Red Line MT85 – GL-4 Gear Oil

£20.95£75.95

Red Line MT-85 Manual Transmission Lubricant is a popular replacement for the Nissan 350z and 370z along with Hyundai, Kia Mercedes Benz and Mitsubishi.

Satisfies the gear oil viscosity requirements of 75W, 80W, 85W and motor oil viscosities of SAE 30 and 5W30

Key Features

  • Safe for brass synchros, as it lacks the reactive sulfurs found in most GL-5 oils that cause damage
  • Offers quicker shifts, perfect synchronizer coefficient of friction
  • Eliminates notchy shifting, even when cold
  • High performance gear protection and longer synchro life
  • Excellent gear and synchro protection, balanced slipperiness for easier shifting in cold climates
  • Excellent for high and low mileage transmissions
  • Compatible with petroleum and other synthetics
  • Recommended for GL-1, GL-3, and GL-4 applications as well as where most special synchromesh fluids are specified

Sold in 1 US Quarts or 1 US Gallon Bottles

Red Line makes gear oils for specific applications, not one type to satisfy most fairly well.

Their GL-5 differential lubricants contain friction modifiers and reducers to lubricate limited-slip clutches properly and reduce friction of the ring and pinion. Non Slip or "NS" gear oils are designed for transmission use where synchronizers need the proper friction to synchronize gear shifts.

The “MT” series is designed for synchronized gearshift applications where lower sulfur levels are desired.

All formulas have a high viscosity index to deliver relatively constant viscosity with temperature change. Synthetic polyol ester base stocks deliver excellent lubrication under extreme conditions, superior shear and oxidation stability, as well as natural multigrade properties, eliminating the need for unstable thickeners.

Red Line gear and transmission oils are recommended for passenger car, commercial and racing applications.

RED LINE MT-85 HIGH-PERFORMANCE GEAR OIL is a fully-synthetic ester-based lubricant designed for use in manual transmissions and front-wheel-drive transaxles. This shear-stable formula resists breakdown for extended periods and offers more consistent viscosity in warm and cold temperatures for less gear noise and improved shifting. This fluid is less slippery for improved synchronizer coefficient of friction and offers stronger film strength for better wear protection.

  • MTL, MT-85 & MT-90 are not for use in differentials with hypoid gears
  • Excellent gear and synchro protection, balanced slipperiness for easier shifting in cold climates
  • Excellent for high- and low-mile transmissions
  • Compatible with petroleums and other synthetics
