    4th gear grind

    Done some reading... obviously a common problem.

    I put fluid in that I picked up at autozone, but after reading the threads, it sounds like I should drain that and put some Extra S in.

    Does anyone know how I get that?

    I really don't want to take it to the dealer to get the fluid changed, its so easy to do it at home but I can't find it anywhere.

    There's another thread goin' on about this topic...I get some random 4th gear grinds in my 03 WRX. Haven't in awhile, but it has happened. It's almost as if it depends on what mood my tranny's in.

    So... this always happens AFTER I make a post.... I found this post on some other forum. Maybe helpful for those who want to buy Extra-S:
