2007 VUE 2.2L
Dizzy What type transmission fluid?

I would really like to replace the fluid in my tranny with a synthetic.
It's a 2007 with the 2.2 and a manuel 5-speed. The owners manual specs say to use GM Part No.88861800. Does anybody know what aftermarket synthetic would be the equivalent?
I can find listing for the older VUE's, but nothing for the 2007.

not to tell you what to do but a manual trans put little stress on the fluid, low heat just kind of splashes around and lubes some bearings factory stuff is really all you need. Synthetic is just a feel good thing in this case.

Nonsense. It makes a noticeable difference in the shifting smoothness, especially if you live in a cold climate. It will also resist breakdown for much longer than conventional fluid.

Cheers,

To the original poster:

I believe a few posters here were using Redline synthetic with good results. Do a quick search on the tech forums. GM #88861800 is simply DexronIII transmission fluid. So that would be Redline part D4 ATF. Mobil1 synthetic ATF is also suitable.

Happy Re: What type transmission fluid?

The back of the owner's manual will have the type of transmission fluid required. For a 2007 VUE with a manual transmission you might need an ATF that meets (or exceeds) DEXRON-VI specifications, such as this synthetic blend from Mobil:
