As manual transmissions become more complex there’s a need for more technologically advanced fluids to ensure vehicle reliability. Getting the right oil for your car is key to ensuring your gearbox operates as it is designed to and you get a smooth driving experience every day.
Castrol, with over 100 years of experience in developing transmission fluids, and being the choice of many leading car and transmissions manufacturers for factory-fill products, offers a range of manual transmission fluids for your cars requirements. Providing you the peace of mind that you are selecting the right oil for your vehicle.
Manual transmission fluid developed to suit Mitsubishi manual transmission and transaxle factory and service fill requirements
For all Mitsubishi manual transmissions and transaxles in passenger cars and light commercial vehicles
A manual transmission fluid of advanced design especially developed to provide easier gear changes over a wide temperature range.
It is particularly versatile in cold weather as it reduces shift effort at start-up, as well as controlling transmission noise and idle rattle at operating temperatures.
It should be used in manual transmissions of most car and light commercial vehicles (LCV’s) requiring GL-4 performance, where improved low temperature shift performance is required.
Full synthetic manual transmission lubricant with outstanding low temperature fluidity, oxidation stability and synchroniser performance.
Eaton has approved Castrol Syntrans 75W-85 for extended service intervals in mid-range transmissions. Also recommended for passenger car and light commercial vehicle transmissions, transaxles and transfer cases where API GL-3 or GL-4 and SAE 75W-85 or SAE 80 viscosity is specified.
It has proved to provide excellent synchroniser performance in a range of Mitsubishi passenger car and 4 Wheel drive manual transmissions. It is also effective in Holden Jackaroo and Rodeo manual transmissions for best cold shift performance and competition applications. It is also approved for Tremec TR3650 manual transmissions as found in the Ford Tickford TE, TS 50 and FPV models.
Castrol Syntrans 75W-85 is suitable where the following performance levels are specified:
Fully synthetic transmission fluid recommended for most passenger car conventional manual and “dry clutch” transmissions where API GL 4 lubricants are required. It is approved for use where Ford WSS-M2C200-D2 is specified.
Suitable in most manual transmissions where an automatic transmission fluid is recommended. It has much stronger wear performance than virtually all automatic transmission fluids and also retains viscosity in service exceptionally well.
Castrol Universal 80W-90 is a manual transmission and rear axle lubricant. The product is recommended for Holden VN V6 and V8 manual transmissions. It is also Castrol’s prime recommendation for all transaxles that include both helical and hypoid type gears. Vehicles with combined transmission and hypoid differentials where Castrol Universal 80W-90 is recommended include the following:
Castrol Universal 80W-90 is recommended in place of SAE 80W-90 GL-4 or 5 gear oil where improved cold shift is desired.
Transmax Manual E Long Life 40 is a specially formulated synthetic lubricant designed for fuel efficiency, extended drain intervals and severe service in heavy duty commercial vehicle transmissions which require a non-EP transmission lubricant. It is specially formulated to protect higher torque transmissions coupled with increased horsepower engines. It is approved for use in Eaton transmissions such as Eaton PS 386, Ultrashift Plus, Fuller Advantage, FR and RT Series transmissions.
