Standing in front of car on the passenger side under the air box is a
yellow or orange dip stick. It's wedged down there, but pull it out
and use a funnel to direct whatever you had in mind into the hole.

in my experience, i don't add tranny adiditves unless i absolutely
have to.

if you're not sure about what you're adding, what it is supposed to
do, and how it will react with the different metals in your tranny,
don't add it. seek professional advice.

if your car has under 150k miles, i'd just empty, flush, and change
the tranny fluid.

use honda tranny fluid.

-look down and to the left side of the engine at where the tranny is
attached. you may have to look around your air intake tube and your
battery.

-there is a bolt in the top of the tranny housing that allows you to
fill the tranny with fluid. there is no visible resevior.

-take the filler bolt off of the top of the tranny before you empty
the fluid. you need to make sure you can put new fluid in before you
take the old out or you may be stuck without tranny fluid alltogether.

-change the fluid as you would oil (sans the filter).

I recently bought an Acura and I must say the Honda transmission fluid is
unique. Is it synthetic? It has a watery consistency unlike most ATFs
including sythetics. It must be doing what it is designed to do because the
shifting is almost not noticeable. Do NOT add any extra fluid crap to it. It
will do more harm than good. Also do NOT use Dexron III, it will work but
shifting might be more unpredictable and harsh.
