is there a way to see if you have enough tranny oil in ur tranny? i recently changed my tranny oil to redline and i think i didn't put enough oil.
Redline MT-90 is only for auto or manual transaxles without LSD. With LSD they recommend 75w90.00 scrub said:About Royal Purple or Redline having products that could hurt your syncros I think that both companies make gear fluids with Sulfer in it. Sulfer is bad for yellow metals that make up the syncros. The Redline oil that you should use for the Celica is MT-90. I'm not sure about the different Royal Purple oils. I suggest that you ask questions about oil and lube over there. You can get some very educated answers.
Right, but Redline state that their GL5 75w90 is twice more corrosive than their GL4 fluid for normal tranny without LSD.GTSnut said:75w90 for Royal Purple as well.
Hmmm. Didn't know that about Redline. I think Redline is still a great product, but I am really happy with this RP, and I think you will be too. I don't know how much, if any, difference you will notice since you are going from one great product to another.nyoneway said:

Royal Purple's fluid that's compitable with LSD contains less sulfur than the Redline counterpart. That's why I will be switching to Royal Purple.
i have lsd and was thinking of trying Redline. but since you mentioned it i think ill just wait and stay with amsoil for now.nyoneway said:Redline is as good as Royal Purple. The reason I'm switching is because I'm getting a LSD and the best Redline fluid for the LSD is corrosive to our bronze/copper synchros but Royal Purple are safer.
Dude, I was just messing around and pointing out the obvious. How less informative was my post than Immortal's? He laid out no factual evidence of anything just posted a general "i know this guy and he says XXX" statement. Anyone can do that, this is the internet.GTSnut said:
So do you have anything informational about the subject of gear oils to add to this thread? Or just shooting off at the hip about non related issues?
Those test are done by separate labs. Not affiliated with Amsoil. I am not an amsoil rep. I just use the stuff and have for years.nyoneway said:
Ok Amsoil rep.
The last thing we were talking about was tranny fluid/gear oil and NOT engine oil?
I take all those Amsoil tests with a grain of salt.
