Is Honda ATF, synthetic?

EDIT: I SEARCHED FOR HOW MANY QUARTS TO ADD WHEN CHANGING... SOMEONE SAID ADD 3 THEN CHECK THE LEVEL... I ADDED 3 AND IT WAS WAY OVER THE LINE.

so does anyone know how many quarts of atf to add when changing? is it just 2? or 2 1/2? 3 is definitely to much

I've heard bad things about using non-honda atf in the d17 auto trannies.

and no, I don't think it's synthetic

L23Tan is an unknown quantity at this point
Since you're using the ATF-Z1... you must use 2.5 Litres. I myself put 2.6 Litres. Just drain it like oil, then get a funnel and stick where the dipstick goes and drop in 2.5 - 2.6 LITERS.

I don't have the bottle infront of me, but to save you the confusion, put 2.5 - 2.6 bottles.

As for being synthetic, I'm not sure... but it doesn't matter, you should only use the Honda ATF-Z1 anyway.

the auto tranny takes 2.9 quarts on a drain and fill. I just add all 3 quarts in and it is a small amount above the line which is no cause for concern.
