Default Andrewtech Cocktail

Hello Everyone,

After reading reviews for a couple of weeks I have decided to go with the Andrewtech cocktail of 3qts Redline Lightweight Shockproof and 1 qt Motul 300. I'm currently at 70K and the tranny fluid has never been changed. Its getting rather difficult to put into reverse and almost impossible to get into first while during a slow roll.

So my questions is : What is the last oil to go in. Should I put the Motul in first or last? The transmission only takes 3.8 qts so one of the fluids has to have a little leftover.

Thanks for the help guys.

Chris

Doesn't really matter.

We typically do shockproof first, then top it off with Motul.

excellent left leg control.


I did the same thing, it held, with 180k on the box.


Just be nice to it. I am running OEM fluid, it is fine

I put in the Andrew Tech cocktail today and . Smooth as butter. I personally think it has to do with the shockproof being a thicker weight fluid.

Straight lightweight shockproof has always been pretty great on its own.

Um... at the local Subaru bar?

You buy 3 quarts of Redline shockproof gear oil, and 1 quart of Motul Gear 300,
Put the Redline in first and then fill the rest of the tranny with the Motul.

Your tranny will do the mixing for you, and if you are nice, might even spit out the olive you so desire????

Google is your friend when it comes to which vendors have the oil....sorry, too lazy to look it up for you bro.

fixed...

i believe its the other way around; 3qts Redline Lightweight Shockproof and 1 qt Motul 300 right?

[quote=Team Scream;31715562]Um... at the local Subaru bar?

You buy 3 quarts of Motul Gear 300, and 1 quart of Redline shockproof gear oil.
Put the Redline in first (the whole quart) and then fill the rest of the tranny with the Motul.

Wrench in the works time.
I have a PPG box in the Baja.
1-4 helicals
340/365 to the wheels.
I had the cocktail in my case & had a 3rd gear synchro grind, OFTEN.
Ryan, from Area1320 in Easton Pa. convinced me to flush it & run straight Amsoil gear oil.
It hasn't crunched since & it really does shift ultra smooth now.
Good luck.

After trying several gear oils I decided to try this mix in an attempt to at least reduce my 4th gear grind and hopefully put off a synchro replacment for a few months. I wasn't sure what to expect, but to my surprise this stuff works great. It's like Liquid Schwartz! No more grind and the tranny shifts very smoothly. If this lasts I'm just going to leave the tranny alone. Thanks Andrewtech.

Im in the process of buying the oils and I see there is a Motul Gear 300 and a Motul Gear 300 LS on fastwrx.com? Is one better than the other? I was also wondering if 4 quarts of the Redline Shockproof LW and 1 quart of the Motul is enough for both the tranny and rear diff. The winters in Chicago and get COLD so I was thinking of making sure I get in just under (save a bloop for the diff) a full quart of the Motul before I top it off with the Redline. Sound good? I just dont want this too be too thick going into winter and was wondering If I should mix a little different. Thanks

Personally I have used Redline Heavyweight shockproof on my 5 speed and it drives smooth as butter. Perhaps I can't always shift as fast but I like it regardless. Anyone have anything against using the heavyweight? It also stopped my 5th gear grind. The oil also breaks down a bit after a while allowing for fast and smooth shifts up until my 5th gear starts grinding all over again.

on a side note, I thought that our tranny's can take 4.75L of oil... or maybe I'm thinking about engine oil.
