Re: Gl1, gl4 and gl5 gear oils

Transmissions must be GL4 not GL4/GL5. GL5 rated will eat the yellow metal synchros. And yes all the parts stores will tell you wrong. You will most likely not find it on the shelf and have to order it. Amsoil is a good source for GL4. Was surprised when I found out my 2001 Nissan Xterra 5 speed tra...
