part source said they dont have it, so did canadian tire.

Im looking for penzoil as it the OE stuff used in GM and Chrysler vehicles, even has a chrysler part number on it.

Napa has it and Ill be picking it up tomorrow.

So by that theory , GM synchromesh is just penzoil in a GM labeled bottle?

Ether which way post up where you end up getting it from my BMW trans needs a fluid change. Not sure if I should go with synchromesh or redline MTL

I always used redline in my BMW, and it worked great, I know alot of people swear by syncromesh though, but ive never heard of people using it in bmw transmissions, I know alot of people had problem with it in subaru transmissions as well.

Thanks for the offer Bogan, i didnt read that until now, I have a buddy at NAPA that got me a deal on it. Ill keep you in mind ofr next time.

I am not sure but i think redline MTL is a replacement for cars that run ATF or other light weight oil in the trans like mazda and honda. I dont think it is a suitable replacement if your trans runs 75 or 80w90 from the factory

So my BMW calls for standard gear oil in the gearbox, like a basic 75w90. It protests a bit going into 2nd when you try to get the shift off fast, which makes me want to use GM Syncromesh.

But it could be it just needs new fluid period, what would I use in place of 75w90? Redline, or GM Syncromesh? And which Redline? What about Amsoil gear oil? I like Amsoil from motorcycle stuff, I would always use it, great stuff. Amsoild sells a Syncromesh and a 75w90 gear oil, and that's it.

Kinda thinking the syncromesh stuff is all pretty light fluid, but then again this car makes all of 12hp so extreme pressure gear oil is probably not even needed.

Id lean more to the redline mt-90 or MTL. Gm syncromesh is pretty light Its closer to oil viscosity I belive.

I've heard good things about synchromesh but am also curious as to why a lot of Honda guys chose it over the Honda MTF new formula?
