Does anyone know if any of the big name brands make a conventional 75w-90 that does not have the limited slip additive? Valvoline used to but now it has the limited slip stuff. Thanks!

What is the reason you do not want the limited slip additive?

For use in a manual transmission.

I've got some Shell Spirax HD 80W-90. Doesn't say anything about LS on thebot tle, so I'm guessing it doesn't have the friction modifier.

Can you even get a conventional 75W-90? I've only seen it in synthetic.

How about Amsoil 75W-90 manual trans fluid?

No 75w-90's in conventional form come to mind. However, Pennzoil has a syn 75w-90 GL-4. The product data sheet mentions it as an ideal fluid for manual gear boxes and does not mention LS additives.

Meanwhile their product data sheet for the syn 75w-90 GL-5 states it's ideal for LS diffs and has a LS additive.

Last I checked, both fluids are on Amazon. But the 75w-90 GL-4 listing has an incorrect product description. They copy and pasted the info from the GL-5 product.

Here's the product sheets if your interested:

I have some conventional Valvoline 75w-90 in my stash. It's not marked LS, and I bought it in 2012. The Forester has it in the manual transaxle and rear diff. No problems in 18,000 miles!

[How about Subaru Extra-S ? It's a 75w-90, and one of a few that works safely in their manual transmissions. It is also a GL-5 rated fluid.

That is what I've been using on my Corolla; it's been the best fluid I've used. Synthetic 75w-90, even GL-4s have been notchy. I'm apprehensive about using Valvoline anymore since it now contains limited slip friction modifier!

Mobil Delvac 75w-90 is, of course, synthetic, but is not marketed for limited slip and meets GL-5 and MT-1.

Eneos comes to mind in which I have seen at NAPA stores. Only issue its synthetic. Eneos GL-5 75W-90

You can probably get it from a Ford dealer. They require you add the LS additive separately so you know the stuff they sell doesn't have it.

Interesting. I wonder if dino GL4`s will give smoother shifting over synth GL4`s? I have a case of Pennzoil Gear Plus 80W90 GL4 that I`ve never tried.
