Default Honda Trans Fluid

Has anyone had any issues with the new replacement fluid in their old transmission instead of using the ATF Z1? I have a 2004 Vue 3.5L and have changed out with the old fluid. I am ready to change out again and it appears I can't find the old Z1 anymore. Hope the new stuff is exactly the same.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I've mixed Z1 and DW1 in four different 3.5 Vue's - ranging from 58K miles to 120K miles on odometer - with no differences notes.

I try to visit forum often but suggest you use private messages if in a rush (comes to cell) and include email address for extracts. I seldom check visitor messages so please don't use.

Have you considered Redline D4 ATF? That is what I use in my 06 Vue Redline with 130,000 miles on the OD. Redline is a full synthetic that meets AND EXCEEDS the Z1 spec.

I have not considered that stuff. I found the regular on ebay and bought from there again. Looks like weather is gonna be decent enough to change out now.
