Question Castrol Syntorq 75w85

Is Castrol Syntorq only available from a stealership? I've called three auto parts stores (one is a commercial trucks supplier), and all three said they can't get this stuff.

I'm hesitant to use anything else, tho...

$78 + $17 shipping vs $92 + $7.50 tax at the stealership. ~$100 either way...just plain expensive.

But you gotta pay to play, right?

That looks like Idaho to me... But its Montana...

Like my local part store (if you call local 105 miles round trip) carries the Castrol SynTorque but the last time I bought it it was $15 a quart...

I know i'm getting due for trans fluid change and I need 2 more quarts to do it...

According to the dealer its every 100K miles... But it seem to be get rather loaded with debris and dark color by about 75-80K. Now remember there is no filter to protect the trans from debris so if the oil getting funky you better change it...

Amsoil has a GL-4 gear oil for transmissions.

AMSOIL - Synthetic Manual Transmission and Transaxle Gear Lube 75W-90 (MTG)

I have absolutely no reservations about putting this in when I get around to changing mine. It's half the price of the OEM stuff, and likely a dealer not too far away.

No....I'm not an Amsoil dealer, but I have and do use their products with absolutely no problems at all.
