1980 Datsun 210 5 speed transmission fluid / oil change

Recommended Posts

Hello i have a 1980 Nissan/Datsun 210 5 speed with a A14 engine. I want to give the transmission an oild/fluid change. Ive been told that these transmissions dont actually take transmission fluid but gear oil. Is this true? What grade and product do i have to use?

Thanks a lot.

The above.



Can't stress this enough. NOT GL-5


Yes GL-5 is better and stronger with 50% more anti scuff sulphur additives, but the extra additives are what is dangerous to our transmissions.  Don't let some collage kid tell you it supercedes the GL-4.
