Being that this is my first manual shift car, what is the mileage interval most people change their tranny fluid at? I checked the maintenance guide and they do not specify for passenger vehicles, only trucks (@ 60,000). Thanks!

40,000 miles IMHO
Fist time it was getting crappy shifting about that point. And after 45k the second time, it was even worse.

I also recommend just regular Mobile1 as it's good, EASY as hell to get, affordable, etc. Just be sure to do 3.2qts exactly with whatever good oil you use.

DO NOT START THIS AGAIN
lol

Any quality brand synthetic is fine

Mobil 1, Royal Purple, etc.

I just like Mobil 1 cause it's good, much cheaper than many others, can get it locally anywhere in the US, etc. I have put personally 53k on my B, bought it with 43k, changed it right away, and just changed it again. I am a very aggressive driver and it still shifts like butter :cool:.
As much a dump truck tranny can shift :D

Are we not supposed to use ATF for the 01 trans? That is what came from the factory, isn't it?
