    I found pennzoil synchromesh but cannot seem to find the friction modified version... can it be bought somewhere other than a GM dealer?

    thanks

    Why not buy from the stealership?

    speciffically for that reason... the stealing

    a guart of penzoil syncromesh at autozone was only $3.00 or so and I've heard people say they paid $12 at a dealership

    just thought I might not have been looking in the right places

    I've always wondered....is that penzoil shit the same as the GM? b/c I hate having to spend $30 every time I need to replace my tranny oil (which is often because my tranny leaks....:( ).

    pennzoil says right on it that it replaces GM part numbers 12345577 and 12345### (can't remember that one)

    everyone says it's all the same stuff

    AMSoil sells a "synchromesh" product that says it replaces both GM syncromesh and GM Synchromesh friction modified

    how much different is the friction modified version anyway?
