diff oil

Asked by Feb 03, 2015 at 07:20 PM about the Toyota Land Cruiser

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed the oil in the front Differential. It was as thick as pea soup and black. Is this just
very dirty oil? or has something been added to make it thick and dirty looking?

1 Answer

2,065

Depending on year, it's 75+ weight oil. It's thick! The dirty part is just from age.
