Unread post by Blair » Sat Oct 07, 2017 7:18 am

Just checked my dipstick and my axle oil is empty. What kind should I use? I also could not find a place to put it in

Your shop manual shows this info. SAE80w-90 gear oil. MUST NOT BE GL5 spec GL3-4 is ok. Fill port is on the left upper side of the differential just below the starter. Plug has a 5/8" square nut on it for removal. Add gear oil until it runs out the fill plug hole. let drip until it is a slow drip (not overfull), re-install plug.
