What would happen if I used 10w-30 or 15w-50 mobil 1 fully synthetic motor oil in one of my 5spd transmissions...?? Ive got an XT turbo 2wd 5spd, an XT6 FT4WD 5spd, and the 87+ RX 5spd D/R.

It won't stick to the gears well enough to properly lubricate everything inside the transmission.

Used to be all trannies, and tranfercases were 80, or 90 gear lube. Then alot went to either 5W30 or 10W30. Now, alot have ATF in them. Not much other than the seals have changed, from what I can tell. Maybe a slight different cut on the gears to reduce gear whine.
Never know untill some one tries something, if it will work or not........
