5 speed oil

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what kind of oil is recomended for my trans. I know what the owners manual says but what does that translate to at the parts store.

Sorry to say you need the $25 a quart stuff from the dealer. Castrol Syn-Torque... Part stores don't normally carry it.Now as for using something else there is conversy about if it effects the syncro's in the transmission. When in doubt use the proper fluid...:smart:

Redline synthetics has an oil specifically designed for it that is cheaper and redline makes stuff run smoooth. Amsoil was horrible in my 5 speed.
