Most Manual transmissions use 75W to 95W "gear oil". Some Manual Transmission oils are multigrade, e.g. 75W85 or 75W95. As in engine oils, use the heavier weight oil in hotter climates or for higher loads. Heavier is not better, lighter gives better performance and mileage. Synthetics are becomming more popular. If you have no idea what to use, a synthetic 75W95 (or 75W90, whatever) is a VERY safe bet, and a dead dinosaur 75W95 is the next best. in what It really depends on the applications. Some take motor oil, some take auto trans oil, some gear oil, and others take manual trans fluid.
