Synthetic Synchromesh Transmission Fluid (5W-30) (MTFQT)
Is this something that is available at a parts store or has to be ordered. Just curious would mobil 1 5w30 synthetic work?

Also Amsoil or Redline in their respective synchromesh viscosities. Both are full synthetic and excellent.

I don't know what oil is equal to the Amsoil stuff. Maybe Pablo or someone does. You will probably be able to find something like it at a store. But Maybe not in a synthetic variety.

Don't know for sure though.
