10w30 in AX-15 anyone?

Who's running 10w30 in their AX-15?? The newest part number from Chrysler translates into that oil for the AX-15......anyone using it?

Does it shift better/worse?

I use it and have no complaints. I switched from Mobil 1 synthetic 75-90w and it improved the shifting dramatically in my reman trans. Works fine down to well below zero regardless of whether I plug in the block heater or not. Mean Max recommended it to me and I have not looked back.

I personally run Redline in my jeep but there are a lot of people who run 10W30 and are happy with it. Seems to be a fairly even argument..

10w30 in mine. Shifts great, even in the coldest of weather.

Redline mt-90 in mine

I use it in my car as well so I just buy cases of it. Works great for me but im sure 10w30 would work fine.

I am sticking to specific MT oil though. Doesn't have short intervals for changing either so cost isnt much of an issue.

I'm running Redline MT-90 as well, and it's shifting, but could shift much better. I'm sure my sychros are slowing dying, but I want to try the motor oil to see if that helps.

Thanks guys!

I have had the 10w-30, royal purple, and now the redline. Redline is the best performing......but you're still SUPPOSED to put 10w-30 in it.

I've been using Penzoil Syncromesh for a year and so far she has been shifting like butter.

Used to use Redline but she feels better with the Syncromesh

You can get by with many different lubes but redline isn't widely avail. and I'm telling you from recent back to back test penzoil shifts smoother than mobil1 full syn 10w30. no comparison
