Someone put Dexron 2 automatic transmission fluid in the manual transmission of my 1992 geo metro. If I put the GL-5 75w in there, will it cause a problem?

I do not think it will. Besides, you have no other choice. The longer you keep running it with the a/t fluid, the worse it will be.
I ran my car without fluid in the differential and I really had to pay the consequences.
My A/T differential calls for A/T fluid, but I used manual trans. fluid for a while(15W90). That was 2 years ago, and the car still runs fine. Now i put the A/T reccomended fluid.
As long as you have some type of lubricant where metal grinds metal, ir is way better than nothing.
Note. what I mean is that you should use the reccomended fluid, but if you used another lubricant, it is not the end of the world.
hope this helps

I would first drain the transmission fluid out completely first. Then go ahead and add the correct fluid ( the GL-5 75w) sounds like the correct fluid you should use.

I have a 1992 BMW 525 I manual transmission what kind of fluid do I put in the ATF oil only reservoir?


You should be able to use most Automatic Transmission Fluids (ATF), although if you have a manual shift car, then there is no ATF.
Check the fluid level careful if you do have an ATF container, since it is very rare that you would lose fluid from the transmission.

Hello bruanaustint: My name is Roger and I will help with your question. The oil will depend wether you have a automatic or standard transmission. If you have an automatic use Dexron 2E or dexron 3 fliud. If you have a standard transmission with a two or four wheel drive use a GL-4, 75w90 weight synthetic gear oil.
Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using FIx Ya. Roger

The check balls I put back in were slightly larger. You should be able to get them from any transmission shop or the Chevy dealer. I got my gasket from the Chevy dealer.
