Default What type of manual transmission oil does a 1991 Honda civic use?

The oil can be for the years '91-2000 or for a Honda Accord.

You use a (.gear oil )in manual transmissions,not transmission fluid.Most of the time just a 80-90 w gear oil is all you need to use .

80/90 would kill a honda tranny....































its recommended for older honda trannys that you used honda transmission fluid....or plain jane 5w30 motor oil.

The 1991 Civic manual states put 10w-40 in your transmission, but that's way before Honda release their new Manual Transmission Fluid. So I would recommend using Honda Brand MTF. Also, a lot of Honda guys are having success using GM Synchromesh in their manual transmissions, and that's what I am currently using in my 1991 Civic CRX Si.

I second that motion--switched to GM Synchromesh and haven't had a problem.
