*4: Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds results in higher transmission temperature.

This requires transmission fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the Maintenance
Minder. If you regularly drive your vehicle under these conditions, have the transmission fluid changed
at 40,000 miles (64,000 km), then every 30,000 miles (48,000 km).

Recommended Engine Oil

Oil is a major contributor to your engine’s
performance and longevity. If you drive the
vehicle with insufficient or deteriorated oil,
the engine may fail or be damaged.

This seal indicates the oil is energy conserving
and that it meets the American Petroleum
Institute’s latest requirements.

Use a Genuine Acura Motor Oil or another
commercial engine oil of suitable viscosity for
the ambient temperature as shown.

Synthetic oil

You may also use synthetic motor oil if it is labeled with the API Certification Seal
and is the specified viscosity grade.

Genuine Acura Motor Oil
Premium-grade 0W-20 detergent oil with an API Certification Seal on the

Engine Coolant

Continued

Main

tenan

ce

Engine Coolant

This coolant is premixed with 50% antifreeze and 50% water. Do not add any
straight antifreeze or water.

We recommend you check the engine coolant level every time you refuel. Check the
reserve tank first. If it is completely empty, also check the coolant level in the
radiator. Add the engine coolant accordingly.

1. Make sure the engine and radiator are

cool.

2. Check the amount of coolant in the reserve

tank.

u

If the coolant level is below the MIN
mark, add the specified coolant until it
reaches the MAX mark.

3. Inspect the cooling system for leaks.

Specified coolant: Acura Long Life Antifreeze/Coolant Type 2

Reserve Tank

1

Engine Coolant

NOTICE

Genuine Acura engine coolant is a 50/50 mixture of
antifreeze and water that can withstand freezing at
temperatures as low as about -31°F (-35°C). If your
vehicle is consistently subjected to temperatures
below this, the concentration of antifreeze in the
coolant should be increased. Consult a dealer for
details.

If Acura antifreeze/coolant is not available, you may
use another major brand of non-silicate coolant as a
temporary replacement. Check that it is a high quality
coolant recommended for aluminum engines.
Continued use of any non-Acura coolant can result in
corrosion, causing the cooling system to malfunction
or fail. Have the cooling system flushed and refilled
with Acura antifreeze/coolant as soon as possible.

Do not add rust inhibitors or other additives to your
vehicle’s cooling system. They may not be compatible
with the coolant or with the engine components.

WARNING

Removing the radiator cap while the
engine is hot can cause the coolant to spray
out, seriously scalding you.

Always let the engine and radiator cool
down before removing the radiator cap.

NOTICE

Brake fluid marked DOT 5 is not compatible with your

damage.

If the specified brake fluid is not available, you should
use only DOT 3 or DOT 4 fluid from a sealed
container as a temporary replacement.

Using any non-Acura brake fluid can cause corrosion
and decrease the longevity of the system. Have the
brake system flushed and refilled with Acura Heavy
Duty Brake Fluid DOT 3 as soon as possible.

If the brake fluid level is at or below the MIN mark,
have a dealer inspect the vehicle for leaks or worn
