few options...10w30 as stated in the owners manual (cheap route)...go to honda and get 3 quarts of there oem tranny fluid (moderate route)...get tranny fluid from the auto parts store (moderate route)....or go to a gm dealership and get some syncromesh tranny fluid (expensive route, but the best for smooth engagment)...

You can use engine oil but dont, use genuine honda MTF fluid, trust me on this, it is cheap and the best route to take.

whoaa whoaaa first and foremost.. if its auto.. you NEVER use motor oil in hondas or acuras. you could either get honda ATF or use any tranny fluid labeled "dexron/mercon" nothing else for auto trannies. motor oil is ok to use in manual transmissions, but honda MTF is preferred.
