Oil capacity and type questions...
OK, SO I am going to convert my truck over to Amsoil this week, but need some info.
First of all, capacities:
-Allison 6 speed trans with stock pan (enough for a complete flush and filter change)
-Duramax engine oil (including filter)
-stock rear end
-Transmission. ATL or Torque-Drive (ATD)
-Engine. I think I have my mind made up on this one already. Going with the HDD 5W-30
-Differential. no idea which one to use.
-Engine oil filter: I want to go with the Ea filter but don't know which one.
My stock air filter is still fine and I will probably stick with it.
Thanks for any and all help!
bigdaddydiesel is the man to ask. He can help you out with what is best to run.
+1 for the stock rear end capacity. 3.73 is all i can find and the amsoil site has the ring gears listed. 09 3500 4wd 6.6l.
BAD idea on the engine oil. You need more viscosity.
Bigdaddydiesel can provide you a list of types of fluid and capacities from the AMSOIL website. Great stuff, you won't be sorry.
That's why I posted. I want to get the right oil the first time. The Amsoil literature say use HDD.
x3 on bigdaddydiesel he knows all.
5w-40 ain't a whole lot different from 10w-40.
I hope this helps, but let me know if you would also like to know how to save up to 25% off of retail prices with your order!!!
