If filling the tranny, use GL4 fluid such as Redline MT-90 or if you live
where it's cold, MTL. Make sure it has friction modifiers for the

If the diff, Mobil 1 Gear Oil (GL5) is the correct stuff.

So, I've had my tranny out of the car for a while and now I'd like to put
it back. I plan to drain all the old fluid out and replace w/ Mobil 1
75W-90 gear oil. I took out the plug this afternoon, but nothing came
out. Is this normal? I don't have a manual, but I guess you just top it
up until it flows out, right? Is there any separate drain plug or only
one drain/fill plug? I will tip the tranny over a bit to drain if it's
only one plug, but I have to wait till I can get my hands on the gear
oil. Any other tips/comments would be much appreciated if you BTDT.
