there is a drain plug under the tranny on the driver side of the tranny it is a 22mm or a 7/8 bolt unbolt and change the filter on the top of tranny

Ok. That's part of the answer. Next bits... Once drained how much and what fluid do I need (I had my manuals stolen and don't know th capacities)?

I've also heard that simply draining the fluid and refilling it is only half a job. Some other forums recommend a professional job using some sort of drain pump machine thingy.

Use only ATF-Z1 fluid from your local Honda dealer. You are looking at 4.1 quarts by the charts but you won't be able to drain every drop; so 4 will do it.

Also, it's recommended to repeat the process twice (for a total of 3 times).

Good Luck! - Z -

Oh, also, I have read bad things about flushing. I believe it as the TSB from Honda that I read is where I get the 3 times total. - Z -
