Default CORRECT AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID

There have been posts advising/warning against using AMZOIL, however
this post is about the Owner's Manual specification for the 1995 Civic
EX that reads:

"Honda Premium Formula Automatic Transmission Fluid or an equivalent
DEXRON II type Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF)"

Foget anything about AMZOIL, because there is no way in hell I would
ever use any AMZOIL product, even if they were free.

We are talking about conventional fluid.

==================

Doesn't it say 'for temporary usage' in the actual body of the manual?
It sure does in my '97 CR-V manual.

that's because it's old and was printed when dexron II was still
available. it's not any more. dexron III, what you get now, will make
your transmission shift like you've just been kicked in the nads. trust
the word of those who have been there before you - you need to use the
genuine honda transmission fluid.
