Its a short stick on the passnger side of the engine compartment. if you look down from behind the passenger side headlight you cant miss it. its red or orange in color.

honda made it so small because they didnt want people to mistake it for the oil dipstick, nor did they want the average consumer to bother the transmission

How do you know that you need transmission fluid on a honda accord ex. I looked at the dip stick and saw nothing.

If you looked at the dip stick and saw nothing that is probably a bad sign. Most dip stick have markers on them in order to gauge how much fluid is in the transmission. Look at your dipstick closely and make sure you fill your transmission until it is between these markers. The markers are usually down by the end or tip of the dip stick. Be sure you do not over fill the transmission. I hope this helps you out at least a little.

Where do you put transmission fluid in 1988 honda accord

If this is a manual trany you need to fill from under the car on the side of the case, if your car has an automatic trany then open the hood and look at the left side of trany it will be behind the radiator fan on the trany way down you will see a dip stick this is where you check the level and fill or add fluid, you add into the same hole as the dip stick goes into, when checking the level of the trany oil make sure the car is on level ground and engine is warm, the dip stick unscrews to remove and when checking the level just put back in hole dont screw down to check level, then remove and it just read near full, if between add and full thats okay, if at add then add a pint go through gear and recheck.

Where can i find the transmission dip stick

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The dipstick is on the left side if you're actually facing the car under the hood. its way down deep just on the right side of the battery but lower than the battery.
If it is standard there isn't any dip stick. You just loosen a bolt on the side of the transmission and check the fluid level with your finger.

Please Do RATE my solution, If found Helpful,

Could you tell me where to put the transmission fluid in a 1988 honda accord dx. I can't seem too find it.

If there is a dip stick to show you the level of the fluid in the transmission, the transmission fluid is added through the dip stick tube. With the dip stick out, place a funnel in the tube opening and pour the fluid into the funnel.

Where do you put the gear fluid in the 96 accord?


If you mean transmission fluid? It goes in the same place where your dip stick goes into. You need a small end, long funnel.

Take Transmission Dip Stick out, insert funnel and add manufactured recommended fluid as nedded. DO NOT OVERFILL

Where is the transmission fluid go in a 1991 honda

Looking at the car from the front, the dip stick/filler port for the transaxle is down very low at the left hand side of the engine, close to being under the battery. It is normally yellow or orange. Follow the large water hose that runs down next to your battery. The dip stick handle is right along side of that hose (to the right of it) down low. It will either pull out or unscrew. This is where you add transmission fluid as well as checking the level.
Hope this helps you.

Is there a check fluid stic for transmission fluid? I searched my engine and could not find one. 1993 Honda Accord w/ slipping transmission.

there is alot of cars that do not have a dip stick..thus having to check fluid by loosing a bolt on the transmission pan. This also is the fill point, If it starts to seep out of the hole you know you have enough fluid! It should say exact under transmission in your owners manual
