My transmission finally went out. So, I'm getting a new one. Is there any tips/advice I should know?

Also, is there any maintenance advice or driving advice to help care for this new transmission?

Should I get a transmission cooler and a filter?

Any tips/advice is welcome. :waytogo:

My car: Honda Accord 2001 EX V6

I would have just 5spd swapped if I was you

Can you elaborate some more? (how much more work will it be, will there be modifications to the engine bay)

5spd swap to the tl automatic?

idk if I want to spend more buying the ecu and stuff.

You had more problems after doing what? There are many different suggestions in that thread, other than the first post.

Doing the whole turning on and turning off the car procedure.

tranny cooler...and drive easy.

Anybody else for a cooler? Getting the transmission in a couple of days. So, I'm trying to make sure I get everything. Also should i change my transmission mounts? My car is at 230000 miles. Won't really know the condition of the mounts until it is out.
