Is that the stuff you can buy that smells like grape because gear oil stinks so much?

No, it stinks like regular gear oil. Probably from the additives. Has the consistency of 5W20 though. It's good stuff but a bit pricey. I've been thinking about experimenting with it in my wagon. The old A833 in my El Camino loves it and we always use it in later S10s that come through the shop with NV3500 in them. Quieter than ATF and shift smoother than 80W90.

Sweet! Thanks for the info Jess!

I've been doing research much as I can to try and make it last. I figure it comes behind the 4.8 in a heavy truck, I think it should be ok In a car.

These 3 240sx all have S10 nv3500 setups.

Sorry, I thought I had attached this pic to my last post but I guess it didn't stick. Anyway, here's the part number.
