RE: Differential Capacity?
I used OEM grade synthetic 75w/140 and i filled it up with about 3 quarts, the stuff was $15 a quart, very expensive but worth it if it has extra protection. I filled it up til the gear oil started to trickle out of the differential fill hole...if i need to drain some out i'd like to know, but i do not see how extra oil in the diff. could hurt it since people sell diff. covers that hold extra oil (higher capacity) i mean it's not like an engine, i do not think there is any/much oil pressure in a diff. i'd think extra oil in it wouldn't hurt, if i'm wrong let me know so i can drain some out. my main concern on this was to make sure it took roughly 3 quarts to make sure it isnt leaking, because when you take the cover off for the first time there is no true gasket on the cover, they use sealant, just like i did, you basically have to make ur own gasket with RTV sealant, i bought Permatex Blue RTV silicone gasket maker. Thanks guy, any help is great!!!
