Wrong stuff, flush the fluid now, or perform 4-5 drain and fills to get it all out and only use add OEM Acura or Honda ATF DW-1 automatic transmission fluid.

Well sht. Okay. Lol i need to get a better funnel then. Thank you for the advice.

Its getting horrible. Reving up high rpm and then slaming in gear.
