Used engine oil may cause skin cancer if repeatedly left in contact with skin for prolonged periods. Although this is unlikely unless you handle used oil on a daily basis, it is sill advisable to thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water as soon as possible after handling used oil.
|*1:||Always use genuine Honda Manual Transmission Fluid (MTF). Using motor oil can cause stiffer shifting because it does not contain the proper additives.|
|*2:||We recommend Genuine Honda Brake Fluid. Using a non-Honda brake fluid can cause corrosion and decrease the life of the system.|
