Putting oil into a Honda accord 1986

Sorry, Im a guy who knows absolutly nothing about cars, but alot about computers. I Have an Accord 1986 honda ( LX ) and I need to put oil in it since the oil is low when I checked it, but I have no idea where the cap for putting oil is on this car, and wouldn't know it even if I saw it.

Around the middle of the care their is a black plastic cap labeled "HUILE OIL", that might be the oil cap. I really do not know. Its very hard to untwist. I have no idea what Im doing. If anyone knows were an online owners manual for the 1986 Accord is, that would be great. I have no owners manual in the car.

Any help at all would be appreciated.

Do you see the little black cap by the blue tube in the middle of the picture. (kind of confusing) It looks kind of cog shaped, if you know what that means.

I believe that should be the oil. You can check your car manual if you have it, I'm sure they tell you where.

Correct me if I'm wrong guys, this is the only 86 Accord engine I've seen, but that is where I would think.

That would be right. It could be hard to twist if it hasn't been off in a while. The general place you'll find the oil cap is on the engine, unless the engine is inaccessable for routine maintenence in some way.

Thanks Cliffy. I was 99% sure that was it, but didn't want to be the one to tell him to pour it in the wrong place LOL. That would be horrible!
