it should say in your car manual,

it is usually red in colour (so it can be easily identified)
It will even say on it gear or transmission oil/lubricantation.

it allso comes in for manual or automatic.

Try to get some Pennzoil Synchromesh. That stuff works wonders in the cold and should eliminate all grinding.

I used Red Line Oil's MTL and it worked well for me and we have temperatures below -20 here!!!

make sure you guys are using gear oil in manual tranny's and not tranny fluid.
