I have to agree with rh334 on this one. I have witnessed first hand many people having grinding issues while using redline. I would recommend giving amsoil a try before you put it down. Do some research and see for yourself. Also, why would you put down another member who was trying to help you out? I will be changing all of my fluids today using Amsoil, I am not going to put anything else in my transmission because I want to take care of my car properly.

..........jackass?..................

do you call all of your customers that? you see like a lot of people here I have already used your product and had trouble with it like many people here. How to win friends and influencing people is not by calling them jackass.

I found Mobil 1 75-90 to be superior to your product. and a lot cheaper

Great diy. Did mine today in about 20 minutes. I only used 2 ramps did not jack the rear up and it was a breaze. I realize level would have been better but I know I didn't under or overfill based on amount pumped in. For the record I used Royal Purple which I bought from a raceshop in PA for about 12.50 quart.

Oh yeah I find great humor in people arguing over the best oil!!!!

return to OEM man fluid

To follow up my post above. I had immediately had hard shifts between 1st and second gear post fluid change to full synthetic royal purple.(shifting prior to this change was smooth and flawless).

I changed back to OEM 300 miles later and it shifts perfect now. I join the hordes of those who swear by OEM only........

Since many have issues with the Motiv bleeder, here's the best way I've found for flushing the clutch fluid. Take the reservoir cap off and connect one of these to the bleeder valve. Keep the pressure up to 20-25psi and refill the reservoir each time you fill the little pump cup. I think 3 or 4 rounds fully flushed it, but I can't remember exactly.

$20-25 at Harbor Freight

Also, that vacuum pump is worthless for brake fluid. I could never get it to seal in the bleeder valve well enough to get enough vacuum pressure.
