    I read that it is advised to replace 5, 4 and #3 O-rings. This filter fits my 2013 Accord as well.
    Question: My mechanic while checking CVT transmission oil level after replacing, had an engine on and check bolt removed instead of engine off. Does that make difference?

    I ended up getting my cvt fluid done at the dealership today. Paid 132 for a drain and fill. The maintenance minder did not trigger but the car has slightly over 46,000 miles so I decided to get it done.

    I noticed a big difference after. The transmission was always jerky and shudder at lower speeds and now is 90% better with less jerking

    Definitely. Huge difference, and anyone who has a jerky transmission I'd suggest it. I can't believe how much of a difference it has made. Now that I have been driving it for a few days it runs pretty smooth now. The maintenance minder didnt trigger, but I did it anyways, and will probably do it every 30k miles irrespective of the maintenance minder.

    What exactly do you mean by a "jerky" transmission?

    When I am driving, let say I get to around 20mph or so.....typically when braking from a higher mph, the car has a jerking or "skipping" feeling. It feels as almost the car's transmission is unable to transition from a higher mph to a lower.

    I usually notice this when I am going at a higher speed, like 65mph, then begin to slow down like driving into the neighborhood and slowly braking to 15-20mph, then lightly tap the accelerator to keep going that's when it "jerks". That's the best way that I can describe it, although I have read other have the same issue.

    It largely has went away after the fluid change and it was the first time unless something was not done correctly from the factory.

    Would definitely recommond everyone to swap the cvt oil every 30k miles this makes the car feel way smoother when driving and swear mpg jumped up. I was skeptical at first but i noticed the big change when i had it done on my 15 cr-v @ 50k miles.

    Just go to https://www.bernardiparts.com/
    Choose a year of your car, then model, then "trim/transmission", then parts, then "transmission automatic" and finally "AT Cvtf warmer"- DONE
