    You can use 10w/30, but it may not shift all that great. Stick to honda MTF...you'll need like 2.5 quarts.

    you can def. use just motor oil. its only a d motor. Since his questions been answered I was wanted to try the gmc syncomesh iam sure this has been discussed before but takes forever to load pages on my computer. I know ive heard of people using it in there transmission and its to be really smooth and noticable changes once added. what do you think?

    What I have been using is GM Syncromesh Transmission fluid w/friction modifiers/ Pennzoil Syncromesh fluid. It works great for notchy fluid.
