Manual transmissions do not have a dipstick. There is a fill plug on the passenger side of the transaxle just above and behind where the axle goes into the transmission. Remove the plug. If fluid runs outor you stick your finger in the hole and feel fluid just below the bottom edge of the hole then it is full. If it is low add 30 weight motor oil or 90 weight gear oil till it runs out of thr hole then replace the plug.

I it is a manual transmission it has no dipstick. If it is A/T it is located on the front of the transmission near the engine block. It is very small and has no tube. Look carefully.

It is hard to find. Look where the engine bolts to the transmission.

The dipstick for the 2004 Honda Accord is located beside of the battery. A funnel is needed to reach the tube to add fluid.

If it is an Automatic just open the hood and look down at where the transmission bolts to the engine. There you will see the dipstick.
