The irony with the faulty trannies is changing the fluid stirrs up the crud that gets created from the excessive heat, and makes it fail sooner.
If you have the jet kit on your TL (the tranny recall service), it makes it more challenging for sure. I did my own on my 3.2 CL-S but paid the dealer to do all the other ones.
BTW - when acura "flushes" the tranny, all they do is fill it with fresh fluid, drive it a bit, drain it, and fill it again. They don't use any of the "flush" machines, according to a TSB I saw.
A job is an involvement, not a commitment. Like a breakfast of ham and eggs: the chicken is involved, the pig is committed.
There are 4 boxes to use in the defense of liberty: soap, ballot, jury, ammo. Use in that order. Starting now.
