[DML] Re: gearbox Lube (was movement)



Just a data point - if you have a slightly leaky transmission, it 
will be a bit more leaky with the Valvoline Synth, and even MORE 
leaky with the RedLine 75W90NS. Shifts nice though. 

BTW - Do NOT use Redline MTL in it - this is a differential AND a 
gearbox, and the differential is the tougher application. MTL is not 
thick enough for the differential. 

Also do not use RedLine 75W90(without the NS). Redline's naming 
convention is backwards, NS = "Not for Non-Slip" i.e. it is for open 
difs like we have. If you use the straight 75W90 it contains the 
NonSlip additives which supposedly will make the gear syncros perform 
strangely.

If you want further confirmation on this, call RedLine's engineering 
department and they will make the same recommendation.

sythentic oil for the manual tranny as it seems to help smooth 
shifting (especially into second gear) on those cold mornings.
