MM5 Manual Transmission

It's about time for me to get my Xtreme parked for the winter. I've been working on getting my newest S-10 acquisition ready for the road. It's a 1989 2WD regular cab with a 5 speed manual trans. Right now, the transmission has got Dexron ATF in it, but I'm wondering if this is correct. The owners manual that I got with the truck does not have a listing for the MM5 transmission that is in it. Can anybody tell me if Dexron is the right fluid for it ... or should it use gear lube?

Re: MM5 Manual Transmission

MM5 is the RPO code for the transmission. There are 4 different RPO codes listed in the owner's manual for the 5 speed manual trans. One takes gear lube, and the other 3 take ATF. My only dilemma is that the MM5 RPO code is not listed in the owner's manual at all so I don't know which fluid I should use. The only reason that this is a question is that I'm hearing a nasty growling noise when the truck is moving, and if it's supposed to have gear lube in it, then I can understand why.

Re: MM5 Manual Transmission

some of the t-5 trannys use the sycromesch oil. That is what i am going to use in mine when i replace the clutch. by the way that shit is expensive, over 10 bucks a quart.

Re: MM5 Manual Transmission

the MM5 RPO is for manual 5-spd equipment, like pedals,master cyl., slave cyl. etc.

Re: MM5 Manual Transmission

I have the same RPO code and it also says MY2 when I called the dealership the guy could not tell me which transmission by the codes. He said to climb under the truck and look for a tag?

Re: MM5 Manual Transmission

I'm really tired of recommending this:
Honda makes a tranny juice for their manual trannys that is magic. It is a little thicker than ATF and is almost clear. I have 3 dimes with 5 speeds (T5s) and have installed this stuff in each one. It reduced grinding and my '91 goes to the drags pretty regularly. I can beat the synchros most of the time when I power shift, but it is alot less pronounced now.
Anyway, it's about $8/qt IIRC and it really works. I also would recommend adding a 1/2 QT of Lucas oil additive. This stuff also works well. It sticks to moving parts.

S10 addiction: (1)'82 S10, 383, 700R4, Shorty,
(2) '85 S10, 3.4, 700R4 4x4 stretch cab (Redneck Truck), (3) '90 S10 2.5, 5 speed shorty,
(4) '91 S10, Built 3.4, 5 speed shorty (Voodoo Truck), (5) '92 S10, 2.5, 5 speed shorty, (Barbie Truck),
(6) '83 S10, 327, TH 350, shorty (13.00 best),
(7) '92 S10, 2.5 5 speed, Shorty,
(8) 1979 LUV, Buick 3.8 V6, TH 350 Shorty.

Re: MM5 Manual Transmission

Is this a NV3500? and if it is not, what kind is it? I got it with a 2.5 liter from another S-10. Any factual identification will be a plus, as this is the tranny I'm planning on stuffing in my dime.

Re: MM5 Manual Transmission

C'mon folks. I would really like an answer to this, short of loading it up and hauling it to a transmission shop to get it ID'd.

This is the one I plan on stuffing into my dime, and will need a positive ID to get the adapter to switch to a electric speedo.

Please help me out. All of the photos I found on the web do NOT have clear enough photos to match this with.


PLEASE HELP ID THIS TRANNY!!!!!!!

Re: MM5 Manual Transmission

2nd pic is an isuzu logo... wouldn't be surprised if that went with the isuzu diesel powered s10 they sold in the mid 80's (1.9, 2.0, 2.2l)

More than likely it's the izuzu 4 speed . us cheap guys that would only pay for the base trucks got those .

While pretty much indestructible the gear ratio selection in them things were...... not optimal .

And as I recall , it ran ATF.
