Most people around here say to use Honda ATF from the dealer.

Your 1999 is in the 98-02 range of years with fragile auto-trannys, so keep the fluid clean. I'd change it more often than the owner's manual says - seems to me the book says something stupid long like 80k miles.

So I just picked up my car 99 G20t from the shop today. Clutch was replaced. But now the clutch is very easy to push down, I am wondering if this is just something that needs adjustment, or if i should be worried? BTW- I have a hydraulic clutch.

You realize this is a Honda forum, not an Infiniti forum, right? The replacement pressure plate is probably weaker than the previous one, so it's easier to push down.

Well good luck with that. How do you think one fluid matches the friction modifiers of Honda, Nissan, Toyota, BMW, Mitsubishi, Hyundai and Volvo? It doesn't. Hondas are VERY picky about the transmission fluid they use.
