Just installed a cv joint on a 94 civic dx and had to drain the transaxle fluid but you cant find the place to fill the transaxle back with oil?

if you are in the front facing the engine it is on the left side under the car on the trans. the bolt will be almost directly above and toward the back of tranny drain bolt wich is a bolt that has a square openeing

Auto transaxle fluid in installed through the dipstick tube. Manual transaxle fluid is installed through fill port at left side of unit at lower right side of transaxle.

94 civic transmission fluid drain

If you have an automatic transaxle, there isn't a drain plug. You remove the fluid by removing the bottom pan on the transaxle, or taking it to a shop that has a vacuum pump to pump the fluid out through the fill hole.

If you are going to simply drain and fill the transaxle, find the drain plugon the bottom of the transaxle--should be a 24mm head--remove the plug and let the fluid drain. Install new fluid through dipstick passage (use only Hyundai SP3 fluid!), should take about 4qts. Checked fluid level with vehicle running and gear shift selector in neutral position. This transaxle does not have a servicable filter, even if there is an oil filter mounted to the top of the transaxle, it is a lifetime filter. Depending on milage you may want to take the vehicle to a shop and have a transaxle flush performed

On a 1998 Honda Civic there is a transmission drain bolt located on the bottom of the housing. Loosen the bolt and drain all of the old fluid. Using Honda ATF fluid top off the transmission.

The fill / check plug is on the passenger side of the transaxle directly behind the CV axle. It is a 17mm bolt. You will need a special funnel fitted with a long tube to add transaxle fluid. 10w30 motor oil is the correct fluid. Fluid should be added until the fluid level is even with the bottom of the plug hole. (Fill it until it begins to drip out)

Assuming it is a manual transmission: Remove the lower drain plug on the transaxle body and allow all existing fluid to drain completely. Replace the drain plug and remove the fill valve, located higher on the transaxle body. You'll need a pump assembly and vinyl hose to pump the transmission fluid into the transaxle. Any good auto parts store sells these plastic pumps at nominal prices. The pump assembly screws onto the top of the transmission fluid bottle. Pump the new oil through the vinyl hose into the transaxle until it begins to come back out of the fill hole. Then screw the fill plug back in. It a very easy process once you've found the drain and fill plugs and get yourself situated underneath the transaxle.

Yes , the transaxle is a transmission on a front wheel drive vehicle

to change the transaxle fluid on any vehicle if there is no drain plug you would just simply take down the entire pan start at a corner that way you know exactly where the fluid is gonna come from.

To change the transmission fluid is not particularly difficult. 1. Raise the vehicle as needed and support on stands. 2. Place a suitable drain pan under the transaxle and remove the pan bolts. As you remove the bolts the pan will loosen allowing the fluid to drain out into the drain pan. Be careful to avoid a spill outside the drain pan. 3. While the pan is off is an excellent time to change the transmission filter. 4. Re install the pan. lower the car and refill the transaxle with fresh fluid to the proper level. Alternate way; Remove the pressure hose to the radiator cooler. Start the engine and let the pump drain the fluid into a suitable container. As soon as the flow stops turn the engine off. Reconnect the line and fill the transaxle to the proper level with new fluid.

A 1989 Honda Civic did not make use of a transmission fluid dipstick. Instead there are two bolts available. A filler bolt and a drain bolt.

This shouldn't actually be necessary, but here goes. Remove the vehicle speed sensor and the transaxle drain plug. Drain the fluid (dispose of properly). Replace the drain plug and tighten it to 29to 39 ft-lbs. Fill the transaxle to a correct level withmercron tranny fluid. Please do not overfill or you can damage your tranny and end up replacing it.

Unfortunately there is no drainplug on an automatic transmission fluid pan ( unless an after market drain plug has been installed ) You have to drop the pan

You actually have to remove the panel and allow the fluid to drain. Reseal the cover with cylicone and refill through the resivior. You can even use a fluid suction tool to suck out the fluid and refil through the resivior.

Yes...just drain and refill a couple of times till the fluid is bright red again !

On a drain and refill about 3 quarts, if the transmissions completely empty of fluid 6.3 quarts.

The transmission fluid on a Chevy Trailblazer is changed by placing a drain pan under the vehicle, removing the drain plug, and allowing it to empty. The drain plug is then re-installed and fluid added through the filler tube until full.

Remove as much fluid from the Civic brake fluid reservoir as possible, using a syringe, turkey baster, etc.. Open the wheel bleeder valves and let the lines drain. Refill the system with new fluid and bleed the lines to finish the fluid change.

On These Models, it is not necessary to check the fluid level at regular intervals. At the specified time intervals, the transaxle fluide should be drained and replaced at 60,000 miles or 48 months. To check the fluids, its hard(the car must be kept level while bing raised) With the engine running and the transaxle at normal operating temperature(idled for 3 to 5 minutes) Locate the check plug on the transaxle. The check plug is located near the pan, adjacent to the engine oil drain plug. Place an oil container under the plug and remove it. Observe the fluid as it drips into the pan, indicating correct fluid level. The fluid level should be at the bottom of the check hole. if fluid pours out excessively, the transaxle may have been overfilled. Double-check, if no fluid drips from the check hole, add small amouts of fluid throuh the fill cap at the top of the transaxle until the level is at the bottom of the check hole. If the fluid in the drain pan is dark reddish-brown color, or if it has a hurned smell, the fluid should be changed

1FLUID SHOULD BE DRAINED AFTER DRIVEN (HOT); its more effective. AUTOMATIC1a. Place the drain pan under the transaxle and remove the transaxle drain plug. 1b. Remove all but 2 [at opposite corners] of the pan retaining bolts. 2. Carefully pry the transaxle pan loose with a screwdriver. Dont damage the pan or transaxle gasket surface or leaks could develop. 3. Remove the pan and gasket. Carfully clean gasket surface of the transaxle to remove all traces of the old gasket and sealant. 4. Drain any remaining fluid from the transaxle pan, clean it with solvent and dry it thoroughly. Make sure to install the magnets in their original postions (indentations) in the pan. 5. Remove the retaining bolts and detach the old filter from transaxle. 6. Install new filter and tighten the bolts. 7. Make sure the gasket surface on the transaxle pan is clean, then install a new gasket. Put the pan in place against the transaxle and install the bolts [finger tight]. It's easier to first install 2 bolts at opposite corners to hold the pan in place for you. Working around the pan, tighten each bolt a little at a time until the final torque figure listed is reached 84-96 in-lbs dont over tighten bolts. Then reinstall drain plug and tighten to 25-32. 8. Install new fluid. With engine running, cycle gear selector through all positions a few times to circulate fluid throughout system. Then check fluid level to confirm an adequate refill.MANUAL1. After vehicle has been driven to warm fluid raise the vehicle and place on jackstands. Place the drain pan under transaxle, remove the drain plug and allow the old fluid to drain into the pan. 2. Clean threads on drain plug and hole, and reinstall the drain plug securely. 3. Add new fluid through the filler hole until it begins to run out of the filler hole. Install the check/fill plug and tighten it securley.

If your transmission fluid is in bad condition and you choose to immediately drain and fill the transmission with fresh fluid until all old fluid has been removed, then this can cause problems. It is highly recommended to just perform one drain + fill, and then wait at least a few thousand miles before performing another drain + fill. Do once more after a few thousand miles further and by now most of the old fluid is diluted down enough. You see, when you drain + fill Civic transmissions, you are only getting out approximately 1/3 of the total fluid, Not all will drain out from the drain bolt hole. After doing the above steps, perform a drain + fill every 30,000 miles for best maintenance. Never changing your transmission fluid can cause disastrous consequences.

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.

The automatic transaxle fluid dipstick is between the engine and the battery ( the manual transaxle does not have a dipstick )
