So, I'm at approximately 93k miles. Did a drain in fill of the AT fluid at 60k. I drive the car relatively hard, so going to stick with the aggressive maintenance schedule. Was going to do a flush this time, and was trying to get the opinion of folks on whether to change the filter in the in the AT. First, I am not handy, and will not be doing this myself. I have an awesome mechanic who will.

Should the filter be changed, and if so how much work is it to do it, and also what part should I get if so? I found the ACDELCO Part # TF101M {#89001369} on rockauto.com for $24.79 or $15.74 for the last whole-sale item in stock.

All thoughts/inputs very much appreciated!

The filter that Honda lists is a sort of mesh that is not designed to be replaced during the maintenance schedule, and cannot be replaced unless you open the transmission casing. It's a long process, and I think you are better off simply flushing the fluid out of the transmission.

I think you just have to change the ATF filter once during the lifetime of the car, it's there to gather shavings for when the auto transmission is first breaking in. I read that somewhere, but its not in the manual
