Here is a little sheet I put together for the Dmax fluids and filters.

Dmax Capacities and other info.


Your Duramax will take 10 qts (2.5 gal) of oil in the engine with the filter change. With dual bypass it will take 11.5 qts. Recommended oil for pre DPF trucks is 15W-40. The Newer 2007.5 and up trucks that have a DPF need the CJ-4 rated oil which is 5W-40

The Allison transmission will take 7.4 qts (2 gal) for a pan drain with the spin on filter change. Get 5 gal if you are doing a flush to get the oil into the torque converter. For the Allison you want the Torque Drive ATF if you are going to use the Amsoil.

The rear diff will take 4 qts of 75W-90 gear oil with the stock cover. If it’s an aftermarket such as the Mag-Hytec it will take 7.5 qts. If you are doing a lot of towing or hauling heavy loads I recommend you use 75W-110 in the rear diff.
The Amsoil Product for this is Severe Gear oil.

If you have 4wd:

The Front diff will take 2 qts 75W-90

The transfer case will take 2 qts of either ATF or 5W-30 synthetic motor oil depending on which way you want to go. If you use the over fill method through the speed sensor it will take 3 qts.

There is nothing really special except with the Trans spin on filter. There is a magnet on the top of the filter that will need to be cleaned real well and put back on top of the new filter before installing it. Also there is a magnetic drain plug in the front diff that needs to be cleaned it will have shavings on it.

On the fuel filter make sure you don’t cross thread the plastic WIF sensor. It’s easiest to take out the inner fender well on the pass side to get at the fuel filter its 8 plastic clips.
