Question about 1996 Honda Accord
Because you say that it looks like a sealed unit, I am guessing that you have a manual tranny. I have never bothered to replace the fluid in any manual transmission I have ever had, but I have never had 200,000 miles on one either. Anyway, to get the old fluid out, remove the plug near the bottom of the tranny. It has a head that has an internal square recess. Use a socket wrench (with no socket) to get it out. To replace the fluid - find this plug and remove it before you begin - you have to squirt it into a fill hole about halfway up the transmission. When oil starts to come back out of the hole, then you know it is full. You will have to check with your auto parts store to find out what kind it takes and how much. A manual transmission has no filter.
If your tranny is an automatic, I would recommend having it flushed, because even if you remove the pan, there is still a couple of quarts still in the tranny. When they flush them, they get all of the fluid changed.
