the same place you check the fluid from, get a funnel with a small end on it, remove the dip stick, put the funnel in the same hole and add. Be sure to check the level and do not overfill it, autos are very particular about how how much fluid is in them.Be sure it's not the engine oil dip stick!! Also, the dip stick should say on it when to check the level of the fluid... most cars you check the tranny fluid when it's idling in park, but some honda's automatics are checked with the car off.

the dip stick for the tranny should be on the drivers side of the engine. the fluid goes in the dip stick tube. use a funnel to avoid spilling it. also make sure it is the tranny dipstick, and not the oil. it should have some kind of marking on the stick to let you know which one it is. i hope this is more helpful than someone telling you to get away from you car, or telling you to drive it off a cliff.

The transmission dipstick, which is where you will also add fluid, is on the right side of the engine. Between the dist. and the rad. down on the transmission. In all my experience with Honda transmissions I would NOT suggest pouring the treatment into the transmission! Honda transmissions do not take to kindly to other fluids poured in them which is why you can only use Honda fluid (dextron 3). When other fluid is put into the transmission it can cause problem to occur. If you are having a problem with your transmission and that is why you want to use the treatment then the treatment is not going to help. If you are using it because you think that it will help to prevent anything to happen then you are actually going to cause problems.The best thing for you to do is just change the fluid every 15k miles. *I have seen cases that if you catch a bad transmission in the VERY early stages of a failing transmission that if you change the fluid every time to every other oil change then it can help your transmission.
