Redline lightweight shockproof oil or Redline MT90 if you dont drive hard all the time.

Expensive but excellent oil. Will make a difference to how your gearbox feels when changing gears.


this oil is the best on the market for manual gearboxes it really stops the gear grinding when you change gears and being such a thick oil it really protects the gears and prolongs the life of the box.

HI guys

just went to a couple of auto stores peps / repco ect

i went to repco
i asked for lubrizol oil additive for transmissions and he said whats that for
i told the guy that i had a falcon 5 speed and i was going to add the lubrizol to trans fluid and put it in the gear box. he said that you shouldnt use trans fluid in manual boxs . i told him that ford reccomend the use of dexron fluid...
he went out the back and asked about lubrizol no one there had ever heard of it...

I found dexIII and ATF treatment llike wynns will work just as well as anything. Nice smooth changes from stone cold thru hot.

spare parts guys realy have no idea.

half the front drive boxes ever made are meant to have ATF in them.
we only have 2 places here that stock lubrizol . cheaper auto spares and ford. the local ford dealer buys it from cheaper auto spares. work that one out

IIRC I got my Lubrizol (the penrite stuff) from Autopro - there are a few stores in Sydney: http://www.autopro.com.au/autopro/autop ... enDocument .
Ring them first to see if they have it - hopefully they'll be a bit more competent than the twits you mentioned.
