    2013 taco.a reg cab 4x4 manual 2.7l
    None
    Hi, I just bought a 2013 Tacoma reg cab. Manual trans. 2.7l 4x4 with 143000 miles.
    I want.to change out all the fluids, owners manual call for 75w 85 and 75w90 for differentials transfer case and manual trans fluid. Can I just use Mobil 1 75w 90 for all applications, and make it easy?
    From what I'm reading the limited slip additives shouldn't matter....Thanks

    I would closely check the spec on the manual transmission fluid for a 2nd gen. I originally thought on a third gen I could use all one fluid, but then in doing research found that there is a reason Toyota calls for different manual transmission fluid. I ended up using Redline MT90, which meets the spec for a third gen. The main issue is that regular gear oil can deteriorate the synchros in the transmission...so do some research and don't rush into changing the fluids if you aren't 100% sure what will be "safe" to use.

    Owners manual call for 75w90 in manual transmission and transfer case....only would be using 75w90 in differentials instead of 75w85.

    The wt difference on the high side is a non issue

    What is important is making sure it's the right GL rating.

    The trans may be GL4 with the diffs being GL5

    GL4 is a touch trickier to find.
