Transmission problem
1996 Honda Passport 6 cyl Automatic 154000 miles

I think my transmission is slipping, when I stop my car idles really fast and when I am on park it also does it. I want to know where I can check my transmission fluid and put it some in?

Fluid Check

Park vehicle on level ground, then apply parking brake.
Place gear selector in Park, then start engine and allow to idle for two minutes.
With the brake pedal depressed, move gear selector through all gear ranges, ending in Park.


Let engine idle for 3 minutes and then open the overfill screw.
Add transmission fluid until it flows out over the overfill screw-opening.
Let the engine idle until a fluid temperature between 32 C (90 F) and 57 C (135 F) is reached, then close the overfill screw and torque to 38 Nm (28 ft.lbs)

Do not check fluid level under the following conditions:

Immediately after driving at sustained highway speeds.
Immediately after driving in heavy traffic during hot weather.
Immediately after driving while towing.
