NOTE: Before installing the wheel, clean the mating surfaces between the brake disc and the inside of the wheel.


5. Driveshaft After Install Check

1.

Turn the wheel by hand, and make sure there is no interference between the driveshaft and surrounding parts.


6. ATF - Replacement

1.

Remove the ATF dipstick (yellow loop) (A), and wipe it with a clean cloth.


2.

Refill the transmission with the recommended fluid into the dipstick hole (A) to bring the fluid level between the upper mark and the lower mark of the dipstick. Always use Honda automatic transmission fluid (ATF) ATF DW-1. Using a non-Honda ATF can affect shift quality.


Automatic Transmission Fluid Capacity:

2.4 L (2.5 US qt) at change

5.75 L (6.08 US qt) at overhaul



3.

Insert the ATF dipstick (A) back into the dipstick hole.


4.

Remove the dipstick.


5.

Make sure the fluid level is between the upper mark (B) and the lower mark (C) on the dipstick.


6.

Insert the dipstick back into the dipstick hole.


7. Warm Up The Engine

Start the engine. Hold the engine speed at 3,000 rpm without load (A/T in P or N, M/T in neutral) until the radiator fan comes on, then let it idle.


8. ATF Level Check


1.

Park the vehicle on the level ground.


2.

Remove the ATF dipstick (yellow loop) (A), and wipe it with a clean cloth.


3.

Insert the dipstick into the dipstick hole.



4.

Remove the dipstick, and check the ATF level. It should be between the upper mark (A) and the lower mark (B).


5.

If the ATF level is below the lower mark, check for fluid leaks at the transmission, the hoses, and the line joints. If a problem is found, fix it before filling the transmission with ATF.


NOTE: If the vehicle is driven when the ATF level is below the lower mark, one or more of these symptoms may occur:

Transmission damage.

Vehicle does not move in any gear.

Vehicle accelerates poorly, and flares when starting off in forward and reverse positions.

Engine vibrates at idle.


6.

If the ATF level is above the upper mark, drain the ATF to proper level.


NOTE: If the vehicle is driven when the ATF level is above the upper mark, the vehicle may creep forward while in N, or have shifting problems.



7.

If necessary, fill the transmission with ATF through the dipstick hole (A) to bring the fluid level between the upper mark and the lower mark of the dipstick. Do not fill the fluid above the upper mark. Always use Honda automatic transmission fluid (ATF) ATF DW-1. Using a non-Honda ATF can affect shift quality.


8.

Insert the dipstick back into the dipstick hole.


9. Pre-Alignment Checks

For proper inspection and adjustment of the wheel alignment, do these checks:


1.

Release the parking brake to avoid an incorrect measurement.


2.

Make sure the suspension is not modified.


3.

Make sure the fuel tank is full, and that the tire repair kit, the spare tire, the jack, and the tools are in place on the vehicle.


4.

Check the tire size and tire pressure according to tire information.


10. Caster - Inspection

Use commercially available computerized four wheel alignment equipment to measure wheel alignment (caster, camber, toe, and turning angle). Follow the equipment manufacturer's instructions.


1.

Check the caster angle.

5 ° 10 ’±30 ’

 

With 18 inch wheel:

5 ° 6 ’±30 ’


If the measurement is within specifications, measure the front camber angle.

If the measurement is not within specifications, check for bent or damaged suspension components.


11. Camber - Inspection

Use commercially available computerized four wheel alignment equipment to measure wheel alignment (caster, camber, toe, and turning angle). Follow the equipment manufacturer's instructions.
