I accidentally drained the rear gear case, or I guess it’s called the transmission oil. When I drained this I noticed the magnet on the plug had a decent amount of metal on it. I drained the front and it looked exactly the same. I wanted to know if this is pretty normal? And if it is normal why is the recommended fluid change for these 100hrs? With this much metal I would think changing it in the 1st 25hrs would be a better choice.
Heres a video…
As far as fluid to put back in it says Transmission is “AGL gearcase lube and tranny fluid” & front gear case is “Demand Drive Fluid”. Can I get this at Autozone or are these dealer fluids?
As far as the engine oil I’m running the Rotella T6 5w-40 because I run it in all my diesel trucks and 4 wheelers and I always have it on hand.
