Any recommendations for a synthetic manual tranny fluid? Any that I should avoid, any that are recommended for Hondas?

Does it spec a GL-4 lube? Just curious because some import transmission have brass parts which will corrode using a GL-5. Anyway I'm running mobil1 syn currently. I've used redline mtl in place of 75-90 gear oil in the past. I also ran redline shockproof heavy in an SER.

I'm not sure actually... I was just hoping a few people would just say X or Y.

I think the viscosity is in the range of regular motor oil for the manual.

That's weird -- I specifically put your vehicle in o.0 Perhaps the US spec is different?

Here's what it says verbatim:

*: Balancer belt applies to 4-cylinder models only.
In any case, the mechanic should know

treb, unfortunately, Honda considers all of Canada a severe service zone even though out neighbours in Buffalo get far worse extremes in weather - the Toronto area actually gets a pretty mild winter.
I figured that would be the case -- S. Florida is the same way due to heat

Maybe the balancer belt doesn't get replaced normally? Maybe the only downside to a belt failure there is a bit more pronounced secondary vibration?

I would guess it does no real harm if it fails.

I was wondering this too -- I wasn't aware that honda even used a rotating balance shaft

Here's what I found

http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread/1637806

Perhaps not the same engine as in the Accord... But the belt in question is the smaller one on the bottom portion that connects from the crank to the two smaller outer toothed pulleys.


I'm willing to bet that T-belt kits come with that belt and that little extension spring for the tensioner

ah, that is a prelude motor. the d series and b series engines do not have that.

i am unsure if the f series (accord motors) have it.

she has a very nice setup! but she even said that most people that put a b series transmission on an h or f series motor tend to remove the balancing shaft... interesting.
