Did the 2003 Honda crv normally come with external mounted filter? I believe I have one mounted on Trans lines going to radiator.

IIRC they didn't the first couple years of Gen2. Some owners added the one like you saw. That is the same location that the factory installed them.

Honda never recommended a service interval on those filters. :confused2:

I discovered my 2004 had one 4 years ago when I noticed a couple drops of tranny fluid on the driveway. The filter was so rusty that the fluid was seeping out. So I ordered one and got the proper ATF from my local Honda dealer and did a drain and top off along with the new filter. It shifts better then ever now. Honda service said there's is no service interval but will replace when it does rot through or there are shifting issues.
