Hi All

Has anyone tried Forte Diff and Gear Treament in their 6 speed gearbox ??

Not got any major issues with box , sometimes a bit notchy but most times fine ....but thought might be worth adding some treatment ..preventative measures .

If anyone has ....how did you get on with it ? make any differences ?

I know the 6 speed box has special oil ...which i have changed recently with genuine stuff ....made a difference ... but dont want to add the treatment if going to make things worse .

Any help most appreciated

Karl

With your mileage it's the linkage cables which stretch causing poor gear changes.
Have a look on YouTube for "diesel geek gear linkage".
The video is brilliant and your car will be transformed!!

Hey, I hope you are still attached to this thread. I added this to my five speed after a fluid change and has made things more fluid. Did mess about with my linkage adjuster too to get smoother chnages and it has helped a bit. Have to twiddle with thatb to get right but managed to get it 1st and 2nd change nice with my son sitting in the cockpit and me moving the cable. Amyway, i swear by forte as I had it in my laguna manual before too. 2 x 1 ltr bottles of new fluid + 100ml tube = the 2.1ltr you need. Have you had a go yet?
