What I was trying to ask is if I drain the transmission all fluid doesn't come out right
If I refill with transynd it would be mixed with dex 6 or what ever is in it now just wondered if that would be a problem as for posting thought posted in wrong spot sorry if I irritated you trying to learn how to do this

After you do a drain and fill on the trans I would run it for 100 miles then do it again and you should be fine.

For your Diffs, I recommend AMSOIL Severe Gear 75W-90. It is a full synthetic that is a highly shear stable and has a 100k drain interval. You will need 2 qts for the front and just over 3 for the back.

For the tranny I recommend AMSOIL Torque Drive. This gets debated a lot but Torque Drive and Castrol Transynd are the same fluids. You can do a drain and fill no problem. It will require another drain and fill after 50k miles.

If I can answer any questions or help with pricing, please give me a call.

And for your transfer case, if you were asking that as well, use Mobil 1 5w-30.
