Usually through the level hole, not an easy job unless you have a lift.

Unless there is a leak it should not be losing any fluid.

Check your owner's manual.

If your Honda has a manual transmission, then you do not check the fluid. It has grease in it.

It's not the oil dipstick.

Run your vehicle long enough to heat the transmission. Then stop on a level surface. With your transmission in neutral or park, check the dipstick. Keep the engine running. You cannot check most transmissions with the engine shut off.


Standards and definitions? At what point is the transition between oil, grease, and a solid? Is it dependent upon chemical composition? Or perhaps it is temperature dependent? Or maybe the viscosity is the determining factor?

Whatever the case, an overly technical answer is of little benefit to those asking questions in this forum. The asker doesn't really care about this. The asker is concerned with transmission fluid. It is valid to assume the transmission is automatic rather than manual. But if it is manual, then it doesn't hurt to give the asker enough information to know to ask other questions.

Unbelievable......Jack, you know Jack sh!t about cars.....

If it's an auto it should have a dipstick although some don't and it's a dealer job to check. On a manual box there's usually a nut on the side of the gearbox you remove and fill up with whatever type of oil (NOT grease....) Honda recommend.

EDIT: And now he's trying to say the difference between oil and grease is a matter of semantics. Quit while you're winning dude.....
