Default Re: VUE 3.5L Automatic Transmission Fluid Change

Is there a filter or anything to change or clean on the Transmission?

The GM dealer says there is a "cartridge" with an o-ring seal for the transmission filter. Can anyone confirm this? I had him order it just in case he is right. I have it drained and 5 quarts of Z1 ready... :-)

2004 VUE 3.5L
Default Re: VUE 3.5L Automatic Transmission Fluid Change

I have not had a problem with my saturn and i have the tranny fluid changed every 100K. It is never burn or change in color. I do not have a tow either. The first 100K was in california and ariziona. the second has been in michigan.

Had the chevy dealership do both fluid changes.

The owners manual stated repacement every 25K if you have a towing package and if you tow the vehicle with a tow bar not a dolly.

I have looked all over the tranny for a dipstick to find none. All i found was the fill plug on the top and the drain plug below.

This is the most dependable vehicle i have ever owned.

There are 2 Filters inside the Honda 5AT - both require significant tranny disassembly to replace. The only maint you can do is a 'drain and fill' every 25k mi.

The Tranny Dip Stick is down low, next to the Lower Rad Hose . . .

This link . . .
http://www.justanswer.com/saturn/2o6...ion-fluid.html

. . . is for the 2002-03 Aisin and VTi tranny - not the 2004-07 Honda 5AT.

Hi. I have a 2006 Vue 3.5 L with the MJ7 Honda 5AT tranny. I'm going to the Honda Dealer to get some tranny fluid. I'm guessing that they are going to draw a blank when I tell them that I need tranny fluid for an 06 vue. Does anyone have a part # or pic of the Honda brand tranny fluid that I need? Thanks alot.

2004 VUE 3.5L
Default Re: VUE 3.5L Automatic Transmission Fluid Change

I warmed up my 2004 3.5L Vue jacked it up and got 6 quarts out.... and it's still trickling out. Honda does not recommend using a flush machine. They recommend the 3X drain and fill method. And its much easier to fill through the actual "fill plug".But this is just my opinion.

I wouldn't use that Honda transmissions are very sensitive. Just order the real stuff from amazon. PM me if you want the section fromthe service manual.

That is the original ATF specified for the Honda 5AT. However, Honda no longer sells Z-1 which was superseded by Honda DW-1.
