Honda Fit

My 2009 Honda Fit has 15000 miles. I wanted to check the spark plugs. Where are they? How do you get to them? Am I apt to break something expensive?



I wanted to check the manual transmission oil level. After loosening the left fender liner I found two plugs which could be for checking level. One had a recessed square hole that I could put a 1/2" ratchet in. The other had a hex head. Both were so tight I couldn’t loosen them. Doesn’t anyone check tranny oil level any more?

No help from your owner’s manual on the tranny fluid? I wouldn’t worry about the spark plugs until about 50k (earlier if that’s what the manual says).
