it would be good to go get the A/t filter changed and flush the tranny and put new fluid in it

i'm not sure if it's the same for 01' civics, but i know mine did not have any transmission filter so it was recommended you flush and replace the fluid every 30,000 mi

I'm going to presume you have an auto trans. The 01 is known to have auto trans problems, especially when using long service intervals, there is no filter. If you want to pay for the Honda fluid that is fine, if not Dexron III will work. The basic answer is yes, I would have it flushed, if you are paying a shop ask them to flush it, if you take it Honda they will most likely just do a drain & fill, with that you'll still have approx. 4qts of old fluid in there, the flush will replace all of it.

honda manual trannys just take regular engine oil. if you want to do the flush yourself.

Not too hard to do. all you need is a funnel, oil pan, and a socket wrench (no sockets needed)

i'd get honda MTF or GM syncromesh in that case. for some reason i thought you were talking about an automatic transmission.

um well definately don't flush it with a hose, use the specified tranny flush, you can get it at any autoparts store

EDIT:

Woohoo 1000th post

Use the GM Synchromesh (2 qts.) just use a 3/8 socket for the drain & 17mm box end for the fill, you'll just need a cheap funnel with a flexible hose on it. Just be sure to remove the fill bolt first, it would suck if you drained all the fluid out & couldn't put any back in. I've had the Spoon drain bolts, you can get magnetic drain bolts at Autozone for much, much cheaper. It's just drain and fill.
