Just rolled over the 100,000 mile interval on Acura in signature. Would like recommendations on what fluid to use for changing out my differential fluids for front & rear.

I thought Acura introduced SH-AWD on the 09 TL?

thorromig, you wont find a aftermarket fluid recommend for an Acura/Honda differential. just go to dealer and pickup its not very expensive. i paid less than $10 a quart for mine.

I concur.

Had the same problem with nissan cvt oil
However what you might be able to do, is save a few bucks ordering through ebay.

EX
cvt nissan oil at dealer 12$/quart ; ebay like $7/quart

yep. you must use the acura fluid. the rear gear unit is NOT a differential. It is a spool with 2 electric clutches. It needs the right fluid.

There's an Acura AWD fluid. Be sure to replace it more often than every 100k - typical change intervals are in the 30-45k range as dictated by the Maintenance Minder system.

I believe the first is listed at 50k and then every 30k from there.
