What year is the 90 I have a 97 and it only takes engine oil in it. Just check the dipstick and feel tile its to the full mark. Screw the dip stick in a few turns and check. Use Honda oil Welcome to the forums.

oil change

You have removed the cam chain tensoner.Just put it back together and snug it up.Now,on the very bottom of the motor there is a drain plug.Ithink the origional is a 14 or15mm.Put a pan under it and unscrew the plug.Get your oil from the Honda shop.The same engine case holds the engine oil pump and trans.gears.You wont use the whole quart,just 23ounces(.7of a quart).You should be good to go.But to be sure check the level with the dip stick.

i was thinking the same thing ^^^^^^ when i first started reading this from the first post..because i know for a fact..the older models have a bolt..just about the same size as the oil drain bolt..and i can't tell you how many ppl have un-screwed the cam chain tensoner by mistake..thinking it was the oil drain bolt !
