and the fill is the 17mm hex next to the right side axle. its easy if you look.

As said before me, the drain plug is on the bottom side of the transmission, it accepts a direct 3/8" Ratchet head.

The fill HOLE on my 92' Civic DX tranmission, is actually the same hole the dipstick goes into. You'll need a long neck funnel to reach it.

No problem.

3/8 Drive for the Drain Plug.

17mm for the Fill Plug.

Also, use one of these to fill it. Makes it MUCH easier plus you have gravity on your side.



Made it for $2.50 and 2 minutes.

How in the hell are you suppose to fill the transmission from the side? well.. with a tube ofcourse. .. well I got the idea it was suppose to go into the dip hole from what the manual said, it never mentioned a 'fill hole' on the side... I'm still OK right? I have an Automatic though.

Manual Transmission and Gear fluids come in bottles with a "nipple" at the top so you can tip the bottle over and squeeze. Doing this will get you nowhere and give you a hernia. Instead, you can be above your engine bay slowly pouring down the funnel and let gravity take over.
