    What gear oil..

    should go in my 96 manual 850. Autodata suggests 5w30 synthetic, Mitchell reckon Type F ATF, a Volvo specialist told me 80w/90 (which I reckon is wrong and now causing my 'sticky first gear' problem !) and Volvo go with Synthetic oil pn 11614237 but no actual spec ! Getting it from Volvo is right out ! so your thoughts please
