So instead of being shot after 100,000 miles of driving this fluid may last 200,000 or 300,000 miles. When you refill, which should be almost exactly 4qts. It can cause completely stuck valves, resulting in the complete loss of one or more gears.

The 16 valve has the most miles on it, nearing 315,000, and it shifts like butter all the time but I have attended to the shift mechanisms several times - from cleaning and lubricating the shift lever mechanism to changing the bushings on the rods. This is achieved by directing said fluid through a number of small channels within the gearbox.
I've reached my 10 attachment limit in the post Will continue in the next one! The 75w90 stuff is best used for the differentials, so I just went with his word and things are working well for now. I have noticed that each of my cars has a pace that it works best at - shift too slowly and the first to second exchange can crunch, shift too fast and the reaction is similar.
