SOLVED--DPSF DPSF-II Are They Different?

817 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  npolite
Hi All,

I am about to change the differential fluid in a 2023 MDX AWD-Advanced and the manual calls for DPSF-II fluid. Went to the Acura dealership today and the bottle says DPSF. When I asked him about the -II he said they all use this fluid. Is this correct? I was not able to find any bottles online with the -II so assume that it is correct but of course want to verify with the forum.

Just like the old threads already covered ….
It’s the same base part number. They are the same. If it was totally different , it would be a completely different part number .
not only that, if I asked Acura to change my fluid and they tell me they have none and it’s back ordered for 6-months to a year under the Acura brand, how do you suppose they will change everyone’s fluid?
They will pick up some Honda branded fluid and call me when it’s done.
The A or any number thereafter could be distinguishing revision or even supplier or the sticker label. It also allows them to charge a premium under a slightly different part number.

I wouldn’t even worry about it. Do you see any threads from anyone “oMG my diff blew up with Honda branded DPSF-II”
