    The manual calls for 75w-90 GL3 (GL4) gear oil.

    I'm on a road trip and having issues with my transmission sticking in gear. The local dealer couldn't duplicate the issue since it takes hours on the highway to start acting up.

    I'm thinking of swapping out the fluid before I continue on my trip, but wanted to make sure I use the right stuff. Does it matter whether it limited slip stuff or not?

    Has anyone changed theirs yet?

    I run MT or MTL in all of my vehicles. It's great, especially in cold weather.
