Question about 1996 Honda Passport
I need to know how to put transmission fluid in my honda passport.
Unfortunately, you have a closed system transmission, there is no dipstick or filler tube. I have a 96 passport and to have fluid replaced in the transmission you need to take it to a garage that is equipped to fill closed transmissions. This generally runs about $100.00 at the dealership. I was on my way to get my transmission serviced when the trans broke. Don't wait long if you're having issues.

This is the one year Honda/Izuzu did not put a fill tube in the engine compartment for the automatic transmission. They thought it would prevent contamination of the fluids. The fill plug is on the top front of the transmission. It requires a small pump to lift the fluid up and into the hole.
WARNING: Do not remove the plug until you complete the following.
To add fluid the vehicle must be completley level, and it helps to have it elevated so you can get under it. The best method is a hoist/lift in a dealership, but I was able to use some heavy jack stands.
The engine must be running and the fluids warm and the gearshift in drive. Be sure to set all of the brakes and use caution.

Are you talking AUTOMATIC or MANUAL?
AUTOMATIC = filler tube under the hood.
MANUAL = filler bolt [ like oil drain bolt ] on side of transmission

If you have an automatic transmission, you should take it to a mechanic or at least purchase the special fluid temperature gauge needed to do it right. You add fluid through the overfill screw opening found on the transmission fluid pan (there is no dipstick or underhood component on the 96' and later models). It should be located in one corner of the pan; there's also a drain plug is more toward the middle. Never open the overfill screw with the engine stopped - it should always be running and warm.
For a manual transmission, the fill plug is also on the pan, but it is located on the side.

on level ground with the engine at idle pull out the dipstick wipe it off and check that the fluid is between the two marks. Keep the level near the top mark but do not overfill.

You should just go to Honda and purchase it from them. You can go up to the parts counter and either give them your year/make/model or your vin and they will give you exactly what fluid(its the same on all A/T honda's) and the correct amount need. They made the car, they know best.

If you have a dipstick for the transmission fluid, you can pour it in very slowly through there.
Otherwise, on the upper side of your transmission, there will be a plug that you pull off and fill the fluid up until it just starts to spill out before you close the plug
