type of transmission fluid for MTX-75
What is the proper type of transmission fluid for an MTX-75?
I've been looking around and have found that 75w-90 would work.
But what is "safe" for the transmission?

go to your ford dealer. and get motorcraft gear oil

Thats like a million dollars though!

ZXthrizzle05 01-29-2013 11:46 PM

nah man. I believe I paid like 25 bux for a quart

ZXthrizzle05 01-29-2013 11:47 PM

better to put the right stuff in then pay a thousand dollars more for something that has broken in the future

PRSman25 01-29-2013 11:57 PM

25 bucks a quart is outrageous!
75 smackaroos to do a fluid exchange? ><

like I said. spend the money now or spend LOTS more later

Its common opinion on here that anything but the Ford fluid doesn't work well. Tends to affect shift quality. Spend the money once and get the correct stuff.

And that is the XT-M5-QS stuff correct?

back when HTPerformance was around they put amsoil euro 10w40 in my tranny. that worked ok for a couple years. But i had a 3rd gear grind.

I then changed that fluid out to penzoil syncromesh , 3rd gear grind is gone and its been in for about 2 years i think with no issues.

When i change it out again , im gunna suck it up and buy the ford stuff.
