Transmission fluid quick question!

Hows it going everyone ! Ive just recently purchase a 2005 Acura TL 6MT and i was wondering if anyone knows if amsoil manual synchromesh transmission fluid is good for the TL. I've seen good results of it being used on rsx type s but I'm not sure if there is a better preference for the TL. Also would there be a problem if i do a transmission flush and replace it with a new type of tranny fluid ? Thanks for your time !

Go with what works, ACDelco Synchromesh Friction Modified. Accept no substitutes.

Yes, but this conversation is about manual transmissions and, unless I am mistaken, you have an automatic.

To the OP, there are literally hundreds of posts here which supports the notion the best gear lube for cars with the 6-Speed manual is ACDelco Synchromesh Friction Modified. There is no need to look any further for the best MTF for your transmission.

You laugh but I saw someone in FB group put DW1 in a MT TL lol.
