I would consult the dealer for the correct oil as European transmissions use different oil to most cars and the incorrect oil damages the transmission.

94 chevy cavalier, Updating my question forgot to mention I tryed using LUCAS TRANSMISSION QUICK FIX but no luck it DIDNT FIX.. could it be somthing else perhaps thsts giving me that problem other then the...

Have you tried replacing the transmission-filter and changing the transmission oil? A tip-before removing the transmission oil pan, place a strong magnet on the bottom.of the pan, run the engine a minute with the transmission in neutral. Now when you remove the pan and drain the oil, any metalic particles will come out with the oil. If there is alot of metal in the oil. You should aleays use this method to change filter and oil on your transmission.

Before you change the oil and filter however, look for any loose or bad electrical connections. Also check the linkages to the transmission. Make sure they are good.

As for those products like you mentioned, I would not recomend them....especially in the newer computerized transmissions.

What is the proper kind of transmission fluid for a transmission change?

Mitsubishi would love for you to use their oil, lololol. In reality, the proper oil is the oil rating needed. I usually use a good name brand oil and be sure it is that SPIII ATF I guess. I use Hypoid GL4 manual transmission oil which also can go into the rearend too if needed. If replacing the trany oil, be sure to dump the old oil and clean the magnet located on the drain bolt when you dump it. By the way, I use the oil I mentioned in an 86 Mitsubishi mighty max 5 speed. I use the 80-90wt. Might need to warm it up before pumping it into the tranny. Don't over or under fill the trany too.

Can i use transmission oil on a polo classic 1.8i (1997 - 1999) model gearbox? because i used gear oil and now my gears are even harder to get in.

Is it an automatic transmission or manual. Most new vehicles require low weight oils like 5w20 or less like Automatic Transmission oil, If you added gear oil you might have already damaged the transmission, IF you are able to drain all the fuild out, and replace the Transmission Filter and Gasket you might be able to salvage it.

Not knowning the reason for you adding this oil to the transmission i can not offer any more help.
