■Automatic Transmission Fluid

Specified fluid: Acura ATF DW-1 (automatic transmission fluid)

Have a dealer check the fluid level and replace if necessary.

Do not attempt to check or change the automatic transmission fluid yourself. The location of the ATF dipstick and fill increases the likelihood that you could be burned when trying to check or change the ATF.


Do not mix Acura ATF DW-1 with other transmission fluids. Using a transmission fluid other than Acura ATF DW-1 may adversely affect the operation and durability of your vehicle’s transmission, and damage the transmission.

Any damage caused by using a transmission fluid that is not equivalent to Acura ATF DW-1 is not covered by Acura’s new vehicle warranty.
