Trans/Transfer case Fluid

I am changing my tranny and t-case fluid and I was wondering what fluid I should use for both? Also I have a new transmission from jasper and it say synthetic mercron, is this right?

Dont need synthetic in T-case. Regular mercon is fine. If the warranty for Jasper trans states must use synthetic ATF, then use it

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

Re: Trans/Transfer case Fluid

A lot use the Redline MTL (Manual Transmission Lube) and claim better shift quality and less gear noise. I myself prefer the mtl to the atf. There are a couple brands of mtl, I'm sure they all would work.

Re: Trans/Transfer case Fluid

The redline mtl is advertised as made for manual trans that call for atf,... just a side note

Re: Trans/Transfer case Fluid

^^^^ Castrol TranSynd is another product made for this "class" of gear box. The 5-speeds in the original Saturns were of this type, and their folks swear by the TranSynd. Supposedly available at truck stops, but I haven't been able to find it locally.

Re: Trans/Transfer case Fluid

When I bought the TranSynd for my 94, I got it at the "local" (nothing is that local to me) ZF distributor. It was $45-$50/gal about 4-5 years ago. Cheers!
