The Honda Odysseys transmission filter they don't tell you about
In this post I will show you where the filter is for your 99-04 Honda odysseys automatic transmission and how to change it. Honda says this is a lifetime filter that does not need to be changed. I decided to change mine because I have heard of this particular filter being plugged up and I wanted to make sure mine wasn't. Transmissions are expensive! These transmissions are the weak link in this particular van anyways so I decided not to take a chance. I was going to do a drain and fill on the trans fluid also so I decided to do both. First thing to do is drain the trans fluid after you have properly warmed it up. It's a 3/8 square drive so just use your 3/8 extension and pull the plug out.
