does it work?
thats what i wana find out!

changed the oil, what came out was not very nice, thick and brown! nasty!

notice the difference already with the oil change, changing gear is slicker! as for the additive, it is supposed to take time to work, so will let you know!

additives do help,,but there's nowt like new oil,,whats mad is alot of manufactures don't have a schedule for the gear box oil changes:eek:,,but how i see it is the gear box takes alot more stick than folk think plus the fact they don't have any filter system,so changing the oil regular is well worth it,Ive used slick50 for engines & gear boxes & you can feel the differenceT:

hi mate forgot to mention i had a citreon zs with the 1.9 pug engine/gear box,,bought it with 36k on clock & got rid with over 200k on clock & that had a whine in 2nd & 3rd all those miles of owning it never got any worse & the T4 1.9TD we have as a slight 2nd & 3rd whine but it doesnt leak/jump out of gear or crunch so sometimes its one of those things you"ve to live with Ive just used one of those small tubes of moly slip & it seemed to make the gears select abit betterT:
from what ive used in the past i would recommend slick50 treatment but it seems expensive for the amount you getT::)

thanks for the replies

the guy on ebay sent me two seperate packages of molyslip :) so i'm gona run the new oil for 10,000 miles then change again. with the state of the old oil, doubt it had been changed.

a little tip i picked up from a van expert, is to overfill the box a little:) in my manual it states the oil should be 10mm below the fill level 2.5 ltrs. i have put in 3ltrs and its on the fill line, runs fine.

as the gearbox is splash fed, its supposed to help!
