    Try bleeding the clutch, before the tranny fluid, and i believe its a little over 2 qrts, best way to fill is to take out the vehicle speed sensor.

    I'm not sure if the Civic is the same as my Accord, but I fill mine at a bolt just above the pass. axle. If you look at the tranny from the side with the pass wheel off, you can see where the axle goes into the tranny. Just left and slightly up is the fill bolt.

    Hope this applies to you :)

    thats the way to do it :) . My friend fills his through the vss. Just because it easier. I bought a funnel with a hose connected from autozone. Its a slow process but effective. hope this helps also. [​IMG]
