For the manual transmission only: Remove drain plug on bottom of transmission to drain. Fill plug is located on right side of transmission and is large diameter (about 1 inch). With car on level ground, fill until no more oil can be added (runs out the fill hole) then replace plug. Oil capacity is about 2-1/2 quarts. A small funnel with a piece of hose attached will be necessary to fill. Service manual recommends 10w-30 motor oil in the transmission. I have found smoother, lighter shifting action by using 0W-30 (yes, that's zero) Mobil 1(the lightest you can find) in the transmission. 342,000 miles and still going strong. Drew

A 1986-89 5-Speed transmissions will interchange if Fuel injected you must change with fuel injected Transmission or use a cerebrated transmission with a special bushing to extend main shaft. Some flywheels may have to be changed to accept special bushing. I am currently doing the same thing I found a transmission for $275. with 125 thousand miles on it.

The battery size for a 1988 Honda Accord LX is a size 25. The battery can be purchased at any auto parts store.
i dont think there is one just a drain and fill. if there is a spring and ball in the drain pay attention to how they come out. i blew my trainy by not putting them in right. Honda Accords do not have transmission fluid filters. That is why they recommend changing the transmission fluid so often. If you can change your own oil, you can change the transmission fluid - it is easy.
