    Tips on keeping a Manual shifting well

    It is so difficult double clutching the 1-2 shift. I have a hard enough time catching the revs single clutching let alone if I double clutched it. But maybe if I rev it up I'll definitely try double clutching. Whats really funny though is that I can downshift to 2nd easier and better than in...

    Tips on keeping a Manual shifting well

    Yes, I was thinking of possibly every 3rd or so oil change. However, I was expecting atleast a few days of good shifting with the new MTF like I got with my 91. However, this was not the case. One day if I ever get the space, I'd LOVE to do a transmission restoration. I've wondered about...

    Tips on keeping a Manual shifting well

    I recently acquired a 2000 Honda Civic. I retired my old 91 civic from daily driving duties to only weekend trips and such. That transmission had well over 300+k miles on it however, I think those miles had more highway miles than what my car has. The 91 gearbox still shifts great however, I...

    Honda MTF fluid

    @Tegger Right, I corrected myself like 5 posts down. I don't know what I was thinking. I am just going to get regular motor oil. Not for cheapness sake, but it is what the manual says and it is probably the only thing that has ever been in there. Plus if I don't like it I can always change...

    Honda MTF fluid

    So the amsoil mtf would be better to get? I hear that regular motor oil might not work as well for the syncros due to friction fighting additives

    Honda MTF fluid

    I own a 91 civic with almost 300k miles on it. The manual says to use regular 5w-30 oil in it. But I was thinking of putting some of the Manual Transmission fluid from honda in it. If the MTF fluid is not advised what kind of oil should I use? Synthetic, Blend, or Conventional?
