Post 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 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.
