Same stuff, less money

This is the same as the expensive GM Synchromesh at about half the price. Perfect for use in transaxles that have brass synchros (any make).

Oil. YAY!

Comments about Pennzoil Synchromesh Manual Transmission Fluid (1 Quart):

It's oil... the photo is not representative. What I picked up looked more like a bottle for gear oil, more tubular and a pointed tip.

Comments about Pennzoil Synchromesh Manual Transmission Fluid (1 Quart):

Excellent fluid to put in the transfer case. Also would work in transmission, but my transmission required something ATF. This is NOT for use where ATF is required, but works nicely otherwise.

Great fluid for transmissions with brass synchros

Comments about Pennzoil Synchromesh Manual Transmission Fluid (1 Quart):

Used in AX15 transmission, excellent improvement in shifting within a few days. Great product if you can't use GL5 fluids with your transmission.

      It's a good thing I checked online because it turns out they don't keep this gearlube out on the showroom floor. I wouldn't have asked if I didn't see it.

      from Pueblo CO

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Pennzoil Synchromesh Manual Transmission Fluid (1 Quart):

      Works really well. Immediately noticed easier shifting at all temperatures. I read online that it was good to use in the Ranger/Explorer transmission instead of Mercon. This oil seems to dissipate heat much easier and lubricates the synchros like a super oil!

      • Trans With Grinding Shift

      Comments about Pennzoil Synchromesh Manual Transmission Fluid (1 Quart):

      All of the manual transmissions with brass synchros that I've used Pennzoil Synchromesh in have had an improvement in shifting vs standard GL-4 gear oils. One caveat to keep in mind is that since Synchromesh is likely a thinner oil than the GL-4 your transmission calls for so I'd only recommend it in vehicles that see light duty use.

          Comments about Pennzoil Synchromesh Manual Transmission Fluid (1 Quart):

          Swapped out the "lifetime" synthetic 052 OEM fluid that was 12 years old with Redline MT. That worked OK but was very notchy in the cold and broke down within two years. Got VWs 070 fluid which was an improvement on the Redine that came out but as soon as the engine and tranny got hot the second gear synchro was not spooling up which meant the dreaded 2nd gear grind.

          Spoke with a VW tranny specialist who said to put in Redline Shock Proof. I did some research and Shock Proof got mixed reviews. This Pennzoil Synchromesh also got mixed reviews but some said it had fixed the VW 02J (manual) transmission 2nd gear grind. Well... after just a few miles there was a marked difference. A few hundred miles later and there's no sign of grinding. I'm ordering a couple of extra bottles just to make sure I have some on hand. Great stuff, doesn't thin out like the VW oil.

              A:

              No, Stan! The OEM fluid specification for your vehicle is the Mazda M-V. We always recommend using a fluid that meets the OEM requirement. The Pennzoil Platinum LV Multi-Vehicle ATF meets this specification.
