Gents, I recently changed the transmission fluid in my Honda Odyssey. For
the purists, I did use genuine Honda ATF-Z1 fluid. I had done this job
before and found both the drain and fill ports easily. This time I found
the drain right where I remembered it but the fill port was gone. I know
you say it must be there but it is now being used by some lines connected to
a banjo fitting. The only thing I can think of is during the transmission
recall they used that port to add some kind of gizmo. Has anyone else
noticed this? I ended up pouring the fluid down the dipstick tube and it
worked but I'm puzzled what happened to the normal fill port? Your thoughts
would be appreciated.
You must have an 02-04 Odyssey.
Look up the details on the recall campaign.
I'm surprised a guy who changes his own trans oil isn't intimately aware
of the details of the recall.
In short: they put an oil line there to cool the gear that's right
According to my local dealer, they take off the plumbing that was placed in
the fill hole by the recall to do it. If you have a funnel/hose of small
enough diameter, the easiest way probably is to use the dipstick tube.
