The F5M42 is a 5 speed manual transaxle used in the TE and TF Magna with the 2.4L 4 cylinder engine.

The F5M42 is a much simpler design to the transaxles used in earlier Magnas. It uses a two-shaft design (whereas the older transaxles used three) and doesn't need to reverse the torque before output. On earlier Magna/Veradas the torque had to be reversed because the engine rotated in the opposite direction to the wheels.

Instead of using a conventional flywheel the F5M42 uses a three piece flywheel and flexible plate assembly to reduce drivetrain vibration.
