I am getting ready to do 30000 mile service on my car and was wondering if anyone knows where i could find the transmission fluid for these cars anywhere but the dealer. If my memory serves me correctly it takes 75w 80 but all i can find is 75w 90.

I've looked at multiple auto parts store even the small non chain stores. my local Mitsubishi dealer wants to charge me $20 a quart for the stuff. They "can only get it by the 5 gallon bucket". I found redline makes a 75w 80 but I would have to order it.

I do believe that syncromesh is 75w80, or am I wrong??? Either way, that is my favorite tranny fluid on the market.

My shop filled mine with 75w90 before they realised their mistake(the supplier had sent to wrong oil claiming it was ok).They called around to see if it would be ok then insisted that they put the right oil in it.It took 3 more hours to get it but i am glad they bothered to make it right.

You should be able to find an oil retailer in most cities that carry just about everything.(wholesalers that sell to stores and shops)
Running a google searh all the sites all that listed it were overseas.
