Default What is the best manual transmission fluid for 2002 Honda Civic Coupe?


When I bought my 2002 Honda civic about 2 years ago and it had a grind from 2nd to 3rd gear at like 3k RPMS. I put honda manual transmission fluid in it and that helped and got it up to about 4k RPMS. I ran that for like 15,000 miles and when I changed my engine oil last time I changed the fluid to GM syncromesh. The grind is back at only like 3k RPMS so I want to know what I can change it to that will work best.

I'm looking for the most expensive / best product to put in a manual transmission with synchro isssues.

Youve got the best fluid in there, the syncro is just toast.
