Default GSR Transmission Fluid

What do you use for your transmission, weight? brand? synthetic or non ?

I heard that you can just use regular motor oil for it, something like 10w30. but i dont want to screw up my car, and I want to put the best products in my car. I had found this post http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=987188 but i wasn't sure if this was the same with a GSR.

NOOOOO! NOT 10W30.....you need a MTF....Manual Transmission Fluid...go to Honda and pick up 3 quarts, should be enough, or if you want to splurge get into some Redline, makes shiftin notchier, and its synthetic

I use a combonation of MTF, Lucas, and mobile one synthetic oil... the 3rd gear syncro was going out and I put that combo in and it is shifting better than the day i got it. 1qt MTF 1\2qt Lucas 1\2qt synthetic. Mix the lucas and the oil togeather so it is easy to pour in. Good luck

actually, you CAN use 10w30 motor oil, thats what is recommended if you look in a fluid guide book if you cant get ahold of Honda MTF.......my 1st choice is Honda MTF, but yes, you can use 10w30 motor oil! also, GM Synchromesh is popular as said earlier.

Exactly. Unless you have grinds, then you can try the GM syncromesh to buy some time.

GM Synchromesh fluid is a synthetic blend, not full synthetic.

The stuff sold by Pennzoil is NOT the same as the friction modified GM Synchromesh. It's the same as the regular GM Synchromesh fluid.

hell yeah, just one freaking 10 mm bolt... you don't even have the remove the sensor from the harness, just set it aside. then get yourself a long neck funnel or funnel w/tube and fill until it drains out the fill plug, then voila, you're done.

btw, gm friction modified is the shizznit... but i also used regular gm synchromesh and it worked fine, as well... then again, i didn't have any grinds to begin with.

also, i was using 10-30 for 4 years straight, changed every 6 months... never had a problem, and shifted @ 8500 rpms.
