I got mine from Summit. It took 3 days to get it and it arrived on a Saturday. It's only $7.95 a qt. (Although there's a hazardous materials shipping charge)

Default 158,000 miles on an outback too high for a cocktail?

I was just about to change the tranny oil on my 98 outback, and the guy at Napa had recommended that I use 75w-90 so I bought three quarts of valvoline, but after reading this post I am thinking this is probably the wrong oil to be using to replace the oil in the tranny. I am running 158,000 miles now and I bought the car at 100,000 miles, and haven't changed the transmission oil at all yet. Reading through the cocktails sounds very hopeful and something I am interested in doing but I was just wondering if I have too high of mileage, I also want my tranny to last as long as possible because I plan on keeping this car forever because I really love it. Any help you could give me on this would be wonderful, thank you so much.

I have a question about the mix

I've changed my fluid to this and I must say I really liked it! 5th gear doesn't grind as bad anymore, shifts nice

but now I have this

would there be any possibility that the mix has some effect on JDM spec diffs?

Uncle Scotty, any ideas or input for my problem?

While I'm debating trying this cocktail after reading up, I'm getting lots of opinions from other places.

I'm thinking about just manning up and doing the Motul FF.

Roya Purple has been posted by MANY, here, to cause total grief with subaru MT's.

someone even posted that RP has a 'NOTE' or 'WARNING' about not using their product in subru MT's specifically.....dunno if that is true or not.

....dunno about using the 'cocktail' in a 6MT

I just did the cocktail tango tonight and ALL whirring gear noises are gone...yup all! I do have a clanking on decel between 2-1k rpms but usual gear noise is now silent. Oh, but I decided to use the heavyweight shockproof.

I was using Mobil 1 75-90 before and now with the cocktail, and driving a while to warm it all up, it shifts the same as with the Mobil 1, nice and easy as before but now silent.

About draining and not being able to find the Castrol, the most important ingredient is the shockproof and syncromesh. I to couldn't find the Castrol but heard great things about Lucas 80-90 so that's what I used.

I read all through this thread and nowhere does anyone say in what order to add everything. What does everyone suggest to add first or what should you add most of since you arent supposed to put the full 4 quarts in. I'm probably just blind and missed it....if this is the case...just kick me

thanks

Actually, the last pep boys I was at (chicagoland area) carried all sizes of the torx bit, including the T70. I would call the one in your local area first to see if they have it in stock.

Default Pouring Order

From what I gathered ...

Here is the Official Cocktail Pouring Order

1. 1qt. Lightweight Shockproof

2. 1qt. Pennzoil Schromesh

3. Finish with the remaining Castrol Hypoy C but only fill to the Full line on the dipstick. Do not dump in both remaining quarts. I believe total volume for the tranny is 3.4 - 3.6.

Hope that answered some questions.
