    Ford Genuine Fluid XT-M5-QS Full Synthetic Manual Transmission Fluid

    We never discussed this on this forum but I read a lot about it on other MX5 forums. This transmission oil is raved about and has the highest rating. Not cheap but am considering putting it into my transmission before my MIB trip. if you are not familiar with it I'll post a few reviews. Any comments or opinions?

    I'm using that now. My six speed is notchy and would crunch second when cold. It's smoother now. Not any huge difference between the others I have tried. Amsoil, Redline and Lucas is what I used before. I'll use the Ford again when it's time.

    We talked about it years ago when I put it in my Miata and again in my 370Z.

    That’s very pricey from the Amazon seller. You can get it for about $17 each at the Ford dealer here.

    I put it in Molly and it really smoothed it out. But then again it was probably 25 years old what was in there so olive oil would have smoothed it out!

    I'm planning to use that fluid in Jan 2019 when I reach the 30K maintenance requiring manual transmission and differential fluid replacement. O.A. suggested we call it a tech Saturday at his garage and I will Provide the chicken wings and Coronas.
