Manual Transmission Fluids (MTF or “gear oils”) are special lubricants which are used in manual transmissions, which are still the most popular type of transmission found in vehicles in the UK. Unlike automatic transmissions, manual transmission have to cope with the input forces from the driver during changing gear, and we’re all guilty of the occasional grind!
The quality of the Manual Transmission Fluid in your gearbox is fundamental to transmission function and longevity. Using the wrong oil in your gearbox can lead to selection problems, vibration, whining noises and sluggish function. Despite this, some garages put GL5 oils in all manual gearboxes regardless of the manufacturer’s specifications. If you don’t trust the quality of the product they’re using, buy the correct product from RAVENOL and make sure your mechanic uses it.
RAVENOL’s high performance Manual Transmission Fluids have been specially designed for optimum power delivery and smooth transmission operation, allowing for quicker gear selection changes, quieter running and improved fuel consumption. Our products are used and recommended by leading transmission specialists such as Bristol Transmissions.
