Getrag 5 Speed

The Getrag 5 speed, or Getrag G360 was used behind the 5.9L Cummins 12v from 1989 - 1993. Many owners report reliability issues with the transmission, especially when compared with other manual transmissions that have been used behind the Cummins. A popular replacement for the Getrag G360 is the NV4500. Some 1st Gen Cummins owners suggest adding additional oil to the transmission to provide heat dissipation to the input bearing, which is a common failure point (due to a combination of heat, vibration, and the torque of the Cummins turbodiesel). The Getrag 5 speed is often expensive to repair and difficult to find parts for, attributed to the fact that it was only used for 4 years behind the Cummins. Getrag transmissions have been used by all of the Big 3, mostly in passenger cars.
