some vehicles can also take Automatic transmission fluid. but look in the owners manual to be certin Macs Transmissions (Houston, TX) 281-394-4951 Older vehicles used 90 wt Gear lube for MANUAL transmissions. Newer vehicles use 10 wt or other lighter oils. Refer to the owners manual to find out what is recommended.
