FLUID RECOMMENDATIONS





All models: multipurpose gear oil API GL-4; SAE 75W-90 or 80W-90
 

FLUID LEVEL CHECK



See Figures 1 and 2

The oil in the manual transmission should be checked at least every 15,000 miles (24,000 km) or every 12 months, and replaced every 25,000-30,000 miles (40,000-48,000 km) or every 24 months.

  1. With the truck parked on a level surface, remove the filler plug from the side of the transmission housing.
  2.  
  3. If the lubricant begins to trickle out of the hole, there is enough. Otherwise, carefully insert your finger (watch out for sharp threads!) and check to see if the oil is up to the edge of the hole.

  1. If the oil level is low, add oil through the hole until the level is at the edge of the hole. Most gear lubricants come in a plastic squeeze bottle with a nozzle that eases this process. You can also use a common everyday kitchen baster.

  3. Install the filler plug and tighten it to 18-25 ft. lbs. (25-34 Nm). Run the engine and check for leaks.
