There is a fill plug and a drain plug located on the transmission the upper bolt is where you would fill it at. need a socket or wrench. you fill it till it runs out level of the bolt hole.
Honda MTF (manual transmission fluid) / MTF2
for manual transmissions, you want to use Honda mtf. normal off the shelf mtf will cause grinds over time.
If its a 89 Honda CRX si wih manual transmission, use genuine Honda MTF. You can purchase it at any Honda or Acura dealer near you.
Recommended in the manual: Honda MTF (or equivelant). If uavailable the repair manual states that you can use SAE 10W-30 engine oil.

Well they all use ATF or MTF Automatic or manual so you can use the atf fluid which is pink for your transmission
It is important to keep the right types of fluids in a car. The correct transmission fluid for a manual 2002 PT Cruiser is 5w30 synchromesh MTF.
You can use 10-30 engine oil in the manual gearbox, however Honda did later release a better gearbox oil with friction modifiers - Honda MTF - recommended! I'm unsure for automatics, Honda ATF is the obvious choice but the type (dexron II / dexron III etc) I'm unsure about.
2.4 Honda MTF Fluid -JdM Puga
you can flush if you wish, but at a cost. Honda mechanic told me that i have to use oil supplied by Honda and that i should run the car with new oil for 1 week and then replace with new oil, again from Honda. MTF (Manual trans fluid) or ATF (Automatic trans fluid). In each case approx 3 Litres is required to fill the transmission costing about £40
Just use ATF automatic or MTF manual tranny fluid
Yes, you can put 10w40 in your transmission. Acura states in their owner's manual that motor oil can be used to fill the transmission. BUT... this would only be a stop gap measure. Honda and Acura prefer that you use their MTF (manual transmission fluid). Adding motor oil to the transmission will not damage it, however, shifting may be noticeably stiffer, and the motor oil will have to be changed more frequently. Honda MTF is especially formulated to last longer, and work more smoothly with this specific application. A quart bottle of the stuff costs about $6 at your local Honda dealer... DON'T buy it at an Acura dealership, for some reason it cost three dollars more for the exact same stuff with a different label on it.
You say, oil, so I assume you have a manual transmission which probably uses Honda MTF. Automatics after 1995 use Honda ATF and before some use Dexron. My advice would be to go to your local Acura or Honda dealer and purchase the oil there. Honda transmissions shift better with the OEM fluid, especially the Automatics. Don't take a chance with the wrong lube. Spen the little extra and purchase ACURA/HONDA lube.
If it is an auto it is most likely your torque converter changing the fluid will help slightly but not a whole lot. If it is manual then it could be your clutch or your trans fluid trying changing fluid and replace with Honda MTF if this does not help have your clutch checked out to see if it is almost worn out You can also adjust the clutch on a manual civic to get a few hundred more miles out of it. (Depending on how you drive)
I use gear lube, but check the owners manual or call a mechanic they would be able to tell you for sure The manufacturer recommended fluid is either HONDA MTF (manual transmission fluid) or an alternative is an SF-rated motor oil in a 10W30 or 10W40 viscosity. So yes, you can use a regular motor oil like Castrol, Pennzoil, or Valvoline 10W30. However, the preferred fluid is Honda MTF. For synthetic upgrades, other options include Amsoil 5W30 Synchromesh Fluid, Royal Purple Synchromesh Fluid, or Redline MTL. It is NOT recommended to use typical gear oils like 75W90 or 80W90. The viscosity is not compatible with the Honda manual transmissions. I used Royal Purple 10W-30 in mine and it works just fine..... BUT, I will be upgrading to RP Synchromesh Fluid. == == == == == == == == == == == ==
You would use a Synthetic Manual Synchromesh Transmission Fluid (MTF) SAE 5W-30.Good Luck and Remember.Change Your Mind, Not Your Oil.Use the First In Synthetic Motor Oil's.See My Bio For more information.

It depends on what year it is. I have an 89 Honda Accord LX and my trans takes motor oil (10w 30) and look on the trans for a drain plug when you find it look up on the left hand side and you will see another plug that's the fill to plug this is for a 1989 Honda accord you can use motor oil but u should still use Honda trany fluid it will not make noise like reg oil will and just fill tell it cums out the 2nd plug up to the left from the drain plug nere the cv joint about 2.5 quarts Use MTF in M/Ts Using motor oil in the trans of an M/T-equipped Honda (except a Passport) may cause a moaning noise from the differential when turning left or when accelerating. To avoid this problem, use only Genuine Honda MTF (P/N 08798-9016, H/C 4928271). Not only does MTF contain special additives for smoother shifting, it extends the fluid change interval to 90,000 miles. Capacity 2.6 qt (US) 1. With transmission oil at operating temperature, engine OFF, and car on level ground, remove drain plug and drain transmission. 2. Reinstall drain plug with new washer, and refill to proper level. NOTE: Drain plug washer should be replaced at every oil change. On the passenger side of the transmission, there is a drain plug on the bottom that takes a 3/8 drive ratchet to remove. Above this and to the left next to the CV axle is another plug for filling. Fill the oil to just below this top hole and transmission will be full
Any ATF for automatic transmission or MTF for manual speaks for it self. If you upgrade all your fluids to Synthetic then you get better milage and car will run better, preform and last long time.
== == It's relatively simple: First you locate your tranny drain and filler bolts (your manual should indicate where they are and what they look like) . They'll be underneath the car on the "passenger" side of the transmission. Remove the drain bolt with a 3/4 ratchet after letting the car run for a while. Let the MTF run out completely. Replace the drain bolt. Remove filler bolt with a 19mm socket. Using a fluid pump, fill the transmission with just under 2 quarts of Honda Manual Transmission Fluid. When it runs out the hole, stop pumping. Replace the filler bolt and you're good to go. (P.S. The filler bolt is the one that's higher than the drain bolt.) == == == == == ==
