    Default Transmission fluid?

    Hey,

    I was wondering what transmission fluid you guys use in your manual gearboxes? I'm using the 5spd from an ADM 5SFE powered 6th gen. I'm using auto trans fluid with an additive atm (as that's what is used in the gen 1 box), but its too thin and is making the transmission whine. An expert recommended I try engine oil, if it still makes the noise then step up to gear oil... I'm not keen on putting engine oil in my transmission though.

    BTW: I know its the wrong gearbox to use behind a 3SGE, but I couldn't afford the LSD box and figured there's no point spending more for the non-LSD 3SGE box if I'd be selling it in about 6 months anyway.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I use Pennzoil Syncromesh (sp?) in my 93 MR2T tranny and have been pleased with the improvement over Redline 75w90.

    Thanks guys, I'll try finding Pennzoil Synchromesh or atleast 75W90 rated oil tomorrow. We should be able to get it down here in Australia.

    Much appreciated!
