The refill capacity for the manual transmission is 2.4 liters.

yeah, it's either 2.4 or 2.5 liters. I filled mine up today with Redline. Shifts smoothly into reverse and 1st, but made 2nd, 3rd rougher to get into......

I think he mistaken Liter as Quarts. &nbsp;It should hold 2.5 quarts. Buy 3 bottles.

Differential holds 1.5 quarts, buy 2 bottles. Or buy 4 bottles even, but 1 bottle extra will cover situation that you might need more.

when shifting becomes a real bitch!!! especially gearing down to 1st. &nbsp;its just not as smooth as newer tranny oil.

No one is mistaking liters as quarts...2.4 Liters IS 2.54 quarts.

Should you change the transmission oil with MT- 90 before any problems start arising? &nbsp;My car has 123,000 KM (73,383 Mi) on it.
