Question about Car Audio & Video
Manual Transmission Lubricant
Manny manual transmissions use gear oil viscosity of about SAE 80W or 90
grade. This is a gear oil viscosity and has nothing to do with motor oil
viscosity. For instance, SAE 80W gear oil can have the same viscosity
characteristics as SAE 40 or 50 motor oil.
However, not all-manual transmissions use gear oil. For years, Chrysler
Corporation specified the use of automatic transmission fluid in their manual
transmission vehicles. Some transaxles, both foreign and domestic, use either
ATF or engine oil to lubricate the transmission. For this reason, it is always
best to consult your owner's manual or your dealer if you are unsure about what
sort of lubricant to use in your manual transmission.
