I'm considering changing the fluid in the front diff. of my manual 95 metro since its still the same that came from the factory over 120,000 miles ago. Now, apparently with a manual transmission you can put either normal gear oil in it, or ATF fluid? What's the difference and what do you think I should use? It was quickly explained to me that you can use either or, but ATF fluid is thinner whereas gear oil is thicker? I think mine came from the factory with 75w90, can anyone confirm this?
I have access to acouple different weights of gear oil, regular ATF, and syntetic ATF at the price of cost at my work..
Thats the best bet because I percieved the author as not knowing what fluid was originally in his manual tranny. If he does know that, then he should take that knowledge over to BITOG where he can ask further recommendations.
