I use GM Syncromesh, but Honda stuff is great too. I've read good things about Pennzoil Syncromesh fluid also.

Yep, there are 2 different types of the GM stuff, one's a lil more $ than the other but has some synthetic additives in it if I remember right. I've also read that the Pennzoil stuff is pretty the same as the GM stuff and as good.

This is the exact stuff you want. 99% of the GM dealers don't carry it, but just give them the part number and they should be able to order it.


The Pennzoil is supposed to be exactly the same, but it's even harder to find. A Pennzoil shop near my house never heard of it.

Nothing but genuine Honda MTF!!! Our tranny's are very sensitive
( the parts called synchronizers ) are a weak link in our trannys. People that have used Synthetic, 10W30 motor oil, Lucas Engine treatment, have really messed up thier trannies and experienced alot of GEAR GRINDING due to the sychros not sliding properly from inproper lubrication. I will stress to you please use nothing but what the manufacturer recommends. HONDA MTF. It may be a little pricey, but not as pricey as replacing the transmission!

I use amsoil MTF 5w30 synthetic synchromesh tranny fluid it's good stuff. and it's $9.70 a quart.

If you use higher then 5w-30 you'll end up with a gimped tranny. "Just remember if it doesn't say Synchromesh and Recommended for the Honda Genuine MTF then don't use it"
