The trans fluid (according to Honda) should be checked with the engine at normal operating temperature. Put the car in park and shut the car off. Wait 30 seconds and then check the level.So I drained my transmission and filled with the 4 quarts that the dealership/online info told me to use and now my transmission is overfilled. Is there a bunch of junk in my transmission taking up space or something? How can the dealership specs be so far off? Should I drain some out or is his a sign of a more serious problem?
I’ve checked the dipstick a couple times both on flat ground on different locations and it reads the same high while the vehicle is running.

Shut it off, get out of the truck, grab a rag, walk to the front, open the hood, find the dip stick, pull it out, wipe it off, dip it, and read... sounds tough... may need to set special time aside...If you check the fluid level with the engine running, it will indicate higher than actual levels. The Honda automatic is not like conventional automatics that you check with the engine running. ALWAYS check the Honda 5AT and 6AT hot with the engine off and between 60-90 seconds of shutdown.
If that's the case, I would expect to see the correct level on one side and nothing indicated on the other side. Methinks it's not so simple.Nope you don't need it answered but it's simple. The bend where it goes down causes that as it hits the sides going in. Simple see ?
