honda and acura fluids...

are the same, right?
Specifically coolant. I noticed this morning that I am low on coolant and want to top it off.
There is an Acura dealership right by my office.
Pretty sure they are so maybe a stupid question, just want to make sure.
Thanks

Re: honda and acura fluids...

One in the same. In the future, might check out Curry Acura parts, online. They have great discounts on fluids and free shipping.

Re: honda and acura fluids...

I tried vtm-4 fluid but it doesn't generate any hits. I don't know the p/n either.

Wish it was more user-friendly. But many of the other sites aren't much better.

I'm not sure I've ever found the parts site for H&A. Well, I think I found it, but you can't browse for parts on it.

Re: honda and acura fluids...

We should really have a sticky of OEM fluids/filters etc for easy access for the board.

Good idea! I just verified the 5 parts I posted above, they are all valid, and great prices on the Speedlever's 'trademotion' website.

Re: honda and acura fluids...

Is the DW-1 for the Transmission and the VTM-4 for the Diff? Just want to make sure I get that correct.
