Right checking the MTF level today and the Haynes manual is telling me to put the car on axle stands to do it, I was under the impression that when checking any fluid levels the car should be on level ground? When the front is jacked the fluid flows out the level hole, but it is at the back of the tranny (D14a2) so its not that suprising. Am I going mad or is this usual Haynes randomness; how do they know how high my axle stands are?

Any help appreciated as I want to change the fluid soon- no idea what grade it is or how long its been in there.

Yeah that sounds more likely. The handbook says 1.9l total and 1.8l for the change so I will go with that and check with Honda when I pick up the fluid I think.

Had this suspicion after it told me to remove all the glove box etc when changing the cabin filter, only to find that it just slides in from underneath >:-( .

*quietly slides manual under wonky table leg until BBQ lighter needed.*
