for 96-00 civic automatics, which line is the outlet and inlet?

Service manual does not indicate this, and online info is mixed.

Some partsstores are calling the upper/center pipe the inlet (fluid INTO tranny)

Some partsstores are calling the lower/rear pipe the inlet.

here is a picture from a dealership online. They simply mark the pipes A and B

Reason?

Installing a directional fluid filter (usually used for powersteering on toyotas, but they use ATF on older models for power steering)


What do I think? center/upper pipe is fluid going INTO tranny. Seems to make sense to let gravity assist. and it directly cools/supplies main and counter shafts and gear clutches


Help?

I have found part of the reason I am confused by online info, is some are describing the CVT cooler lines, which are of course different than the automatic lines. Not all were properly descriptive of which tranny was used.
