I have a secon generation Honda FIT 2009 model. Which fluid should i use for my transmission CVT or ATF?
My car has an automatic transmission.
You should use Honda ATF-Z1 fluid. This is supposed to be the correct fluid for all vehicles 2010 and older.

Always use Honda ATF-Z1 (automatic transmission fluid). If it`s not available, you may use a DEXRON III automatic transmission fluid as a temporary replacement. However, continued use can affect the shift quality.
Recommended for service-fill in all Honda and Acura automatic transmissions where ATF Z-1 is specified.

Automatic Transmission:1.40 US gal (5.3 L )
Genuine Honda Fluid 08200-9006 CVT-1 Continuously Variable Transmission Fluid – 1 Quart.
Phillips 66® CVT Fluid is a premium-quality, full-synthetic transmission fluid specifically designed for use in passenger cars with belt-driven continuously variable transmissions. It has been specifically engineered to have the unique frictional properties required for use in this type transmission.
Commonly recommended manual transmission fluid formulations include SAE 80W, 75W-90, 80W-90 and SAE 90. In some cases, a multi-grade engine oil or automatic transmission fluid may be recommended. However, a manual transmission fluid is typically the most optimal for manual transmissions.
The best place to start is by consulting the owner`s manual. It will note whether the car requires Dextron or Mercon transmission fluid. It`s very important to follow the owner`s manual. For example, some imports won`t accept Mercon, and instead require brand-specific fluid.
Capacity: 3.8 quarts (with filter). After refill check oil level.
Honda Fit transmission fluid changes are tremendously vital to keep your vehicle`s transmission cheerful and lubricated. If you don`t routinely change your fluids at least every 30,000 miles or so, you may find that your Honda Fit transmission will slip.
A typical fluid change can require anywhere from 2.5 to 5.5 litres (3 to 6 US quarts) of automatic transmission fluid, depending on the make and model of the vehicle. Some may require far more.
Notes: Automatic Transmission. 1 quart. It is recommended to check your vehicle owners manual to be sure Valvoline import multi-vehicle synthetic ATF is right for your vehicle.
The only things that`s make the different for CVT fluid is that the fluid has to produce more fiction rather than less fiction. It is because it`d running on pulley system running by belts, it has to be lubricant cation with more fiction to keep the belt from slipping on the pulley system.
There are different types of hydraulic oil lubricants, such as CVT fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, etc. Engine oil on the other hand is designed to efficiently deal with the combustion of the engine, whereas Transmission fluid plays hydraulic properties and does not see contaminants from fuel burning.
You can easily determine whether your vehicle is equipped with a CVT transmission or another automatic transmission. If, under acceleration, the engine RPMs do not change over a wide speed range, but the car still gets faster, then your car probably has a CVT transmission.

Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is used in all cars that have automatic transmissions and in certain modern manual transmission cars. Manual transmission oil is the fluid used in some manual cars; it is never used in automatic transmission vehicles. In some cases gear oil is used within manual transmissions.
Yes, ATF+4® is the correct fluid to use for your transmission and power steering. If an automatic transmission fluid (ATF) isn`t on the ATF+4® approved list but the bottle says it is “ATF+4”, or suitable for FCA or Chrysler vehicles, or suitable where ATF+4® is required, should I use it anyway?
Automatic transmissions must only use the fluid specified by the automaker, such as General Motors` Dexron series or Toyota`s Type T. Using the wrong fluid can cause poor lubrication, overheating, and possibly transmission failure. A mechanic might not be able to reverse the damage, even by flushing the transmission.
The short answer is, no you cannot.
CVT Fluid comes in red, Color does not indicate quality or product applications. Note: Please consult your vehicle owners` manual for proper transmission luid requirements. CVT Fluid is a functional part of the Continuously Variable Transmission.
