I've read every single post and still cant make up my mind on which way to go???? OEM Nissan fluid or Redline MT-85?

Any more suggestions for a '13 G37S?

Also, from what i've read, temperature plays a big factor in the fluid. I live in Central FL where its pretty warm/hot year round. That kinda has me leaning toward the Redline, but those few posts where some members were unhappy with the Redline make me skittish!

I switched back to redline mt85 may of 2016, ~10K miles ago. So far so good in the cold. It's still a bit notchy when cold until the trans warms up. I'll usually double clutch the first few shifts. Will report back next winter .

Upgrading to the Z1 diff cover and it calls for .5 more fluid can I mix in redline heavy duty shockproof with my existing GL5 redline fluid. What do you guys recommend?

Hey guys Iím gonna be changing my trans and diff oil soon and was wondering where to get OEM oils and plug washers from? Is the dealer the only place or is there a good website to use? I use Royal Purple motor oil but am leaning towards OEM trans and diff oil. Thanks

if the local dealer website is expensive get the part number and buy from ebay since its usually free shipping. but theres a good chance the dealer site has it for almost the same price

I've done my MT fluid 3 or 4 times now. Have yet to replace the washer. Don't plan on it when I do it next time either. Used redline fluids for both trans and diff. Get it on amazon, ebay, etc.

Thanks Iíll have to call the dealer for pricing and part number to compare. Iím going to be driving my G cross country soon after changing the oils Iíd prefer to replace the washers just to be sure. Iíve also heard mixed reviews about Red Line.

I canít find any fluids or washers on any dealer or ifiniti parts websites, looks like OEM or red line fluid is about $20 a qt on amazon. Is that what everyone is paying? $80 for 4 quarts every change?

I'm going to be changing MT fluid this weekend. Went to my local auto parts stores and they only carries Mobil1, Royal Purple and Lucas. One of the store managers recommend to get mobile 1 75w90 for tranny fluid swap.

Make sure what ever you use is GL4 rated. Don't use a gl5 fluid in the trans.

Roger. May I ask why? The mobile 1 fluid I bought is API-GL5. I was unable to find GL4 fluid locally.

MT has brass components (synchro's). GL5 is harsh towards such metals. Refer to your owners manual/fsm for correct fluids to use.



I used this the last few times.
