Re: Fluid in a T5 tranny

i fubar'ed my t5 twice before i learned. i replaced the lube w/ 85-90. the tranny lasted about 11,000 mls. the rebuild shop also used gear oil. this time it lasted 13,000 mls. the second rebuild shop told me to use atf. he said the revolution of the gears is to slow to circulate the thick gear oil to the bearing. sounded like it made sence anyways.
