DIY: Manual Transmission Fluid Change (91-05)

3 May 2020
Learn how to change the MTF (Manual Transmission Fluid) on your First Generation Honda/Acura NSX. Please note: this was done on a 1991 NSX, and should be the same for all 1991-96 5 Spd NSX. The 97-05 6 Spd NSX should be very similar.

If you have a keen eye, you'll notice I installed a magnetic drain bolt (which was a mistake and a story for another day). I promptly removed it and used the OEM drain bolt....I do NOT recommend a magnetic drain bolt in the NSX due to the tight clearance between the bolt and the ring gear. Just use OEM.
