1994 SL2
2005 ION-2 Sedan
Default Royal Purple Max ATF

2005 Saturn Ion II 2.2 Manual transmission.
260,000 miles

Installed new full completed timing chain kit by Cloyes
Installed new Clutch Set

My question is what is in my subject, I want to know if it is the right one to put in my manual transmission Ion?

I tried to research but I am lost with the fluid language. So if possible please make it simple for me to understand, which is the right fluid?

I would like to get Royal Purple if it is available for Ion model. Trying to find something that will help it shift more smoothly.

Thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

According to this chart, you need their Synchromax fluid. GM part number 88861800 is the fluid you are replacing.

Use Synchromax for when the cold weather comes, trust me. Other grades will make shifting from 1,2,3 gear challanging and impossible in the winter months.
