Things You'll Need:
Ramps or a floor jack Jack stands Drain pan Ratchet New drain plug washer Torque wrench New Transmission Fluid Step 1: Drive the accord for 15 to 20 minutes to bring the car to a normal operating temperature. Raise the vehicle with ramps or a floor jack. Support it securely with jack stands. Step 2: Place a large drain pan on the ground beneath the transmission. Find the drain plug on the bottom of the transmission and remove it with a ratchet. Step 3: Allow the fluid to drain out until it stops. Install the drain plug with a new washer. In Honda Accords from 1990 to 2000, tighten the drain plug to 36 foot pounds with a torque wrench. In Accords from 1984 to 1989, tighten the plug to 29 foot pounds. Step 4: Refill the transmission with Honda Premium Transmission Fluid. Alternatively, you can use Dexron III automatic Transmission Fluid. Measure the amount of fluid that drained from the transmission and put the same amount of new fluid into the transmission using a funnel. Take care not to overfill the transmission, as this can cause damage. Step 5: Return the Accord to level ground. Start the engine and allow it to idle for a minute or two. Move the gear selector through all the gears, ending in the "Park" position. Step 6: Check the automatic transmission fluid level. Add enough fluid to bring the level to 1/8 inch below the "Add" mark on the dipstick. Step 7: Let the engine run for 15 to 20 minutes to allow it to reach normal operating temperature. Check the fluid level again. The fluid level should be within the "Hot" range on the dipstick. If it isn't, add fluid as needed. If the fluid level is correct, replace the dipstick and close the hood. Tips & Warnings
The intervals at which you change the automatic transmission fluid may vary depending on the year model and the conditions under which you operate the car. Be careful while draining the transmission fluid because it's very hot.
On the automatic transmission, the drain plug is located on the passenger side of the transaxle, near the front of the RF tire. Use a ratchet with a 3/8" extension to remove it (with no socket!), the plug is facing the side of the car.
Note: Changing the transmission fluid at recommended intervals is a good idea from a maintenance standpoint, but if you're having shifting problems, changing the fluid usually doesn't solve them.

The service on that vehicle is very easy. On the bottom of the transmission there is a drain plug. Pull that plug out and wait for the fluid to drain completly.

how do you take out a transmission on a 1990 Honda accord
Drain either the oil or the transmission fluid with the drain plug located underneath the front end of the car, and refill with the proper fluid. You may want to pour a quart or so of clean oil or trans fluid through when draining to flush the bad stuff out. Dont drive the car until you fix this problem, as it will cause severe engine damage in time.
With a manual transmission, it is on the passenger side of the transmission case. There are two 3/8 square plugs. One is the drain and one is the fill. With an automatic, there is no drain. You have to remove the pan.
Can you change a automatic to a 5 speed Honda Accord 1990
My 1990 Chevy celebrity does not have a drain plug on the transmission pan. Your car probably does not have one either. You could break loose a transmission line from the radiator and add fluid in the dipstick tube while the car is running until the color of the transmission fluid clears up. I am guessing you are trying to change the transmission fluid. This is how I changed my transmission fluid there are lots of videos on how to do this on youtube.

Please see and earlier question and answer re: Where is the transmission dipstick on 1990 Honda Accord LX. It may answer your question. By the way, answer is: The dipstick is located at front of transmission, next to the engine block. There is NO TUBE and the dipstick is small - look crefully! Hank.
Its probably that your tansmission is shot, either that or you havnt changed the transmission fluid and it may be dirty and built up and or the filter hasn't been changed in a while. If you look at the transmission fluid and its not a redish color and its like brown almost a oil color than you will have to bleed it out and refill with fresh transmission fluid.
It depends on if it is a manual transaxle or an automatic transaxle. If it is a manual transaxle, you can use any SG-rated 5W30 motor oil. If it is an automatic transaxle, then you need DEXRON II Automatic Transmission Fluid.
Only if you are not careful and you dont put a drain pan under it Yes, unless you have a method of catching the fluid for disposal. BTW, don't re-use the fluid.
