Don't use ATF its got friction enhancers in it. Manuals don't like it at all. AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sure it wasn't ford MTF thats also red, smells like ATF and tastes like it but isn't its not got the friction enhancers in it. In normal 900's I use Rover MTF for Honda based models as its actualy the Honda MTF but 4 quid cheaper. In all my tuned stuff (the Saab and others) I use Royal Purple Oils. Not cheap but the C900 box loves em. Matt > > -- > Grunff >
