SWEET! I am doing a tranny fluid swap this weekend and this information is great. Granted, I was planning on using the Redline MTL/MT-90 blend that others recommend. So, I would have been safe no matter what.

I have a 2003 and thankfully I have had no issues. I guess using GL-4 will help to keep it that way.

Depends on where you use it.

For the tranny, you MUST use a GL-4 specification oil because the tranny has yellow metals (brass, etc) in it. GL-5 can ruin it. Most RedLine oils are GL-4, but not all. Mobil 75w-90 synthetic is definitely GL-5.

I used Mobil 1 75w-90 in my differential because it has no yellow metals. Just this past weekend, I switched my tranny to a 50/50 mixture of Redline MTL and MT-90. Both of these oils are GL-4 compliant.

Checkout Redlineoil.com for complete information on the specifications and weights.

Aloha,
Redline MTL and MT-90 Transmission oils are GL-4. Redline 75W-90 gear oil is
GL-5 / GL-6.
Just about all other Manual Transmission oils are GL-5.

This post was a real live saver!!!

I was about to have Castrol Synthetic put in my Tran when I read this, so I called Castrol.

Castrol stated that the higher level of additives in the GL-5 gear oil will in fact attack the brass syncros in transmissions.

Castrol stated that PL-5 is definetly NOT backward compatible to GL-4.

This really makes me wonder about Nissan.

What are they doing designing/manufacturing atransmission which requires a lubricant which is no longer produced by any of the major oil companies?


I will have my transmission oil replaced by Nissan, with their oil, to insure that they will honor the drivetrain warranty.

I am not taking any chance they could claim problems are caused by anyone elses oil.
