    Ok, I dont have a manual and I am needing to change my rear differential fluid. I have a 2003 Prerunner that is the TRD SR5 Package with the 3.4L motor and automatic trans. What kind of differential fluid do I need? I have read GL-5 80W-90, 75W-90 and some say with the limited slip additive and some say it isnt needed. What does the manual call for and from what I have read I will need 3 quarts. Is this true or will I need more?

    Thanks

    Thanks. I saw that post but it doesn't really specify the year. Maybe I am not reading it properly plus the Tacoma in the picture looks like the second generation. I know how to do it I just want to get the right oil.
