[DML] Re: Manual tranny leaking at drain plug

It has been my experience that using synthetic gear oil will cause any
leaks you have to become much worse.  I, too had the leaky tranny
problem and switched to synthetic.  Over the past few months, I
started to notice that there was a growing puddle under my car.  Once
I saw that, I had to switch back to the old stuff.

VIN 4205
