For an automatic transmission - facing car, plug is located on left side of transmission near bottom, middle. The plug is round on the outside and has a square whole on the inside. You do not use a wrench to remove the plug but you have to use a 3,8s ratchet to remove it (the part of the ratchet were you would put a socket fits into the square hole). Be sure to replace the plug washer with a new one to avoid leaks.

there is no actual plug you must take off the bottom of the transmission pan. Also it is a good idea to change the gasket when doing so. Take out one bolt at a time starting with the narrow side and work your way across slowly letting it drain. And when putting the bolts back in be sure not to strip them or to tighten to much as it will damage the gasket. This process should take about 30-45 min.

"Honda Genuine" transmission fluid is the correct fluid type. Specifically use this type or it will cause damage.

A 1993 Honda Civic automatic transmission holds 2.9 quarts of fluid. The factory recommendation is Honda Genuine ATF-Z1 automatic transmission fluid. An alternative is a DEXRON II (now replaced by DEXRON III).

Use only genuine Honda ATF DW1 automatic transmission fluid and nothing else.

The recommended transmission fluid for a 1996 Civic is Dexron II or IID transmission fluid. Do not use Mercon fluid as it has a different formulation and may cause harm to the transmission.
