if you are looking at engine at your right hand should be a dipstick colored orange and look past the dipstick and you will see a nut 3/4 or bigger above the transmission remove and pour the fluid.

for small amounts, service through the dipstick opening.

Use only genuine Honda manual transmission fluid. It is Honda OEM part number 08798-9031. Before 1996 it is acceptable to use 10W-30 motor oil, however, I would use the new specially formulated fluid which has additives to extend the life of your transmission. It will be money well spent.

Why did the transmission on a 1988 Honda Accord stop working after washing the engine?

The metal transmission screw-in dipstick was removed and lost. This left the transmission fluid filler hole open. Normally water does not enter this location from above if the hood is closed. But since the engine was being washed, the washing fluid entered the transmission and mixed with the transmission fluid. The contamination caused the transmission to begin to cease normal expected hydraulic pressure. Transmission stopped working. Solution: Drain with a pump and refill the transmission fluid and replace the metal dipstick.
