Default need to flush 04 6mt what oil to use?

I need to flush the 6mt out - what cheap fluid can I use to pick up the crap, drive around for a mile or two, drain, refill and repeat?


Will end up using motul 300 after Im done flushing...

Flushing is not necessary with a transmission, they are DESIGNED with drain and fill in mind. If you are so concerned then you'd flush with 300 to make sure you get as much of a 300 load as you can.

No - it needs to be flushed - a bearing ate away some aluminum... I can replace the bearing, but the tranny needs to be flushed and I want to use some "cheaper" fluid...

If that's the case, get some Coastal 99 cent gear oil.

picked up some coastal, but its more like $3 a quart - still cheap, but I wish it was a dollar - I would have bought twice as much to flush...
