i was thinking of changing it to MTL-P. do i just order one bottle (1 gallon)?
Using straight MT-90 is not going to hurt your transmission. If it's not grinding, leave it be.

hey everyone,
Still got a question, i have a 2000 sentra (b15) SE with the SR20DE, and a manual 5 spd, ive got some synchro crunching, and my mechanic suggested i change my gear oil, i found the drain plug fine, but im still not sure where the fill plug is?

Ive been looking for it for a bit, and i want to be sure that i have the right hole, im not newb enough to put gear oil in my engine or radiator but i want to make sure im putting it into the right hole.

anybody have a picture by any chance? maybe that they could photoedit and circle the correct hole?

my haynes manual said that it could be filled by pouring it in where the Vehicle speed sensor attaches to the tranny? anybody know where this is?

My previous automechanic experiance with my old subaru legacy, had me successfuly replacing the timing belt, and drive/flex plate(by removing auto trans). I might have to kick my own *** if i fscked up something as trivial as gear lube change.

thanks for any help, i appreciate it

I just put Redline in yesterday. I made a big difference as I no longer get grinding when I beat on it. I have an 03 and it used 10mm hex on both the drain and fill. I just used some tubing and a funnel. It took about 2 1/2 bottles to refill for me.

I put Redline in not too long ago, and sure, it stopped with the light grinding for the first few days. After that, it's back to usual. Very notchy and etc. Don't expect the good times to last.

Crashed, abused, loved. Damn thing just won't give up.
