manual transmission --- 80w-90 for the gearbox and transfer case
diff is 80-90 oep if a straight diff and different if a limited slip diff gear box is around the 2.5 ltrs as is the diff each
LiSiD oil can be used in LiSiD diffs and straight diffs but straight oil cannot be used in lisid diffs
the transfer case uses the same as the box but the quantity you will have to check in the lubrication section of the user manual
many user manuals recommend a lighter straight oil for transfer cases and boxes ( 30 straight oil) but I find that the light oil promotes bearing wear and gear problems as the oil squeezes out under load
at this point I would suggest that he takes it to an accredited service shop or a shop that has experience with the make of vehicle
if it is a front wheel drive vehicle then the gear box is on the end of the motor (LHS) and is driven by a chain from the bell housing back down and into the gear box
You forgot to say if manual or auto but with all the information that you have supplied , A workshop manual would be a good starting point if your dad wants to tinker with the vehicle
some had dip stick to check and fill from which is in middle of engine and trans at front (where engine joins trans) black plastic lock over tang, engine dip stick is yellow. other model transmissions had a filler bolt hole which is in left side of gear box right next to where left drive shaft goes into gearbox even though its auto. some manual boxes had this same filler plug location and even on right side of box next to right drive shaft.
I Would Say It Means Automatic Transmission Fluid Is Hot ,So Check Its Level There should Be a Dip Stick For This If Not Then i Would Think something Is Wrong in The Gear box Or The Gearbox Oil Cooler If Fitted Could be An Integral Part Of The Radiator.
There are two types of gear oil per say in a car/truck. Did you mean the engine oil or oil for the axle? Either way the engine oil is in the manual for the car, and for an axle you want at least an 80-90w oil.
try checking the fluid level in the gearbox,rodeo dont have a dipstick so u have to undo the plug on the side of the gearbox just like a manual gearbox.if the oil is really low i suggest doing a full service on the gearbox,change the oil and filter is ideal for better results.
