    2.Honda Fluids

    4.Honda brake fluid or liqui moly dot 3 in both cases

    If u have a manual then Honda MTF!..Honda brake fluid is around 970 for 1 litre pack enough for ur car..Bleeding means that each wheel's bleed screw on the brake calipers is opened and old brake fluid is removed and new one added..Ur mechanic will know of it,if hes capable enough!..Just dont let him leave air in the brake system during bleeding

    There are specific checks at certain mileage if it has service history and odometer intact.

    a good oil for honda manual gearbox is delo gold 15w40

    any reliable DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid - like seikens, wagner 21, guard etc. - flushing is not too hard. make sure to do that every year without forgetting.

    Just use Honda original gear oil for gear box and Guard brake fluid for the brakes. I am using Guard brake oil in my civic exi 2006 and it is excellent. Try to change brake oil after every 2 or 3 years. Also change radiator coolant with Guard concentrate coolant or Pyro pre mix coolant after every 2 years. Lastly and most important the power steering oil, it should also be changed after every 2 or 3 years. This will prolong the life of power steering pump as well as power steering assembly or kangi. Use STP power steering oil Rs 550 for one liter bottle.
