Re: The dreaded manual gearbox noise...

I follow the book that came with the car, supplied by Isuzu. But interesting the driver's manual for the last of the Holden Colarado' s recommended using Dexron VI in the manual gearbox. For anyone looking for an RG Colorado driver's manual, there's one here. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=...

Can you read any fault codes? A sticking or faulty SCV will log rail pressure fault codes.

If you have the 4JJ1 engine you have glow plugs. I'd have a look at them and the starting sequence timing.

Are you waiting long enough for the glow plug light to go out before cranking?

Check with Amsoil in Costa Rica. Amsoil Manual Transmission Fluid 5W-30 is supposed to be equivalent to the Besco oil.
