Manual transmission fluid flush

Hey how in the world do you get the trans fluid into the fill hole on the transmission? It's on the side!


Does the bottle top fit into the hole, or do I need some kind of special funnel?

I use a funnel with a tube maybe 12" long and fill it from the top. When the fluid strats to leak out, it's full. Some people do it from the top of the tranny by removing the VSS, but I wouldn't want to damage the sensor accidentally and I've read that you can overfill the tranny by the VSS method.

I do mine once a year just because I know how to. Check your owners manual. My Civic is getting older, so I'm trying to get into the habit of changing ALL the fluids on a more regular basis.

I don't see why not, seeing as the 2000 SIR is pretty much the same engine.
