Default I can't find tranny plug on 89 civic.

89 authomatic civic LX.
I was trying to change tranny fluid today I could not do it. I can't
find the right bolt. I unscrewed 2 hex bolts around the tranny pan but
the tranny fluid did not coming out. I don't know if I got the right
bolt or not. Do I have to wait for the fluid to come out? Or I did not
get the right bolt.

No hex head. Look for a round head with a square hole that a 3/8 inch
ratchet will snap into. Replace the washer. Use Honda fluid.

As said earlier - you don't drop the pan. Just hope you don't get
a leak from unscrewing those bolts.

Honda automatic trannies are recirculating with no filter. Just
drain out 2.5 quarts from a small round bolt (facing right) with a
3/8 square fitting located somewhere near the front axle on the
right. It helps to drain it while its warm. The drain bolt may
be magnetic, so clean it off before putting it back in. The
washer is the same 14mm that can be used for the oil drain bolt.
Copper or aluminum doesn't matter - but the dealer will sell an
aluminum one.

Oh you are telling me I should not unscrew hex head bolt! Now I
remember
what I did wrong. I did the last time tranny fluid change when you
said unscrewing a square hole. now I got it what I'm looking for.
thanx :-)))
