You have to use HCF-2 on 9th gen Accord CVT and cannot use just any Honda CVT fluid.
Welcome to Drive Accord and don't be discouraged by the blunt comments.What is the recommended mileage to replace the automatic transmission fluid in a 2013 accord. Thanks for the help
on2, I RTFM and my manual says "Honda ATF DW-1 (automatic transmission fluid)" on page 352. It also says the transmission should be drained and refilled with new fluid according to the Maintenance Minder (see page 335), however page 335 contains no info on atf only engine oil which is why I made the post hoping to get some info based on members experience.
Furthermore on2 when you assume something usually results in ' u making an a$$ out of me ', thanks for your help.
Yep, sloppy language on many topics in their literature.Honda blew it when they interchangeably call their transmission a "CVT" and an "Automatic"- often on the same website, repair manual, and owner's manual. What will happen when the car is out of warranty and a non-Honda mechanic or owner puts in DW-1?
