Synchromesh

Any of you guys had any luck with synchromesh... I have some grinding going into a couple gears. I thought about trying this before going through the tranny.

I had some grinding from 1st to 2nd about 300-400 miles ago so I used Syncromesh. I now only notice it barely while it's supper cold. Other than that the grinding is gone. I love the stuff and will keep using it.

I run syncromesh in My ax15 and it shifts perfect. Its definitely My first choice. But its not very cold weather friendly. If its real cold where you live and your running syncromesh right now you can expect a little grindin and rough shiftin until your trans is good and heated up. If you wanna try I different gear oil that'll handle the cold better I'd definitely go with Redline MT-90

I live in Louisiana and extreme cold days are rare. So synchromesh should suffice

I just changed to Synchromesh from whatever the PO had in my AX5 & have noticed smoother shifts.

It's been unusually cold here in Oklahoma lately & until the tranny warms up, it is a little stiff. Nothing major tho. Every manual tranny I've ever delt with in freezing weather is sticky for the first couple of miles till things get up to operating temp.

I say go for it.

is it an additive to your tranny fluid or is it a tranny fluid ?? my tranny won't go into gear sometimes or it grinds.

It's not an additive it's actually fluid. About 3.5 qts, and good deal on the code!
