The holes are visible when you take off the front right wheel. The filler bolt is a 17mm bolt that is just above and to the left of the drain bolt which is just a 3/8 drive bolt. I bought a plastic oil holding funnel and tube thing at Walmart in the automotive section for a few bucks that I used to fill up my transmission. You fill up a plastic piece that you can sit in the engine bay and then unlock the locking piece and it'll drain the oil through the tube into the fitting that you sit inside the transmission.

There's a website for a local parts shop that gives good specs for most cars.

http://www.alliedautostores.com/Cata...logSubCat.aspx

Just put in your car and year and click on View Specifications at the top right.

You can go with Amsoil GM Synchromesh or just go with Honda MTF.
