Tranny Question

What fluid should be used in a T5? I thought it was ATF, but I was wondeing if theres something else I should use instead. I installed a T5 in my jeep last week and filled it with ATF. It was difficult to shift into second gear for 4-5 days. Then it started shifting fine for another 3 days. I assumed something was sticking in the tranny and finally freed up. So I changed the ATF thinking it would be good to clean out any junk. Now the problem is back. Any suggestions?

I have two different manuals that say two different things, one says to use gear oil and the other says to use ATF, I'm running gear oil in mine, put 3k on it so far with no problems.
I'm curious to find out what the majority use.

I would personally use Gear Oil, it would certainly be safer if you aren't totally sure.

Not too many manuals take ATF, usually only some of the new ones.

I know when I was playing with Mustangs their T5 used ATF. I've heard differing opinions from Jeep crowd though.
