S/V/C70 Aisin transmissions - Mobil 3309 alternatives
Changing out the valve body on my 2002 V70T - AISIN AW55-50/51SN transmission.
Last time I flushed it I used a 20 litre drum of genuine Mobil 3309 mineral oil - around $250 delivered at
Only need 4 to 6 litres now and dont want another 20 litre drum of it hanging around.
I can only get smaller amounts it from GL lubricants in 1 quart bottles @ $12 each plus delivery which is ok but it will take a week to get here unless I pick it up and they are hard to get hold of on the phone ( 9645 1806)
Could also have bought Toyota TIV (same as Mobil 3309)from local Toyota shop but all out & waiting Japan shipment
So found these alternatives bragging JS 3309 s/ Toyota TIV compatibility:
Valvoline 4L maxlife ATF ( full synthetic)- $34.99 at bunnnings!
Penrite 4L ATF FS ( full synthetic) - $39.99 at autobarn on special
Nulon Full synthetic multi vehicle trans fluid - $42 on ebay or $60 at autobarn or $91 at repco
All those are readily available whereas the 3309 is not so Im thinking should I just switch and run with local stuff I can easily get?
Any reason why full synth will be an issue and will it be an issue if mixed in with the mineral based 3309 already in the car?
