Clear as mud. I say this because there is already a Transmax Manual Transaxle 75W90 oil and it is different to the Syntrans Transaxle 75W90 oil :lol:

Good work an taking the time to investigate though.

I wrote a lenghty letter to Castrol and asked for explanation.

Will get back with reply.

Kind regards,

Jacques

Hello,

since I'm planning to change my gearbox oil this season for the first time since I own my Esprit S4s, I'm keen if there are any news on this topic? Is the Castrol Transmax Manual Transaxle 75W-90 the one to choose or is there still a second oil with the same name and other spec as stated above?

Kind regards

Stephan

In my country, it's the same and still available. I heard that on some markets, it's rebranded, bust same oil.

Kind regards,

jacques

Hello Jacques,

many thanks for your answer. So the Castrol Transmax Manual Transaxle 75W-90 is the one to go. Just to be curious - did you ever get an answer from Castrol to your mail in June 2020 regarding this topic (two oils with the same name but different specs)?

Kind regards

Stephan

Yes I did, and they replied, that it is essentially the same oil, renamed. There is no longer two kinds in that particular segment. Do I believe it? Hmm...

Kind regards,

Jacques
