Gearbox Oil -T5(5-speed)
ok bout a month ago now i had full service done on the car, i asked him especially to change gearbox and diff oil.
The car is:
89 Ea s-pack
after he changed the gearbox oil i have had some strange noises in my gearbox. like on the way home from the mechanic i noticed the noises,
i cant see me saving up the money to get the gearbox reconditioned anytime soon.
my thoughts are, that he has used a thinner gearbox oil, maybe designed for newer cars. i was thinking that maybe if i went down to autobarn or somewhere and got some gearbox oil designed for older cars, and that is a thick (heavy) oil that my gearbox will go back to being a silent thing again.
what oil do you other guys with t5's use? whats it worth? and where can i get it?
or am i totally off the ball and need a full recondition job done on my gearbox?
thanx in advance,
