How to identify your 1989 Tranny? Peugeot or not to Peugeot?? That is the Question!
 
I just purchased a 1989 YJ with a 6cyl and manual tranny. To my dismay I learned that 89's possibly came with the pathetic Peugeot Tranny or the more durable AX15!!! Yikes!! Well upon some internet searching, I discovered an awesome site which describes in detail and pics the different trannys!! Upon comparing mine to the photo lineup, it is clear that I have the AX15. Now here is my question to you,,,,,,I have a tough time putting it into 1st or 2nd once it warms up a bit..Before committing to the dreaded synchro change, I want to change the fluid to see if it cures it. Which type of fluid is best for the AX15? I live in central Florida which has a very hot and humid climate if that matters. Thanks is advance for all your knowledge you are about to provide me!!

Here is the link to identify your transmission

Has anyone had experience with Valvoline Synchromesh vs Redline or Royal Blue??
