Are you talking about transmission fluid?

IF you're talking about manual-transmission fluid...
Imagine the right-front wheel removed, and you're looking in along the axle.

Drain plug is at 6-oclock and it has a square hole just the right size for a 3/8-socket extension.

Fill plug is at 9-oclock and it's a normal hex bolt, but larger and "looks different" from all the other bolts that hold the transmission case together.

Honda MTF. A bit less than 3 quarts. People have used Pennzoil Synchromesh, or Redline something-or-other, but if the factory stuff has worked well so far, then stick with it.

If you remove the wheel to do this, then lower the jack enough so the car is level. Then pour fluid in through a funnel & hose, until it pours out through the fill hole. You want to go slowly to give it a chance to flow around everything & actually be full at that level.

I said lower the jack, but be careful about supporting the car. I use jack-stands before I reach in or under the car. Once I have everything ready, so I don't have to reach anywhere underneath, THEN I remove the stand & lower the jack to level the car. Don't get your arm crushed underneath...
