"The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: diff oil should use what i.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 2 characters and must not contain more than 20 characters excluding wildcards."

that is getting really annoying
i have a 1995 XG Ute and was wondering the best Diff oil to put in it
im sure this has been asked many many times but due to the awsome search feature means i have to spend hours looking through posts

the label on the Diff is:
1TC
91OA-4005-TC
S/NO
Ratio 3.27:1

Cheers Eddie

If its NOT a Hydratrack, you could use an 85W140 or a straight 140 diff oil.
I use Penrite Limslip 140 in my EA.

it's got 222,222km on it and i doubt the diff oil has ever been changed do you reckon it ever needs to be changed? or just keep it full?

it dosent leak and theres no noise from it but to check it you just pump oil into it untill it comes out correct?

When the oil comes out, turn both the wheels so to help the oil spread around the diff and go through the bearings into the axle tubes.
