Re: Maintenance Info

AFAIK, there is only one Honda brake fluid.

It appears the shipping is free at Curry. Did not put the order through 100%, but I think that's it.
If it is, the difference in total price between Bernardi and Curry could be almost 2X!!

Re: Maintenance Info

My local dealer price matches, so I normally give them the business since shipping is generally > sales tax.

That would be my next alternative. To avoid any taxes or shipping, (although Curry charges neither it would appear, depending on your state) I would shop it at your dealer. Mine only gives me 10% off, which for some stuff is ok.
But it's still hard to beat Curry on fluids with free shipping. Have not checked them that closely for other parts.

Re: Maintenance Info

I updated the original post. again please feel free to add or correct this info. if anyone can post a link to good write ups I will add them.

I did some fluid changes today (50mi past due)

the transfer case was due last time but I put it off til now. it was fairly easy with a bottle of gear oil with the pointed spout you can just stick in the fill hole. really gotta squeeze the **** out of it to get enough out. i think a large syringe would make this job alot easier.

I did one D&F on the transmission today. I did 3 last time when it was due and ended up being slightly over filled with 3.75 quarts. Today I drained it and filled with 3.25 (every drop I had) and it is slightly under filled. so I guess 3.5 is on the money? what's your experience?

Re: Maintenance Info

Yes, 3.5 qts (+/-) seems pretty close for me on my two Hondas. That formed the basis of the spreadsheet calcs I did a while back.

Start with 2 full bottles. Squeeze from one until it takes some effort, then do that same with the other full one. Then just mix these half empty bottles into one. Next time, buy another bottle and repeat.

Re: Maintenance Info

Not sure what you mean Hamhocs. Oh wait, you mean use the 2nd bottle on the next service of the TA. Then combine the bottles. Yep, that's what I do too.

One full bottle is 1 qt. The transfer assembly takes about 1 pint (half qt) of fluid.

I actually bought a qt bottle hand pump, but haven't put it into service yet.
