Gear oil type for 210 4 speed tranny....

I personally use common 30 weight engine oil (non-detergent if I can find it) and have never had a problem with it. Paul A (who is kind of the expert on these) uses tranny oil (90 weight) but I have found too many instances where 90 weight made these transmissions too hard to shift so I don't.
The choice is yours!

I think Rivergate was recommending Redline Synthetic MTF at one time.

I had a 1980 210 with the 5 speed and the Datsun dealer recommended regular ATF when new. Wish I had that tranny now :cryin:
