Question liquid is necessary for filling in in differential?

I from Russia, live in Moscow. 1 one month ago has bought Dodge Intrepid 2,7 (1998). The machine is fine!!!

But at us in Russia very few the American automobiles also are problems with good service stations. Mechanics do not know, what technical liquids should be filled in in this machine. I have a question. What liquid is necessary for filling in in differential? I only have understood, that her there only 1 litre. (1 quart).

If it is possible, inform its name. Or analogues. I shall try to buy her. Excuse, I very much

You are right that it takes 1 Quart of Differntial Fluid. It needs to be any standard, 75W-90 (or 80W-90 if that is all you can find)

Sad

And what is precisely necessary Differntial Fluid?

1. What is better - 75W-90 or 80W-90? Because it is possible to buy miscellaneous. What it is more better for the machine?

2. It is better than what firm of the manufacturer? As far as I have understood, company Mopar does not let out similar (or simply production of this company cannot be found in Russia). What other manufacturers let out similar? If it is possible, as these liquids (for гипоидной transmissions precisely refer to or not?)

3 In Russia there is no oil for the engine 5w30. It is sold only the European standard 5w40. whether it is possible to fill in oil of this standard in the engine? Whether it is possible to fill in synthetic oil in the engine? Or mineral oil is necessary only??

Unfortunately, in Russia it is impossible to find what or the literature on operation of machine Dodge Intrepid 2,7 (1998). And it is not clear, what liquids (what manufacturers) are necessary for filling in in the machine.

OK. This is all in my opinion only.. so take it with a grain of salt.


Engine oil, 5W-40, is FINE for your 2.7 Liter Engine in that car. If you change your oil every 3000-5000 Miles, (umm... 4000-7000 KM's ? I think?) then using 5W40 will not harm your engine at all. Any brand oil will work, provided it is of good quality. Fully Synthetic oil would be the best to use, as it will handle your cold Moscow winters MUCH better than regular oil.

For your Differential, I would just get the standard 75W-90 Gear lube that is used in regular Rear Wheel Drive cars. The brand really isn't as important here either.

One thing that i WOULD stress, is that you find a source of Mopar brand ATF+4 Transmission fluid. I am not sure how easy that is to find there, but you might be able to purchase it from a Chrysler or Jeep center if dodge isn't sold over there. Otherwise I would looking into having it shipped to you somehow. These transmissions work well, if you take care of them. make SURE you can get some Mopar ATF +4 fluid in there. (ATF +3 would work, but the +4 is better)

Whichever one you find is OK.

Differential oil is fine with any brand. For transmission oil, I recommend only mopar +3 or +4.

Actually synthetic is even better and more recommended than mineral, epspecially with your weather. 5W 40 is ok provided you change it regularly. But try and go with 0w 40 to help you with starting the engine, especially in winter.

Surf the internet! You'll find lots of information on sites like this one.

A complete service manual (in English) is available for download from somewhere. Would someone put up a pointer for this driver?

heh... Quaker state... right here from the states.... anyway... ANY of those three Gear Lubes WILL work.... I would personally go with the 75W-90, as it will lubricate better in cold weather.

In Russia gear oil changes you!
(sorry couldn't resist)

Must be cool to have a very different car from everyone else over there, unlike here where all i see are LH cars.

Welcome to the boards!!

I'm not a big fan of Quaker State products, but if that's all you can find...you should still be ok. Watch for foaming and sludging in the motor oil though. Quaker State (and Pennzoil) tend to attract and absorb moisture.

For the differential fluid, use the GL-5 (GL-6 IF you can find it).
