Experiencing problems with the transmission in your Pilot, such as clunky shifting or hesitation? Check the fluid level first – it is amazing how many drivers pay thousands of dollars for transmission work when a half quart of transmission fluid would have fixed the problem.

Your Honda Pilot’s automatic transmission fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles. The transmission fluid keeps the internal gears and seals inside of the transmission lubricated and cool.

The transmission fluid is pumped out of the transmission pan and circulates throughout the transmission. After about 30,000 miles, the automatic transmission fluid begins to break down and should be replaced.

Have a dealer check the fluid level and replace if necessary. Do not attempt to check or change the automatic transmission fluid yourself.

Do not mix Honda ATF DW-1 (automatic transmission fluid) with other transmission fluids. Using a transmission fluid other than Honda ATF DW-1 (automatic transmission fluid) may adversely affect the operation and durability of your vehicle’s transmission, and damage the transmission.

Any damage caused by using a transmission fluid that is not equivalent to Honda ATF DW-1 (automatic transmission fluid) is not covered by Honda’s new vehicle limited warranty.
