ok, to check any honda/acura auto tranny, you have to check it when the car is off. you stick the dip stick inside check the level. you want the color to be like a bright pink fuild, if not you might want to take it somewhere to get a flush or maybe do a pan drop and replace the filter

yea but you have to check it within a minute of turning it off. if its grey thats usually friction material and is not usually good.

What's you're milage, and when's the last time you had it changed? You will know when it is going bad because your tranny will start to shift funny-especially when the fluid gets hot. It's best to have it done every 60k miles. While you're getting it flushed, it would be a good idea to add a tranny cooler. They are around $30 and work wonders-plus they are easy to hook up.

^x2 i agree, my brother put one on his prelude when he blew his first tranny, it lasted a lil while then he blew his second trany, and finally decied to go 5 speed no problems so far. by the way you can do it yrsled it takes no more than 30 mins even for noob
