prelude sh manual 5 speed

Im changing out the axles on my 98sh i drained the fluid and it looks really broken down. People have told me to use 10w-30 oil for the fluid instead of the specific honda manual trans fluid. Is the 10-30 oil as good as or should i just pick up the fluid from honda directly since i cant seem to find the honda fluid at any generic parts stores

I've heard that too and it says that in the manual if you can't get honda stuff, I got honda stuff because I couldn't find the viscosity anywhere.

Honda container had 75-80w on it from memory and it shifts alot smoother! never usually buy manufacturer oils but was happy with it and it's not too much expensive than other brands either.

You can only get Honda MTF at the dealership or online, as far as I know. That's the only thing I run in my transmission.

Stick to Honda MTF. Can't beat it even though its a little pricey but you only have to change it every couple years
