    refill tranny with a long funnel and a 90 degree elbow, or use a suction gun...

    or a funnel with a piece of hosing...

    Pennzoil synchromesh. 2.5 qts. This is easier than an oil change and will take less than 10 minutes. No suicide required ;)

    Q: where do you refill ?

    91 civic hb d15b2 ,factory as of now , question is though , when i am under the car i see one screw with a square for my ratchet , obviously to drain the oil .. then a lil ways up is a bolt , is that truly the refill spot ? not sure so i haven't attempted this yet ...

    any help would be awesome ,

    thanx

    Yes the higher one is the refill point. I would suggest finding a way to keep your car level when filling or close to level. Just like they have said, it should take 3.5q. You can use 5w-30 no problem or go with the honda 'genuine' transsmission oil.
