Sterling Maintenance - Transmission Fluid
Sterling vehicles were built as a joint venture between Rover and Honda and they are equipped with Honda/Acura transmissions. Therefore, the best transmission fluid to use in your Sterling is Honda transmission fluid. Dexron IID, which is probably less expensive, is also recommended by Sterling. Keep a close eye on the fluid and expansion reservoir to the cooling system. If you see a pink color and foam in the reservoir, that's a sure sign of a leak in the transmission cooler that will eventually lead to the loss of your transmission.
