When you say fluid ... I assume you talking about the oil and oil filter.
If you changing oil here are the steps :
1> Jack up the car, make sure you do not put the jack on the oil pan as it is most likely it will damage the oil pan.. rather put it on the frame which is little bit to the left of the oil pan. Trace the bolt to the rear of the oil pan.. I believe it is a 17mm bolt. Place the oil pan under the bolt and take the bolt off. Almost all your oil will drain out here. Make sure the oil cap on top of the valve cover is taken off.
2> About 10 inches to the top of the oil pan bolt .. you will find the oil filter. Usually you should be able to remove it with your hand, rotating it in an anticlockwise direction. The rest of the oil will drain out here.. so adjust the oil catcher pan accordingly.
3> Take the new oil filter and apply some of the old oil on the rubber gasket of the oil filter and tighten it back up in clock wise direction.
4>Tighten the bolt to the oil pan and lower the car from the jack or jack stand for easier access.
5> Put in 4 quarts of 5W30 or 10 W 40 through the oil cap on the valve cover.
6> Wait a few minutes and pull the car back a few feet. Check for leaks and you should be good to go.

1996 honda accord lx 4cly auto how do you drain transmission fluid from this car


Get a service manual from Autozone or a similar store. They usually run about $25. If you pull it out to check it, you might as well change it out. Most tranny filters are internal to a metal outer piece and there's no way to "check" them. Be sure to use fresh transmission fluid and make sure it's the right TYPE. The store can help you out with this as well.

Want to change the transmission filter on 91 honda accord lx but isnt sure where the trans pan is


The transmission drain plug is located on the passenger side of the case. It has a square fitting, use a 3/8" drive ratchet and extension to remove it.On the 1994-1997 Accords, there is no way to drain the torque converter, or change the filter, without transmission removal, so as a result, you are only changing about half the fluid. Refill it with 2.5 quarts of Dexron or Honda fluid.
