time depending on the operating conditions , speed and load
the coolant should be changed when it falls below 50% water anti freeze mix--check with a refractometer
engine oil should be replaced at 5,000 miles or 10,000klms sooner in colder conditions as the water carrying agent deals with more in winter from cold engine starts

I have a 2002 honda accord, V6 with 42,000 miles,,,yes,,,42,000 miles The check engine light went on, the dealer checked the code "p0780" Replace transmission. Can this be right?


The code you have P0780 is an internal hydraulic problem in the transmission. I did some research on this trouble code and the repair manual Say's to replace the torque converter clutch solenoid valve/shift solenoid valve A, and the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valves A and B.

In plain English these are the shift solenoids and torque converter solenoids. These solenoids control the fluid flow to the transmission and if they are not working properly then p0780 will set.

The bad news is the repair manual Say's to replace these solenoids and if the problem is still present then replace or overhaul the transmission because the problem is internal.

Most repair shops are not going to take the risk and just replace the solenoids, they will replace or overhaul the transmission.

What is involved with replacing the main seal to the torque converter.leaking seal to the torque converter.


Have to pull the transmission off of the engine and then slide the torque converter off and replace.
Remember, the transmission has 2 cv half shafts going into it, so that the cv halfshafts have to be removed.as well.

Check engine light is on, on my 2002 honda accord ex v6


Could be as simple as a loose gas cap or cap seal or a bad o2 sensor. A falty cat. converter will also cause the check engine light to come on. Either way, you need to go either to a dealer or some auto parts stores will plug in the dioegnostic sensor and can tell what is wrong. your gas milage will suffer until you get this fixed. Your engine computer uses the inputs from your o2 sensers to adjust the fuel air mixture of the engine for optimum engine performance.

I was driving and the rpm's decreased and the speed wouldn't go over 20. later in the day the engine light came on. I took it for an oil change a few days before but doubt that has anything to do w/ it....


most likely torque converter problem if fluid is decreasing, but could be other problems my advice take it to a good transmission shop or the dealer, also you can if you want retrieve the code in the computer by following the instructions in the repair manual ex:haynes or chiltons for retrieving the codes from the ecu or you can buy an OBDI dianostic scanner from local parts store
