So what is the recommended fluid these days? I just read about 40 pages worth of the scotty's cocktail thread, and I can't make heads or tails of it. I've seen in that thread people discussing transfluid, diff fluid, synthetic, non-synthetic, etc etc. Some love one thing, other people say the best is something else, still other people are telling those people they are idiots because their said fluid is going to grenade their tranny.
What fluid should I be using in my higher mileage 02 manual trans? It is already grinding going into 4th. Seems like either my trans is way screwed, or a different fluid might help it not grind so much. Please school me gurus.
