Default Mercon 5 = Honda Z1 ATF ?

Hello

I have a 2004 Honda Civic and would like to change the ATF fluid.

The owners manual lists Honda ATF Z1, so I guess I need to go to the dealer?

I was at Walmart today and I saw Mercon V
ATF and on the bottle it mentioned that it meets Honda Z1

Is this ok? Or do I need to use the Honda fluid?


Is there a big deal, I don't want to do anything foolish, however I don't
want to pay extra for Honda ATF unless I have to.

Well, let's see.

Someone wants to sell you something. Not only that, they want to catch
your eye, so they make it so they can sell it with a CHEAP price tag.

At Walmart, no less.

And then they claim it meets Honda's specs.

Hey, Roseanne Barr is a woman. Just like Paris Hilton. Really. I can
get a doctor to certify that.

You can top off you trans fluid with Mercon V, but if you put a guart or
more you need to use Honda ATF.
