Default Manual Transmission fluid - Where do i put it in?

I bought a 2000 Honda Accord 2.3 4 cylinder; 5 speed last fall. 100050 miles on it now.
I just recieved a package in the mail from the dealership with a oil additive; to help keep the engine temp down; and a manual transmission fluid additive. I changed my oil this weekend and added the oil additive, but now i'm confused about the tranny fluid.

Where do i put it in? I'm fairly auto-inclined, but this is my first manual tranny ive ever owned. Even my father, who always services his own vehicles, doesnt know where to put it in. I think its his stubborness around "foreign" cars, but maybe it really isn't that straight forward.

Anyone have any photos to point me in the right direction? Or even a link to a How-to would be nice.

Thanks in advance.

around the transmission motor mount there is a reverse switch that(if i'm not wrong) it has a yellow and green wire goin to it so that switch you can take it of with a 19mm and you can put throught there.....it work for me all the time

good luck

it is straight forward, not hard to do. Not sure I would be putting an additive in there but...

Here is a diagram of your tranny housing.
Click the image to open in full size.
#15 is the fill bolt, #17 is a crush washer.
#12 is the drain bolt, #16 is a crush washer.

You can access that by jacking up and supporting the car then removing the passenger side wheel. I use a hose inserted into the fill hole and attached to a small funnel to fill the tranny with fluid.

Thanks for the prompt reply and beautiful diagram.

Can i ask why you, personally, wouldn't put an additive in there? The one that i recieved is about a 5oz bottle. I dont have the bottle in front of me to say exactly what it is. It arrived in my mailbox 2 weeks before the motor turned over to 100000, So i assume everyone gets one when the manufacturers warranty goes obsolete. I could be mistaken.....

I'm just very apprehensive about putting any addition additive in my fluids (engine oil, tranny fluid, etc.).

If you stick to the scheduled maintenance I don't see the need for it.

Not very good at reading up there are you?

There's a drain bolt and a fill bolt.

Nope, all honda manual tranny's have a drain bolt and a fill bolt in generally the same places. You sir don't need to be a tool, read before you post Click the image to open in full size.

If you read my statement I said you have a drain and fill bolt yourself. And it's almost in the exact same location. If you were to:

1) Actually look at it yourself
2) Do a search on the hundreds of posts on the internet on it

You'd find that you do indeed, have the exact same setup and that your car is not special what so ever.

The manufacturer doesn't send out bottles of additive, that was something your dealership did as a service. And the original warranty on that car was 3 years, 36,000 miles, so it was over a long time ago.

I am curious about the additive though, what was it?

Also, you need something like 2.1 or 2.2 quarts, pick up three quarts from your local dealer ($5.90 plus tax per bottle). Since there’s most likely a list of things you need, take a look at this site:

http://www.handa-accessories.com/accmaint00.html

oil filters, maybe a new oil pan plug, new crush washers (one for each oil change), air filters (one on the engine, two inside (cabin filters, also called a/c filters), the shin-etzu grease if your windows are a little slow going up and down, etc, and of course the manual transmission fluid.

Yup, its really straight forward...

Jack the passenger side up (and remember the safety brace Click the image to open in full size. )
There will be two bolts on the lower/back outer tranny case.
The lower bolt is drain, upper is fill, self explanitory
position your oil pan
About 2 quarts of fluid will come out and it will take about two to fill it untill it comes out the fill hole.
Wait until it stops running out the fill hole and re install the bolt.
You do NOT need to remove the wheel unless you dont have a funnel that allows you to pour it in while you are under the car. (it will need to be shorter and helps to have one side raised for side pouring)
30 min. job taking your time...
good luck!

So the car doesn't need to be flat? Is using ramps on the front only OK then? (as opposed to ramps, then jack stands for the back which can be done but is much more of a pain).

the car should be as level as possible (helps to start out on level ground) otherwise the fill-to-spill technique isn't going to be actuate.

I neglected to mention lowering the car off its jack while the new fluid is draining out, and then jack it back up once its done. If you were to jack up both sides only in front you may end up with a low level because the fluid is draining out the back of the tranny. (if you fill a glass with water to the brim and tilt it back, water will pour out...)

Its just easier to mess with one jack rather than two. Click the image to open in full size.

Should this job be done when the car is warm, or cold? I.e. should I drive the car for a bit prior to doing it, like with an oil change?

i would assume it will drain faster if the fluid is somewhat warm. not sure if that is the correct way to do it though.

x2: Warm oil will drain faster than cold, although in a manual tranny the oil doesn't warm up as much as in an automatic.
