Trans fluid for 5 speed transmission, manual specs out 20w/50 motor oil?
Also , specs 80 weight. What are others using?
Little more info on what I am using. Pentosin mtf2 Sae 75w-80 apl gl-4
Trans oil, this fluid is made in Germany for european cars with zf or getrag manual trans from 1997 on. My main problem i get speratic difficult shifting it comes and goes, especially during cold weather. I thought it could be the trans fluid, I sprayed the linkage with lithium grease. But I thinking it could be the shift linkage felt pad at the end of the linkage arm has collapsed and it’s not pushing on the trans shift link.
Any thoughts welcomed.
