Can I switch it back or do I stick with motor oil?

Personally, I'd switch back if indeed the manufacturer calls for ATF. I don't see any harm with the engine oil now other than it's not the recommended fluid.

I worked at a Honda dealership in the mid 90s. An older car came in on trade that smoked like a chimney, service ship drained the oil, added 90 wt gear oil and sent it off to auction. Little to no smoke while running.

That is why buying at the auction got such a bad name.

Attached is the Service Advisory ref the change to 15W40 motor oil...not sure the fluid type really answers your vibration issue at low speeds.

If you've got 15w-40 in there, that's what I'd refill with after a drain. If you've got ATF and you don't have a rattle problem, that's what I'd refill with. If you've got ATF and a rattle at idle/low speeds that you'd like to get rid of, I'd refill with 15w-40.

Thanks! I see it says V-Drive or In-line so that makes sense why it was changed. I'm not sure it will cure the vibration either but I think changing it is a good place to start, work my way through the more simple things that I am comfortable doing myself first and go from there.
