Default Change Manuel Trans. Fluid?

The couple sources I've checked seem to specify changing trans. fluid
for automatic trans. but don't say anything about manual trans. This may
seem dumb but, is it the same fluid and change interval? If so, what
fluid? I've got an '89 Camry, 4 cyl., manual trans.

thanks.

Not the same stuff at all. Standard transmission are far from being as
tough on the oil as AT.
Normally, you'll find standard transmission (I prefer the word gearbox) oil
in weight like, 75w90, 80w90, 75x140, etc etc.
Try a good synthetic oil in your gearbox and let us know what you think.
89??? How long have you had it? It is overdue, IMHO.

I've only had it for a few months and I agree, it is overdue. It's only
got 120,000 which isn't bad for an '89. Strange how the owners manual
doesn't say anything about it.

thanks.

It should tell you the fluid type.
