Since not everyone has the maintenance book, what kind of oil/fluids do you use on different places?

FILL IN and tell us why:

ENGINE OIL:

TRANS AUT/MAN:

REAR DIFF:

COOLANT:

BRAKE FLUID:

POWER STEER:

Thanks!

For all fluids, I use what Honda recommends in my owners manual.

Why? Because I figure Honda knows best
