Not sure if I will try that again I have a another tranny/differential that has 435,000 miles on it using gl5 and it still shifted just fine. Brand, weight, milea...

Re: unhappy with 80w-90 gear oil

Petros, the problem is that this transmission didn't grind or balk with the old, smelly, black water that was in it when I originally drained the fluid. All I could find at the auto parts store was some weight that was waaay off (I'm sure you can find my post). This is pretty much the only fluid tha...

I know this is reviving an old post but I am researching which oil to use for cold shifting. Has anyone tried the MT-90 75W90 that Redline suggests?
I bought a jug of it, but have yet to dump it into the trans. I will report back once I do.

Re: 1984 SR5 292,xxx $3200-Denver

Yes, it's much safer to crash in an old shoe box made of cardboard and tinfoil than a modern car. :lol: :roll: Newer cars are safer, you just can't get around that. Let's compare! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR_f4ENMo2o A few things to notice: 1. The deformation of the vehicle around the doors. ...

Does this car have adjustable intermittent wipers or cruise control?
Intermittent wipers yes, cruise control no
ADJUSTABLE intermittent wipers, or wipers with a single intermittent setting?

Re: severe vibration above 50 mph on acceleration

- was this one of the EMPI axles you'd installed some years ago? yes, that is all I have been using because rockauto has them cheap, and they are new.
