AMSoil GL-4 is pretty much the best. Usually, I recommend Syncromesh, which is a good bit thinner. Great product if you live in cold weather. Cheap too.
Otherwise, you know the drill.
What trans fluid of should i run in my beat O2M Sspeed?
The transmission has 170k on it and i can hear slight syncro noise when shifting into second gear and it just shifts rough over all. I'm wondering what trans fluid i should run? I'm hoping there is a fluid that will quite/preserve the syncros.
I'm currently considering amsoil gl-4 or one of redlines oils any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
had no issues running Amsoil MTG on my old 02J. tranny worked fine, even cold winter mornings on weekend excursions at Vermont for the ski/snowboard season
for VW oils...
around 2004... VW switched from G050 (which was a synthetic GL-4 oil) to G052, a super thin conventional oil (which works great in the winter, for my 02Q tranny).
since then, the G05# has been replaced by G060 & G070.... which G070 sort of replaces G052 (G060 replaces G050).
