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.
1988 accord will not go into 5 gear
On any vehicle, the filter and trans fluid should be done at least every 50,000 miles. I actually change ALL my trans fluid every 30,000.
Don't do it. Use gear oil.

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.
the clutch is setup to a mechanical clutch cable line. there is no reservoir.

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.
It needs a rebuild.
I have a similar issue my '88 accord LXI automatic does not have reverse and it grinds in park and drive. Told the shift fork in the transmission and shift for bushing are going out and the tranny needed to be rebiult
