Manual Tranny Fluid ATF?
 
Does our manual tranny fluid uses ATF fluid Dextron 3 or its somethin else? :confused:

Soldo 11-03-2005 10:38 AM

Should be dexron 3, i just get mine from the dealer!
Just says ATF on it.... that i remember at least!

Just use your favorite ATF. Getrag's arent' finiky.

Axxe 11-03-2005 11:12 AM

For the diff I just used castrol 80W90 and friction modifier. Just over $24 with tax for it all.

Nope, just pour quality conventional ATF. Keep in mind that my Getrag 260 has over half a million kms on it, and it still shifts smooth as butter.
