When I replaced my clutch I used Motul Multi ATF 'I think' as recomended from you. When I replaced the oil I noticed that it was much thiner then the oil that was already in the gear box. The gears feel very different now and the gears feel lighter.

 

The oil may feel thinner because it is fresh/unused oil. Your gears would feel a good bit better after getting rid of old gungy oil :)

Hey,

Im look at changing various oils, i have some Silkoline Pros 5W 40 that had for my DC5, form what i gather this will be ok for the engine? and for the gearbox Motul Multi ATF (http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-906-motul-multi-atf-fluid-for-automatic-transmissions.aspx) The only one im a bit unsure of is the rear diff oil.. i have a 1996 TT Manual

 

Cheers

Hi

 

Pro S 5w-40 is ideal for the engine, the Motul Multi ATF is a good choice if it's go the 6 speed box. The diff needs a 75w-90, something like the Redline 75w-90 GL5, Fuchs Syn 5, Motul Gear 300 and Millers CFS NT would be ideal.

Cheers, and yup its the 6 speed box.

Just been looking at all the different types and adviseries on the section, i may sound like a noob here but how come on a 6 speed manual it uses automatic transmition fluid? and on the power steering sectio also came up with types for automatics??

Hi

 

Thanks for the order.

 

ATFs are thin gear oils, used in a lot of manual gearboxes (Getrag 6 speed in Supras, Skylines etc, BMWs, Fords, and others that I can't remember right now). In most cars, an ATF is the requirement for power steering.
