    Default How to change gear oil filter in civic prosmetic

    Salaams. Well i had a small discussion on this topic before and was told civic's oil filter of automatic transmission is fixed somewhere inside it and thus cannot be changed. Well own a civic EXi Pros 2003 and have a feeling that the oil filter is clogged of my auto tranny. Reason, sometimes in winters my CHECK ENGINE LIGHT comes on and the car doesnt shift gear till 3200-3400 RPM but when ever the car is restartd aftr travelling 4-5kms (temperature needle in middle) the light goes off and the auto tranny works like a charm. Got the oil changed 3k kms back i think. Aftr the oil change i didnt face the problem for a few days but after that it started again. Well my question for GURU's is that like LIQUI MOLY offers engine flush to clean the engine do they offer something for auto tranny aswell? or can i use the engine flush in auto tranny and change the oil again? or can i change the oil filter somehow without opening my auto tranny to small pieces and than get it fixed again? Well my car is driven by my dad n he has no issues or wat so ever with it. The car runs max 100kms a month or sometimes even remains parked for weeks. Right now i m in karachi and my car is in islamabad and if anyone has a suggestion which can really help me than plz share i can try it on my car whenever i visit home. Thanx

    Filter cannot be changed. Change of ATF in quick successions might do the job.

    to replace the transmission filter a full teardown is required - infact at this mileage or symptom a full rebuild is done to eliminate any weak parts - its a Honda automatic transmission and they are not built for long life anyway.

    The clutch material wearing off is distributed and trapped in the filter. There are some flush solutions for automatic transmissions but they seldom work as the distributed particulate matter will only get loose and get trapped somewhere else, if that somewhere is the pressure regulator valve body - you will hate your life.

    For easy remedy, take off the shift solenoids from the outer casing and remove their little screens to clean them out. It may buy you some time, dont expect miracles though.

    I recommend to remove and clean the shift solenoids. Then do a full ATF change with Honda DW1 or with a Highly friction modified multivehicle ATF.

    Xulfiqar bhai any trusted workshop u might suggest for the said job? I normally get my work done from sultan ka khoo but thats only for changing brake discs and stuff havent tried anything like this before and if possible any estimation of cost? Gear oil will cost around 2.5k for 3 bottles of 1 litre each.
