Hi kissblissbaby! For the vast majority of driving with your automatic transmission you should use D4. You should also at least buy a copy of the owners manual for a 1990 Accord to answer similar questions (your local Honda dealer can get it) or buy a service/repair manual such as this one : http://auctions.yahoo.com/i:1990-1993%20Honda%20Accord%20Shop%20Manual%20on%20CD:221045770 Good luck with your new car!
