What type of fluid should I use ine the front differential on a 2006 F-150.

Asked by Jan 10, 2013 at 08:26 PM about the 2006 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew Styleside LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The owner's manual and all auto part stores say use 80w-90.  But the parts guys and the ford dealership say its supposed to be 75w-140.  Which should I use?

I think both would be OK but I would go with the dealership recommendation. They should be more aware of recent changes than a parts store clerk.

both will work fine but 75-140 is more expensive its synthetic. parts guy wants to make more money. owners manual is more reliable than someone who gets paid commission.
