I recently purchased some of this full synthetic oil, thinking it would make my gearbox smoother and quieter. Boy was I wrong. It lasted about 3000k in my gearbox before I finally got fed up with it and drained it out.

The gearbox was noticeably quieter immediately after I put it in. However, shifting when cold became an ugly ordeal. Grinding into 1st, a denial of access to 2nd gear without excessive force, and notchy shifts even after the oil had warmed up. It eventually got to the point where all my shifts became unbearably notchy and unacceptable.

I can't say that I recommend this product to anyone. Despite hearing bad things about synthetic gear oil on the forum, I decided that I needed to form my own conclusions about it. A very annoying and expensive lesson. From now on, I will research things on the forum better and stick to the wonderful semi-synthetic GM Syncromesh that's supposed to be in my gearbox! 2 shifts after switching back to it and I wondered why I had even allowed that synthetic oil to stay in as long as it did.
