    gear problems

    FYI, folks, I wouldn't recommend sticking MTF-3 in an old or worn gearbox let alone one with a possible problem, which I hope was resolved with the relevant suggestions. Valvoline 75W80 gear oil has resolved loads of issues for me on countless accords where Honda fluids have failed. ;)
