Dear Friends in the Forum,
I have read quite a lot in WWW car enthusiast forums about Amsoil MTG on its capability to smoothen gear shifts in synchronized manual transmissions requiring GL 4 specification. Comments like - transmission shifts like butter, almost removed the notchy gear shifts and/or gear grinding, and so forth. These got me interested to try the product as my shift from 1st to 2nd gear is a bit notchy but no grinding in my 2001 strada. Still the same experience with a new transmission fluid - Shell Spirax S2 G90 available locally.
I also read that Pennzoil Synchromesh and Redline MT90 transmission fluids have similar capability of Amsoil MTG. Some say, Pennzoil is better. Others in the forums who used MT90 shifted to Amsoil MTG.
Checked with Amsoil USA and was informed that there is no authorized dealer in The Philippines. Same situation with Pennzoil. However Amsoil product is available in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. Redline MT90 is available in the country.
I am still keen to buy Amsoil. Any leads or referrals on where to source the product locally will be much appreciated. If none, my recourse will be to import it or when I have a chance to travel in any of those countries, buy a few quarts.
