Lubricants and Fluids



Used engine oil may cause skin cancer if repeatedly left in contact with the skin for prolonged periods.
Although this is unlikely unless you handle used oil on a daily basis, it is still advisable to thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water as soon as possible after handling used oil.


For the details of lubrication points and type of lubricants to be applied, refer to the illustrated index and various work procedures (such as Assembly/Reassembly, Replacement, Overhaul, Installation, etc.) contained in each section.

NO. Lubrication Points Lubricant 
Engine Always use fuel-efficient is that says ‘‘API service SG, SH or SJ'' 
Manual Transmission Genuine Honda Manual Transmission Fluid (MTF).
Always use genuine Honda MTF-II. Using motor oil can cause stiffer shifting because it does contain the proper additives. 
CVT Genuine Honda CVT transmission Fluid (ATF).
Always use genuine Honda ATF-Z1. Using a non-Honda ATF can affect shift quality. 
Brake system (includes ABS line) Brake fluid DOT 3 or DOT 4
We recommend genuine Honda Brake Fluid. Using a non-Honda brake fluid can cause corrosion and decrease the life of the system.
