It's a short dipstick, located at the front of the engine compartment, very low, towards the bottom of the radiator.

My 1998 Honda civic ex won't move but the motor


Have you just replaced the clutch? Taken out the transaxle, and put it back in? Are you sure transmission was in good condition before this? If so, review your procedure carefully to be sure you got it all back right.
Watch the slave cylinder while someone depresses clutch. You should see the little plunger move slightly out and move the clutch lever back. The lever moves the release bearing inside bell housing into contact with the pressure plate. If slave cylinder doesn't move at all, try bleeding again. The plunger has to move when clutch is engaged.
I'm not sure what you mean by "will shift but won't go into gear". You mean it's actually going into a gear position and car won't move? Or it won't go into any gear, period. As if you had no clutch?

1991 Honda Civic DX Why am I able to push the car with automatic transmission while it's in park? The car won't start and run, either.


If the car rolls with the shifter in the park position and the starter will not engage the engine than the transmission is not in park. This could be caused by a bad shift cable. In order to confirm this you will need to find the area where the shift cable attaches to the transmission. While a helper runs the shifter through the gears check the linkage at the transmission to see if it is moving. If the linkage is not moving that there is a problem with the shift cable or the shifter. Some disassembly of the center council may be necessary to gain access to the area where the shift cable attaches to the shifter to see if it is still attached to the shifter. If it is and the shifter is moving the cable than the cable will need to be replaced. If the cable is moving the linkage at the trans than there is probably something wrong internally inside of the transmission. If you have any questions or need further help I will be happy to do what I can!

Car engine starts but does not move


Something you can try, but you would have to be very lucky for this to be the problem.

If you haven't already, check your transmission fluid level. If the fluid level gets low enough in the transmission it can cause the car to not move at all.

Please do the following, unless you already have;

Start the engine and let it run 6 to 8 minutes to allow the engine and fluids to reach normal operating temperature.

Remove the dip stick to the transmission fluid, wipe it off, put it back in, and then take it out again to read it. If there is no fluid on the dip stick, add 3/4 of a quart of transmission fluid in through the pipe that you took the dip stick out of. Put it in gear and see if there's any diference, if not, add the other 1/4 of the bottle and then try to put it in gear again and see if it will move.

Continue adding 1/4 of a quart at a time until the car starts to move, or the transmission level showing on the dip stick is where it should be.

Best of luck!

Transmission dipstick location


the dip stick is located in engine compartment if you stand in front of car with hood open the dip stick is to your left on side of trany, if this car is stick shift and not automatic then theres no dip stick its checked from side of trany by removing a plug and fill until oil runs out a little a lift would be the way to check it, the car must be level
NOTE; some models have a tube with dip stick and some a cap that unscrews on top of trany and when checking fluid you dont screw in just stick in hole to check level when done then screw back in and tighten,heres a diagram to help you find it.c083006.gif

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


Hi!!

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.
