    Sorry forgot to add please depose of the old oil to your closest council refuse tip. Please don't throw it down the drain on into ground. It illegal and dangerous of the environment.

    No problem buddy. I plan to change the oil on mine every 12500 miles to keep it sweet.

    I am settling for 5k miles engine oil changes too.

    Can anybody help?? I have an 8th Generation accord (December 2009) and I went to change the gearbox oil and I couldn't find the drain/filler plugs as per the thread above, the garage owner couldn't find them either, there looks to be a plug at the front of the gearbox at the bottom, it has a square drive so this may be the drain but I wasn't going to risk draining the oil, are there other types of gearbox out there?

    Hi,
    I suppose the drain plug is easy to find at the bottom? It points out horizontally and indeed it's the one with the square drive.
    Above, you will see the fluid inspection bolt (6mm).
    The filling plug is located underneath the air filter housing (to be removed), also with the square drive.
