Hold up! Proteges do NOT have any manual tranny fluid change schedule in maintenance! It is expected from the factory that you will have the original MT oil for the life of the vehicle. I have spoken to people who have trailer queen race car Proteges and they use the stock oil. General concensus on the Protege forums i've been to is to leave it alone.

FYI, lighter oil makes for crisper, nicer shifts and faster syncro wear.
