I got a test kit from them but haven't sent it in yet. Do they tell you what numbers are bad, average or good?

Blackston? No, actually quite the opposite; much more too it than that. To give you an idea of the harm their comments can do. They told me my filter was plugged on this car. Well, the car doesn't have a transmission filter.

Many V6s have an in-line filter. Yours doesn't have one?

You forget that this is still the 4-speed in the 6th generation Accord. Honda didn't start with the A/T filters until the 7th generation 5-speed in the Accord.
