I just changed mine to Honda's Z1 ATF. Honda has different specifications for its ATF than other manufacturers. Most other manufacturers use Dexron III type ATF, while Honda and Chrysler use their own formulation.

alrite thanks but could u guys give me more info. on the synthetic kind?? and well there is a problem buying the honda kind b/c then i have to drive about an hour away to get to the honda dealer and buy the atf fluid.
Im using Motul synthetic ATF and my car runs perfectly, you should be changeing your ATF every 30,000, I change my motor oil every 3,000 with Motul Synthetic. its one of the best brands out there
From the Vigor site...
"Second, Acura recommends using genuine "Honda Premium Formula Automatic Transmission Fluid or an equivalent DEXRON® II Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) only." Many club members reported harsh shifting problems that were fixed by changing over to Honda's ATF. Apparently, the difference is significant enough that we recommend using only genuine Honda ATF."
