HI there

You will need to use Honda premium ATF this will have to be purchased at a dealer, Dextron 111 can be used but shifting problems may occur Honda recommends this only as an emergency measure only, Top up at the dip stick, remember to check with the trans running and don't over fill if cold, re check with the trans hot.

The rpm has been jumping past 4 but the speed is only around 40mph. Yesterday check engine light came on and now it wont move when I press gas. Starts and idles fine. So a co-worker told me to check ATF and ITS EMPTY! Anything else I should try?

Hi there, very low trans oil may cause this problem, you should first re fill the trans and check the reason it is low, there will be some leaks for sure, then see how the car preforms, do this first.
