Default Cold Weather Shifting

So its that time again and the cold weather and hard shifting is back.

I had read so many threads where people have been using the Red Line MTL. It seams some use one weight others use another, some use synthetic some dont.

Can someone provide me with a link that is the correct stuff to order. Preferably amazon if possible.

Also how much is needed

Get a exhaust I had that problem, doing so releases so much back pressure...

i got 2 of these.

Purple Power 75W-90 full synthetic. the 2.4 liter 6-speed manual requires like 1.8 or 1.9qt. (i think, its been a while)

Amazon.com: Royal Purple 01300 Max Gear 75W-90 High Performance Synthetic Automotive Gear Oil - 1 Quart: Automotive Amazon.com: Royal Purple 01300 Max Gear 75W-90 High Performance Synthetic Automotive Gear Oil - 1 Quart: Automotive


and so far the issue has been way better. i dont think it completely disappeared but it def. goes away faster and makes shifting much smoother.

Cool thanks noodile! so you were ok with the synthetic ? did you use a pump or need anything else for the flush?

any benefit to MTL over royal purple?

Oil
Pump
Drain bucket
Preferably jack or ramps.
and the worst part is i think a 24mm socket for the drain plug. 95% sure it was a 24mm. but just in case try to have 23-25 around.

Sounds good! One last question did you jack yours up on four jack stands so the car is flat? or just jack up the front end like an oil change?
