If it's a T5, which it most likely is, it takes ATF.

It's pretty safe to say that if it is a manual, it needs ATF. Even if it's not a T5, it is probably a very similar tranny (Tremec 3550, etc) and will also need ATF.

Re: boarg warner issue

There should be a tag on the transmission that labels its information. You can probably see it from under the car. It might be on top of the transmission so make sure to look there. Some have ran just gear oil in them, they should have ATF Dextron/Mercon III.

Re: boarg warner issue

listen to these guys, almost all modern trannies use dextron III or V

unless its a 4 speed.. then whoever put gear oil in there did so wrongfully.

Re: boarg warner issue

Dextron/Mercon IV has some anti foaming agents but they are not needed for our transmissions (I think at least)
