I was checking out some the other day at Advanced auto and at 7.99 a quart, its quite expensive. Does anyone have any experience with Redline products? I have never seen it compared to any of the other leading oil manuf. in any of the tests online. thanks.

After reading tons of reviews of guys running the redline MT-90 in their manual tranny's and x-case i put it in my 5spd and all my notchy shifting disapeared. It so far has been a great investment. It's -2 outside right now and on the drive home from my girlfriends tonight it shifted excellent.

i first used it at my 30k tune-up for my t-case, tranny, and diffs. my gears shift nice and smooth and i have had no problems. 7.99 is a bit pricey though... i remember paying 5 per bottle.

Another vote for Redline stuff. At 12K miles I put it in the tranny, transfer case, and both diffs. Have not had any problems since. Did a drain and refill at 24K miles and am about 5000 miles away from another drain and refill. That is overkill, but I like to check the condition of the fluid (for evidence of premature wear) often, and this is an easy way of doing it.

I used Amsoil, and now I am sorry that I did. I have heard other people say the same thing here. Hard shifting into second, and hard downshifting into various gears. I am ready to try the Redline MT-90 based on the reviews here. I just want to know the cheapest place online to buy it. I paid alot for the Amsoil, and right about now I don't know if I really care anymore. I just don't want to have a tranny that shifts like crap anymore. It was fine until I put the Amsoil in there. Every Toyota I've had had a problem as soon as I changed out the factory juice. I even tried topping it off with the extra 2 cups, as discussed on this forum, and the shifting is still crappy. So where should I buy the MT-90???

I use it thoughout my truck. About six months ago i flushed out my auto tranny with their D4 (about 220.00 worth) and it seems to hold up pretty well. I change it every 5K since im on that toyota maintence plan up to 55K so toyota changes it for me. Ive got 10K left and im thinking i may try amsoil since thats a pretty popular oil to use. Overall its awesome stuff.

Sucks that i just put Mobil-1 throughout my tranny, transfer case, and diffs...i got that notchey shifting thing too. I paid the same price 7.99 a bottle/liter so it sucks that it's notchey...might just change the tranny out with some of this stuff to give it a shot. You guys thing the rest of the drivetrain is ok with Mobil one in it? I'm going to search for more info now.

i put it in my M-tranny and it fixed the 1st-2nd shifting instantly. cold mornings are no longer an issue.

i havent used any of their other oils.. i use AMSOil for everything else.

Redline MT-90 is excellent for manual transmissions. I swear by it. Shop around online, I'm sure you can find it cheaper and maybe even get free delivery. I think I bought mine from Jeg's.

Are you guys putting MT90 in your transfercase also?
i don't, but there's nothing wrong with doing that.

i bought enough amsoil for diffs, tranny, and xfer case.. then found out that redline would work better for the tranny, so i just put it in the tranny.
