Try disconnecting the battery for a few hours.I have been very careful with the van since the beginning (Muzzled, ATF change every oil change). Everything works great so far. Today I changed ATF and the van immediately started slipping after that. As I speed up, I can see the RPM moves up and down as if it is gear hunting but I think it's just compensating for the slippage. Sometimes, letting go of the brake will not move the van and I have to give it gas >1-1.5K RPM to actually move it.
The van is 2017, 67K km.
I used to do all my ATF change, this is the only time I did it at the garage. I guess that was the mistake??? I'm thinking of just order some ATF and do a 3 drain-fill cycles to see if it helps. Is this a good idea. It has been running perfectly before the ATF change so I don't think there is damage to it.
Thanks for your inputs.
Instead of waiting a few hours, just touch the cables together for a second or two AFTER you disconnect the Neg from the battery, of course, Otherwise, a possible explosion and/or bad acid burn.Try disconnecting the battery for a few hours.
Try driving again.
On our 15 odyssey the cables were not long enough to touch, so I just left em for a few hours.Instead of waiting a few hours, just touch the cables together for a second or two AFTER you disconnect the Neg from the battery, of course, Otherwise, a possible explosion and/or bad acid burn.
This will drain the capacitors and that is the same thing that is what is done by leaving it disconnected for a long time.
Leaving it disconnected is somewhat safer as long as you disconnect the Neg.
Yes ----do 3 drain and fills, go for a 5 min drive between each drain and fill.0dyfamily. So I bought a 2015 minivan with maybe one ATF change at around 80k miles. Now the van has 197k miles. The transmission is fine, maybe a little shaky around 30mph but nothing major. Do you recommend a change the ATF even if the color is brown?!?!!?
Update. I went to see the mechanic today and he showed me the oil drum he used for the ATF. It clearly says on the label that it is compatible with DW-1 ATF.
I tried to take a picture but my kid played with the phone and changed it to 5sec timer.... let's just say that the resulting picture is rather uninteresting. I'll do it again next time.
He now stocks Honda DW-1, to be used at least for the Ody.
