1.Use the genuine Honda factory manual transmission oil. None of the other brands would give you the same shift feel or the smoothness. I know this as I have tried this myself. Some say use 40w engine oil, but it is all up to you.

2.Call Stafford motors or Teck (spelling) motors mate. They'll give you all the details you need.

3.With timing belt, I'd stick with genuine stuff. Bit pricey, but it is something that will last another 100K. Having said that, I know a lot of people who use after market timing belts and still haven't heard of any failures. So it all depends on how much you are willing to spend.

4. If you are getting the timing belt changed, always do the water pump at the same time. Also check and replace oil seals,etc. Don't forget to replace the t-belt tensioner too mate.

5. Oil selection is fine. To be honest, a genuine honda filter wouldn't cost you any more then a vic filter.. (based on 2008 prices, so things may have changed since then). I have use VIC filters a few time myself without any dramas.

4. Don't replace any other belts if they are still in good condition-money down the drain.

Cheers.

The weight is exactly where the problem is. Everyone recommends viscosities from 75w-80/90w as they are the normal viscosities used in many manual transmissions. However, I found out the hard way that those viscosities could really affect the shift quality. Spoke to my mechanic who works at Stafford and he told me to switch back the Honda fluids. Problem solved.. :)

Well, I can't really tell you exactly what weight you should use with different products. Stick with the OEM and you should be just fine..What is the price difference? Don't really know if a higher weight gearbox oil would affect your fuel consumption. That is sometimes the case with thicker engine oil though. The difference however is so minute that it is negligible.

Cheers.
