I'm running swepco. When I did the 30K service at a local Subaru shop I went with their "upgraded" fluids and that's what they use. They swear by it and people that've driven my car have commented on how smoothly my transmission shifts.

If you would like, I can double-check the exact weight and part numbers of the fluid they used.

I just did my 60k and changed the tranny fluid last weekend with Swepco 201 GL-5. It shifts much smoother than before.

80w90 is the correct weight.

Not sure about auto, my car is a manual. I'll check with them.

Thanks again !!

I have used suby engines ias a transplant engine but never actually owned one long enough to have to do actual maint work on them , HAHA !

Hey Noah,

You guys used Swepco in my transmission and differential, it's been working great and people comment on how well my transmission shifts. Was this Swepco 201 gl-5 80w90, and do you guys use it in automatic transmissions also?

Thank you much, hope all is well.
Yes we use swepco 201 80/90, and its designed only for differentials and manual transmissions.

Swepco does make a auto fluid if you like though.

Thanks,
Stan
