#15 of 47 1996 Nissan 300ZX manual transmission fluid.
Oct 14, 2007 (8:53 pm)
What`s the best possible manual transmission fluid for a 1996 Nissan 300ZX? I have a new 98+ spec manual transmission in it. The dealer fill 75W90 GL4 gear oil doesn`t seem to give very good shifting quality. Would something like Royal Purple Synchromax or GM Synchromesh be a better choice? I tried Redline MT90 on teh old transmission and it was worse then the OEM fill.
Also,anyone know who makes these transmissions? I`ve talked to Borg Warner/Tremec,and Aisin and they said they don`t make them.

I purchased a 1994 5 spd. with 105K miles, drove it about 500 miles and noticed a burnt smell coming from rear or trans? Also make a grinding noise prior to trans warming up. Anyone having this issue? Is the next step to rebuild it?

I would check all the relays associated with the transmission, loose or dirty connection on one of these relays.

you might be experiencing the traction control kicking in, mine did the same thing until i took the fuse for the traction control out, it still stops fine and corners with no slippage, it will however shoot an abs code on the dash. do you hear a kind of rattling, it sounds like a rattle snake coming from the passenger side behind the seat when you try to launch, if so thats the trac control

#24 of 47 Gears are hard to go in.
Apr 25, 2008 (3:45 pm)
Hi guys. I just replaced the clutch on my 95 300z, but now the gears won't go in smoothly, I have to push really hard to put it in gear. When I drive, sometimes the gear will slip back to neutral. Also when I press the clutch, it feels spongy. I don't know what it could be the problem, and it wasn't doing it before I chaged the clutch. Can anyone help me out with this? Thanks.
