Acura 3.2 TL: A few days after ATF-Z1 was added to my car the

This answer was rated:

A few days after ATF-Z1 was added to my car the transmission went out. When the transmission was replaced the tech stated that the "transmission fluid had bad odor" and a different fluid was used. The new fluid description said CP/TRANS FLUID, code #0820-9001AX, it cost $25 less than the ATF-Z1 even though the quantity was more, 6 units versus 4 of the ATF-21. Could the ATF-Z1 have caused my transmission to fail?

Hello and welcome to justanswer.com, the answer to your question is no, Z1 fluid would have not caused your transmission fluid. any other non Honda fluid could have caused this though.
