After draining the first 3qts, how much should I drive before repeating the process?

Should I just drive a bit and fill on the same day or wait 24 hours?
Some people have suggested spreading it out over a month or weekly?

Probably a good question to ask is how many miles are on your car? If you're at the factory recommended change interval, I wouldn't take too long between each D&F (but I'm new into Honda/Acura ownership).

One of the knowledgeable members of this board recommended changing transmission fluid every 25-30K miles. He also recommended using Honda ATF. These are recommendations I intend to follow with my TSX.

Hi guys,

Just an update:

I ended up doing a 3x3 drain and fill with 1 gas tank between consecutive changes. The shifting is very smooth now. Also replaced the ATF Filter with Honda OEM filter and used Honda DW-1 ATF.
