    My pleasure. Thought it was about time someone did some sound empirical data collection. When you see things like this with Uncle Scotty's cocktail separating etc, one has to wonder what it means long term. Now we have an idea

    This is VERY VALUABLE information.

    It goes toward proving what many have suspected all along -- the guru mixes are at best questionable (I'm being lenient). Reports like this should be stickied.

    THANK YOU!

    Sad to read the link. I'll admit, posting what evolved into a namesake "cocktail" online was ambitious on his part. However namecalling and repetition aren't as valuable as actual data as it turns out!

    That pic with the nicely layered cocktail components was great!

    Just changed out the transmission oil of 2009 WRX.

    I am sad to say it has never had it done before. I drained some pretty disgraceful looking fluid. There were some metal shavings, some stink and chunks adhered to the magnetic drain plug. The torx T70 was hard to find, but for $20 I found it and performed the change.

    I used the glorious Subaru Extra S 75W90 by Idemitsu. I did notice a better feel right away and downshifting into first is quite a bit easier. I am gonna order another batch!

    Hi!
    Is anyone using Royal Purple 75-140? Need some opinions on transmission fluid? What do you use and why.
    Blammo is using Subaru Extra S 75w90 is this ideal weight? And which transmission filter? Call me paranoid but I want to change it at 10,000. My job is close to home, I'll have had the car like 4 years before I hit 30,000. Looking for helpful suggestions.

    See UOAs and opinions, this thread.

    Ideal depends on environment but in general, yes, as this is the works fluid at a viscosity chosen by the works.

    And which transmission filter?
    None. There is no transmission filter on manual gearbox cars. There IS a transmission filter on automatic cars; it is shaped like an oil filter and is often confused for an oil filter, but isn't. If your car is manual, see this thread as stated. If your car is automatic, DO NOT use manual gearbox lube in your transmission (in other words, IGNORE THIS THREAD). Use the correct automatic transmission fluid and get the correct automatic transmission filter from any dealer.

    See whether your drain bolt is a T-70 or a conventional 21mm bolt and have the right socket around. Also see if you have a funnel and tubing that'll prevent you from having to take off the IC (I would not take off the IC for a fluid change and use tubing instead).

    Thanks for the info SD_GR. My 2013 is a 5 speed, my 04 was automatic. I've never changed it in a 5 speed before. (As you can probably tell)
    I'm new to manual transmission. I'm the guy who waited till my thirties to buy a tuner car. Pay less insurance, not get hassled by cops. (I went to school with 4 of them in my town) so with a MT do I flush it or just drain and fill?

    I just drain and refill. It is nearly impossible to drain the gearbox entirely so either measure what you remove and replace the same volume or carefully add little by little so as to not overfill. The 2013 gearbox may be different to my 2002 but the principle is the same. Since you have a 2013 and the car is under warranty, keep dated receipts for everything and make sure the fluid you end up chosing is the correct spec as per your owner's book.
