Use The proper Lubricant

Greetings all,

Just a word on rear differentials. Please check your manual for the proper fluid type and fill level. On my '80 300TD the rear differential requires SAE 90 hypoid gear oil, please don't confuse this with tranny fluid, it just won't lubricate the ring and pinion gears, but just heat up instead and provide little to no lubricating affect on your rear-end.
