    So I finally had the time to do the transmission fluid change this morning. Bought my car as a CPO with 40K miles (it now has 60K) on it and would have assumed that the dealer did the CVT fluid change much earlier - but I don't think they ever did.

    When I replaced the fluid this morning, I only got a little over 2 quarts out of the transmission. When I filled it back up, it took about 3.5 (before it started spilling some out of the overflow hole). Pretty sure I don't have a leak (the underside of the pan and engine) was pretty clean - so I have to believe the dealership never checked it.

    It now shifts much more smoothly than it did when I bought it.
    I didnt wait for my MM to get the code, I changed the transmission fluid at around 35,000 miles along with the brake fluid at the Honda dealership. Both transmission and brake fluid change cost me around $180 with tax included. Most of you probably surprise why so cheap? I received emails from my dealership and coupons on a monthly basis for 15% off any service. Also, I was told by the salesman when I bought the car to install the dealership app to check for coupons so I would suggest doing that before paying premium price for getting any service done at the dealership

    Always a good idea to replace the aluminum crush (sealing) washers when changing oil/fluids.
    That said; I have reused both drain plug and fill plug washers, if they are not overly distorted or compressed.

    About 15 years ago I started using a thread sealant on engine and transmission drain/fill plugs; because the manufacturer of the bike recommended using it
    https://www.permatex.com/products/th...hread-sealant/

    Not only does it seal the threads it acts as a mild locking agent, so even if the plugs are not torqued to spec, they will not loosen. This has been my experience anyway; your choice.

    Do you know the part number for the check bolt washer?
