Reccomended tranny fluid for 07 GT 5 Speed..?

I currently have 68k miles on my car and I wanted to change the transmission fluid. I have a 2007 mustang gt 5 speed manual (tr3650) and I've been trying to do research on what would be the best transmission fluid for me and i got 3 answers. Pennzoil synchromesh, royal purple synchro max MTF, and redline d4 ATF... I was wondering what you guys might have used and are happy with??

Thanks!

Speaking from experience as a technician I would stick with what ford recommends transmissions are designed to be used with a certain fluid use of the wrong fluid can cause big problems trans fluid and rear diff fluids are something that I stick with what the manufacturer calls for but that's just my opinion

You are just going to get the same answers you already have, So pick one and see if you like it.

Re: Reccomended tranny fluid for 07 GT 5 Speed..?

I use Mobil1 exclusively, but I tell you what to do to get the best answer- Contact TREMEC directly and ask them. Ask them about regular and synthetics. I have contacted them before and got a real person with a lengthily explanation. The list was short for my 5 speed T5 transmission, Mobil1 automatic transmission fluid or Scyncromesh. For you and your transmission, please post what you do. Good Luck!

I added RP to my rear differential, engine and trans. They feel better except the transmission. Didn't notice anything better so when I decide to switch again, I'll go OEM in the transmission.

Same here, I run in the diff and motor, but I'll be switching to Mobil 1 next oil change

I agree! Ford has designed it to work with the car.

Re: Reccomended tranny fluid for 07 GT 5 Speed..?

I run RP in my motor and rear end. I really don't think there is a ton of difference except if using full synthetic's or not. You buy a good brand and you will probably be satisfied. I've used alot of different oils and because I stay up on regular maintenance I have no problems. I prefer synthetics, but to each their own. I agree with robb15033, ya can't go wrong calling the mfg. I'm out.
