What lubricant should I use in a 5 speed manual from a '93 Sentra XE? I assume gear oil, but is there any specific brand, weight, synthetic, etc... I should be using? What is the recommended fill procedure? I searched, but didn't find anything that was much help.

Thanks.

i used Royal Purple GL4 80-90w but you can run any GL4 gear lube and it takes 3 quarts to fill up a 5-speed 1.6 gear box. there is a fill hole just under the transmission mount. some times it will not come loose, you can fill it through the speedo cable hole also.
