MOPAR
 Manual Transmission Lubricant or equivalent (meeting the requirements of Chrysler Material Standard MS-9224).

Its a 5W-30 weight manual trans fluid. I know Amsoil makes it, called Synchromesh manual transmission fluid.

If its only 1500, just check the fluid level and call it good. Unless you want to put a synthetic fluid in there.

When you do need to change it I also recommend the Amsoil stuff.

Save your money on the snake oil.....

All your tranny requires is something that meets Chrysler specification MS-9224

Just checked mine only has 3000 miles and it from factory was half quart low. I have seen several threads about this that's why I checked mine. Second third and fourth amsoil. It's all I use in my diesel's and my jeep.

You can buy Amsoil directly from their website.

Amsoil and Pennzoil both meet the Chrysler spec. BTW neither one is snake oil, they are synthetic.

I have been running Redline MTL full synthetic and it meets Chrysler specs...and was much cheaper then the Mopar brand you get at the stealership.
