I assume you mean engine oil.
The dip stick should be inserted as far as it goes in the tube, check oil with engine at normal operating temp.

Where is the transmission dipstick

If it is an automatic then I am not sure but if it is a manual tranny then there is no dipstick. There will be a set screw/bolt on the side of the tranny that is an oil level indicator

I need to add transmission fluid,but I can't check.

Theres no dipstick on those models. Theres a little screw on the left side of the transmission, unscrew and fill it from the top (you will see a red filler cap on top of transmission) when oil starts to leak through hole, put back the screw and your done.

Nothing too serious here. Make sure you have the transmission pan securely bolted back up. Make sure & cross tighten the bolts. You refill by removing the transmission dipstick and inserting a small necked funnel into the dipstick tube. Be careful not to overfill. As it will say on the dipstick, " check fluid level while in Park and idling"

Fill auto trans fluid for 1987 Honda Accord

It's located on the right front (as u sit in the car) transaxle housing, which will be below or nearly below the battery. There are 2 types of trans. dipsticks, one is a screw in type, to check the fluid, the car should be at normal operating temperature, and the engine OFF. The screw in type dipstick should be pulled out, wipe off w/ clean rag, re-insert, but DO NOT tighten. Pull up, and check level. If u tighten the dipstick to check the level u will get a false reading, you must only push "til it makes contact. When finished, tighten by hand only, don't use a wrench.
The other type is just a push in dipstick, located in the same area, it just doesn't have any threads to tighten. Make sure it is fully inserted to check, and when done. countrycurt0
