Redline MT-90 was used as a replacement for the outgoing Redline MT-90, since it is well known that it eliminates a grind into 3rd gear in this vehicle when cold. I've been very happy with this gear lube.

MD1032,

How many quarts does your Toyota trans hold?

Glad to hear the Redline works well for you, I've used their trans fluids in the past with great success.

Hey cos,

It holds two quarts. I forgot to also copy Blackstone's description. They said that it looked good and not to worry about the low viscosity too much since no significant wear metals or contaminants showed up.

Very impressive. What viscosity did this start with? I think this is supposed to be higher than MTL, but could be wrong.

Yes, it is 75W-90, the same as Toyota recommends.

It starts out at about 15 cSt kinetic viscosity at 100C.

It "sheared-down" to 11.5 cSt (slightly below that of Redline's MT-85 offering), a loss of about 4 cSt.

Good wear readings for 54k.

If you ever have shifting problems in cold weather you could go down in viscosity to the Redline MT-85 without any loss in wear protection.
