Clutch issues

Does anyone know what kind of grease or oil is used in the clutch housing?

There is grease on the splines of the input shaft, and maybe some on the receiving end of the clutch lever and actuator rod.

As for gear oil in the gearbox, most replace it with Redline MT90.

When you take off from a stop, sometimes the car goes into neutral and shuts down for 5 minutes. Then it starts and it's like nothing happened. The error code says it's the clutch accentuator sensor. I read somewhere that if you raise the car up and remove the boot, you can fill it with grease and it should run better. I used 3 in oen oil and it only lasted about 3 months and it has started doing it again. Thought I might be using the wrong thing.

Yes, I know that, but I found out if you remove the boot from underneath and fill it with grease, the problem was solved for about 3-4 months. I don't want to put money into something the dealerships told me they weren't even sure where the sensor was located.
