Re: gear oil

If you have no grinds or slipping with your tranny, use MTF, go to a local honda dealer for it.

If you are having wear issues, switch over to GM Syncromesh manual trans fluid WITH FRICTION MODIFIED. You need to go to a GM dealer for it. And dont let them tell you there's only one kind, and friction modified doesn't exist. It has to say it on the bottle. Call ahead of time to make sure they have it. One dealership told me they dont make it, while another had tons in stock.

Re: gear oil

As for any other fluid's, honda is iffy. They like to use their specific fluids. I know for a fact if you dont use the right power steering fluid it will eat the seals and you'll need to replace the steer rack. There are seals in the tranny, so I wouldnt test using anything that I didnt mention above.

GM is proven to work, people have used it for years.

Re: gear oil

Why not use engine oil since that is what Honda recommends in there manuals.
My Honda service manual says 10W - 30 or 10W - 40, for the manual trans, direct from page 4-2.

That's what I just replaced my old fluid with and no problems at all.

True, but our cars do not. 10w30, 10w40, Honda MTF, GM Syncromesh #12377916 are all acceptable fluids
