Guys,

Anyone has this experiences using both brand gear oil before?

I've been using Type II FF for few years, and so far so good.

Last week did a gear oil change, but this time using Kaaz LSD. The end-result so far was not so favorable to my opinion. Car now travel >500km from the day I changed it. Car felt a bit heavier. BTW, mine engine was K20A-R accord.

Was thinking to try out the MTF3 as heard good remark about it.

To those who experienced them, please share your verdict here.

Thanks and Selamat Berpuasa.

Aja, just poured in MTF-III for about 1000km already, so far so good.

Before this, used Cusco gear oil, in the morning (especially on cold rainy mornings), shifts are a bit 'sticky'

but the MTF-III is smooth, maybe minyak still baru kot.

I've been on the redline/bluegel before my gearbox was jammed (gear 1 stuck cannot release).
Then after the problem, I shifted to MTF III for almost a year and really enjoyed it.
Recently, I've decided to try another oil since that place only carry Kaaz LSD oil.
I would say, the MTF III was smoother when changing from 1-2-3...

BTW, I'm running on K20A EP3.

I'm using both of it but now stick to MTFIII. But I pour some addactive to protect inner parts of the GB & makes it more smoother. That addactive was not sell at any shops in Msia, brought fr US and meant to use for drag car, can pour into the engine as well

So, in general which one is better? Type 2 FF or MTFIII Ultra?

Might need to do gear-lube change again before raya lah, car really felt like kereta lembu now..

But MTFIII for RM180 for 4Litre pretty cheap, isn't?

kalau jadi beli, who wanna share? Honda gearbox only require circa 1.9L before extra gear oil dripping out.

i used MTF III Ultra & engine oil also Honda Semi Syn... i find that if u use back honda own lubricant on a HOnda, everything is superb. No need expensive aftermarket lubricants like motul,cusco,kaaz,hks,torco, etc

Just buy the 4L can and use the extra 2L to flush ur gearbox of the previous oil to get rid of any possible sludge....

Next round buy again n keep the balance for spare or to use for next oil change...thats what i did...still have the balance in my room waiting for next oil change

And yes rm190 for 4L is cheap especially when compared to other oils like redline at rm68 per liter

mADmAN,

You can easily get it from spareparts shop & if not mistaken is around RM50-RM60 per litre. 1 litre 1 bottle. Must looked for LSD one. reading should be 80-90.

But I got it from my mechanic as he's the dealer for Penzoil engine & gear oil...:biggrin:

mostly here i find are Q8 and Motul and castrol etc etc...

usually i prefer to go to the workshop and buy and change there itself...dont really like going to 1 place to buy then another to change the oil. most workshops here are motul or q8 or castrol etc etc
