Has anyone used a full synthetic ATF in their 4cylinder 8 speed TLX that is not an acura brand name?

Seems everyone suggests to stick with the Honda Transmission fluid to avoid any potential issues. Not sure if that's true or not but I went with Honda when I changed mine. The oil recommended for the 8 speed isn't that expensive compared to the astronomical price for the 9 speed V6 oil from Honda

Welcome Barry.

Honda states that you need to use Honda ATF because they stick some different fluids in it.

If you decide to go to another brand, don't. Just use the correct ATF designated for the Honda dual clutch transmission.
Fixed it. :)
