What type of manual transmission fluid?

I losted my manual guide for my Rsx type S, and my clutch is getting stiffer and grinds due to high mileage. What type of manual transmission fluid does a Rsx type S takes? What kind should I use?

Your clutch is stiff so you want to change your tranny fluid?
Where's the connection am I misunderstanding?

the manual will most likely tell you honda mtf

but i've been using it and its starting to blow my balls with the 3rd gear pause/stop, might consider getting amsoil syncromesh fluid

amsoil has lasted me a long time, longer than oem fluid and much longer than Redline. you could also try the new ACURA MTF.

Use about half a bottle of Lucas Oil automatic transmission aid, and the rest with Honda/Acura MTF for the 6speed. It will shift nice and smooth, if you wish you can opt to use syncromesh with my technique it worked that way as well with my old LS.

Unless you get get the exact list of chemicals in the Lucas automatic fluid I highly advise against doing this.

As posted before either the new Honda MTF(green label?), Amsoil, or Pennzoil/GM synchromesh.

I myself love Amsoil. Solved my 3rd gear "pause" and I have never once grinded 2nd.

I agree with you on that.

But even though this is not technically correct, it is working great in my K, and my old LS is still shifting great nearly 3 years later. So I don't for see any problems down the road.

Will the GM version be the same, or at least work the same?

If you can get GM friction modeified synchromesh that would be your best bet. I use amsoil now and its pretty good but I'm sure the friction modified synchromesh will be fine

I think that's what it is. It's $16/quart. Sound about right?
