It looks like pretty good stuff. 188 VI, GL-5.

You won't know how it affects the synchros until you use it though. Give it a try and report back.

Contact ENEOS and ask them if it contains Friction Modifiers. If it does then don't use it.

Just got off the phone with Nippon and he said since i have a slip differential on my car. It is high recommended that i use something else. Not good gear oil for Subaru. Got to love his honesty. Well still more searching, reading and learning on my part. I think ill go with Redline since Maintenance FAQ recommended it or extra-S.

d000000000000000000000d.......your 'slip differential' is a viscous SEALED unit and it wont matter if it does NOT have the lsd additives

I have used Eneos 75W90 Gl 5

it was good for first 3k miles. then step by step it became junk! after 4th gear sincro started to give up (it had zero abuse on tranny).
I'll never go back to eneos. but that's my opinion.

but it is very popular in Japan though

no-no-NO


your synchro did NOT 'give up'!!!!!

the lube was too slick and caused the issue....replacing the lube immediatly is the answer here.....a bit of a grind due to the wrong fluid does NOT MEAN THE SYNCHRO IS BAD!!!!!!!

JESUS CHRIST......people are just DUMB.

YO!
man dude I think its funny that you call people dumb and fill all types of threads up with useless posts. He was just giving his results as was I trying to give info to the OP. Dude u need to get laid and or spend a little less time away from the computer. YO u can go out every once in awhile and get out of your moms basement!!!!

I dont see how you have not been banned. Pull a search of posts on you and you just make fun of everyone and call them dumb. This is not needed.

2nd just because I'm new to this site does not mean I'm new to the car world. You dont even know who I am.

All I'm saying is RELAX its just a forum not the BIBLE.

i dont care who the **** you are

you pop in here and post stupid **** and im gonna tell ya it is

subarus are different and they dont like what other cars like and bako posts the CLASSIC...PERFEFCT....wrong lube in the trans symptoms

this has been documented HERE for 10 years.....i have used at least a dozen lubes in my wrx'S and others cars and found several things that are glaringly apparent

bako's post is classic wrong lube symptoms and HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH A BAD SYNCHRO

AND can easily be fixed by using the RIGHT lube.....and THAT is why I came up with my 'cocktail'

I have researched this AT GREAT LENGTH over the last 10 years and, again, I dont care who you are.
I KNOW what works and what does NOT and there is a LONG thread in the transmission forum that has a LOT of the same sort of thing in it

so...YOU popped in here and poke at me and not even say anything???

oh yeah....the lightweight shockproof 'wears out'....the hevyweight does NOT...and it works better, anyway....and the NS isnt suitable for the 5mt and will yeild results that bako had

anyway.....i dont care what you put in the trans.....pour piss in it for all i care...i know what works and what does not....ive wasted thousands of dollars buying and dumping lubes that didnt work

i think we need an ip check in here, too

ooo men, what is going on here

yes, I did oil swap with motul 300V 75W90 as soon as I got those syncro grinding noise when using eneos. but oil didn't help any more. it was mechanical issue already...
when I disassembled the gears an took syncro uot, it was worn. but I want to say again: before oils wap there waere no issues with my syncro. during the period, when eneos was in the tranny, I did not abuse the car at all, just city/highway driving.

now make your desicions
