Unless I'm really misunderstanding something here....
It says it'* reccommended....
Dexron III Is an AUTOMATIC transmission fluid. Not for manuals...

I didn't feel like looking it up. I know dexron is ATF, but i have seen some std'* that use it as well on other boards.

I wish I had a manual...

Well it has Dexron III in it as of now......
I have not picked it up..but i know its ready.
GM dealership looked it up and said Dexron III

Along with the Specialty Transmission shop that does them all day thought
it was supposed to be Dexron III

WTF?

I will have it changed if I have to....but I am hearing from more then one source
that ATF is very common now adays in manual trans. ??

That dealer is wrong, they should have looked in GM Dealerworld, simple as that. ATF has only a viscosity equivelent to 20w oil, so I'd change your fluid ASAP, otherwise you are going to have troubles!
Some manuals DO use ATF, and some Isuzu FWD 5 speeds used 5W30 engine oil. Transmissions are something I personally think fluid recommendations should be strictly followed, I've seen what can happen otherwise! Good Luck!

i would get a signed statement that this is what the manufacturer recommends from the shop before you drive the thing home. that way, if it does screw up, you can take them to court for the basic "you broke my friggin truck you morons!" lawsuit.
