Six-speed manual trans fluid recommendation?
I didn't see a "general tech forum" and this trans is found in at least five different MB product lines, so I'm asking here.
I have a 2005 Jeep Wrangler with the DaimlerChrysler NSG370 six-speed manual. Chrysler recommends MS-9224 spec fluid as a service fill for this trans. I'm not at all happy with how this fluid has thinned over the last 8,000 miles which promotes a nasty countershaft rattle under the right conditions.
Does anyone know the MB fluid spec for this gearbox? I know it's found in certain C's, CLK's, SLK's, Sprinters, non-US M's, non-US E's, and a few other platforms. I'm trying to go "off-spec" with this gearbox and I need some guidance. What are you guys running in this unit?
