If you are asking about the automatic ... the drain plug is on the passenger side and can be reached without lifting the car. It seems like they put some sort of "loctite" type product on the threads as the plug was difficult to remove. You can't change all of the oil ... about 3 quarts can be replaced ... see the owner's manual for exact amount. You could do the drain & refill a couple of times if you want to do a more thorough oil replacement. You might start by not putting all of the oil back in and check the level as you don't want to overfill. One of the *long* neck funnels is useful for adding the new oil thru the dipstick opening. There is no filter that you can replace. Honda only recommends their autotrans fluid however I used the Redline synthetic ATF that meets their specifications.
don't understand about the water- but do know how to cure the sludge issue - drain oil completely- replug pan- add 1 and half gallons of K1 KEROSENE-enough that it shows full on dipstick-DO NOT START! - let sit for 24 hours - drain and put OLD oil back in -run for a couple minutes- this will ensure all kerosene out- then drain oil and change filter- did this on a 99 and got a **** lot of slime out of pan
