Honda question

I'm sorry to ask a Honda question on this site but I'm sure someone on here can help me out. My wife drives a CRV and I just changed the tranny fluid. The manual says it holds 2.5 quarts so I bought 3 quarts and figured I would be fine. I put all 3 quarts in and it's still not up to the low mark when the fluid is hot. Should I keep adding fluid? Is their spec really 1 quart off? Any help would be apreciated.

Don't you check it while it running? Would that make a difference?

Correct. They should have 2 marks on the dip stick. One side is when running, one is when off. Check the manual.

Here is what the manual says

ATF Level Check
NOTE: Keep all foreign particles out of the transmission.
1. Park the vehicle on the level ground.
2. Warm up the engine to normal operating temperature (the radiator fan comes on), and turn the engine off. Do not allow the engine to warm up longer than the time it takes for the radiator fan to come on twice.
NOTE: Check the fluid level within
60-90 seconds after turning the engine off. Higher fluid level may be indicated if the radiator fan comes on twice or more.
3. Remove the dipstick (yellow loop) (A) from the dipstick guide tube, and wipe it with a clean cloth.
4. Insert the dipstick into the guide tube aligning the notch (8) with the guide tab (C).
5. Remove the dipstick and check the fluid level. It should be between the upper mark (A) and lower mark (8).
c
6. If the level is below the lower mark, check for fluid leaks at the transmission, and hose and line joints. If a problem is found, fix it before filling the transmission.
NOTE: If the vehicle is driven when the ATF level is below the lower mark:
  • Transmission damage will result.
  • Vehicle does not move in any gear.
  • Vehicle accelerates poorly, and flares when starting off in the D and R positions.
  • The engine vibrates at idle.
  • l'
7. If the level is above the upper mark, drain the ATF to proper level (see step 3 on page 14-239).
NOTE: If the vehicle is driven when the ATF level is
above the upper mark, the vehicle may creep
forward while in the N position, or have a shifting
problem.
  1. If necessary, fill the transmission with ATF through the dipstick guide tube opening (A) to bring the fluid level midway between the upper mark and lower mark ofthe dipstick. Do not fill past the upper mark. Always use Honda ATF-Z1 Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). Using a non-Honda ATF can affect shift quality.
  2. Insert the dipstick into the guide tube aligning the notch with the guide tab.

The only engines that I know of that had a counter clockwise rotation, were old Volvo's......fwiw.

maybe I was wrong about the K series..............But in order to have a drag car a few yrs ago, honda had to get a race trans manufacturer to flip flop the gears in a typical race trans since the motor ran counter clockwise
the motor should be off when checking the fluid,so if the motor is off how is direction rotation going to affect the fluid level?

did you do just a drain and fill or a flush? I just did my wife's 06 civic. If it was just a drain and fill, then the 2.5 or so "should" be correct. A drain and fill on the civic took in 3 qts.

If you drained out all of it (flush), it should be way more than 3 qts..

It's a 2008 4wd. It calls for 2.6 quarts when doing a drain and fill which is what I did. I drained the fluid right after a 20 minute on a 90 degree say so it was HOT...would that let more fluid come out?

it should have taken 3 quarts on a drain and fill,but it must have been a little low.make sure you don't have any leaks.then add fluid till its up to the upper mark,when the engine is hot,and not running.
