Automatic, use the dip stick tube. Only fill within the marks on the dipstick. Use Honda ATF only!!!































Manual, you have to jack the car up and crawl underneath. There are 2 bolts on the side of the transmission, 1 higher than the other. Remove the higher bolt and then add fluid, only add fluid until it starts pouring out of the bolt hole then close it back up. Once again use Honda fluids only.

Sorry but you should not add fluid because you think you should, only add fluid because you know that it is low.































Add it with a funnel into the dipstick hole. If that appears to be too small look for a plug on the top of the transmission which will have the letters "ATF" on it.
