Use a genuine engine oil or another commercial engine oil of suitable type and 
viscosity (for the ambient temperature) as shown in the image that follows.

Oil is a major contributor to your engine’s performance and longevity. If you drive 
the vehicle with insufficient or deteriorated oil, the engine may fail or be damaged.

*1:Formulated to improve fuel economy.

Oil Check

We recommend that you check the engine oil level every time you refuel.
Park the vehicle on level ground.

Turn off the power system. You can check the oil level without the engine having 
run beforehand. If the engine has been running, wait approximately three minutes 
before you check the oil.

1.

Remove the dipstick (orange).

2.

Wipe the dipstick with a clean cloth or 
paper towel.

3.

Insert the dipstick back all the way into its 
hole.

4.

Remove the dipstick again, and check the 
level. It should be between the upper and 
lower marks. Add oil if necessary.

Oil Check

If the oil level is near or below the lower mark, slowly 
add oil, being careful not to overfill.

Cooling System

This coolant is premixed with 50% antifreeze and 50% water. Do not add any 
straight antifreeze or water.

We recommend you check the engine coolant level every time you refuel. Check the 
reserve tank first. If it is completely empty, also check the coolant level in the 
radiator. Add the engine coolant accordingly.

1. Make sure the engine and radiator are 

cool.

2.

Check the amount of coolant in the reserve 
tank.

u

If the coolant level is below the 

MIN

 

mark, add the specified coolant until it 
reaches the 

MAX

 mark.

3.

Inspect the cooling system for leaks.

Cooling System

NOTICE

Genuine Honda engine coolant is a 50/50 mixture of 
antifreeze and water that can withstand freezing at 
temperatures as low as about -31°F (-35°C). If your 
vehicle is consistently subjected to temperatures 
below this, the concentration of antifreeze in the 
coolant should be increased. Consult a dealer for 
details.

If Honda antifreeze/coolant is not available, you may 
use another major brand of non-silicate coolant as a 
temporary replacement. Check that it is a high quality 
coolant recommended for aluminum engines. 
Continued use of any non-Honda coolant can result 
in corrosion, causing the cooling system to 
malfunction or fail. Have the cooling system flushed 
and refilled with Honda antifreeze/coolant as soon as 
possible.

Do not add rust inhibitors or other additives to your 
vehicle’s cooling system. They may not be compatible 
with the coolant or with the engine components.

WARNING

Removing the radiator cap while the 
engine is hot can cause the coolant to spray 
out, seriously scalding you.

Always let the engine and radiator cool
