ALL the RX-8's Series 1 or 2 use the same Oil's, BUT...

The Oil for the Diff and Transmission is NOT the same, one is GL4 and the other is GL5.
MT-90 GL4 75W90 for Transmission.
75W90 GL5 High Performance Gear Oil for Differential.

Tip

Where do I put my transmission fluid in an automatic transmission/Automatic...


Most, if not all vehicles require the fluid in an automatic transmission, or automatic gearbox, to be added through the dipstick tube (the tube where the fluid level is checked from).
It more often than not requires the use of a small funnel. Most service station attendants are trained in this procedure.
Always use the fluid type recommended by the manufacturer, and fill to the proper level. Since the fluid is added through the dipstick tube it may take some time to get an accurate reading, due to the residue left by the new fluid.
Transmissions and Gearboxes give a more accurate reading after the vehicle is warm, or has been running/driven for at least fifteen minutes.

If this has been of any assistance, kindly rate it accordingly. Thank you.

Checking automatic transmission fluid

The 5R55N transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.

Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for

fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid.

However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not

working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you

notice some sign of fluid leakage.

Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.

How do you know when you need to change your transmission fluid in my 2002 ford explorer


This is in the owners manual pages 269 and 270. TRANSMISSION FLUID
Checking automatic transmission fluid (if equipped)
The automatic transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.
Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid. However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you notice some sign of fluid leakage.
Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.
Do not use supplemental transmission fluid additives, treatments or cleaning agents. The use of these materials may affect transmission operation and result in damage to internal transmission components. Checking and adding manual transmission fluid (if equipped)
1. Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface or level hoist.
2. Clean the filler plug or dirt and debris.
3. Remove the filler plug and inspect the fluid level.
4. Fluid level should be at bottom of the opening.
5. Add enough fluid through the filler opening so that the fluid level is at the bottom of the opening.
6. Install and tighten the fill plug securely.
Use only fluid that meets Ford specifications. Refer to the Lubricant Specifications in this chapter.

My car has a new clutch but the shifting feels stiff. Not the clutch but the actual shifter. Is this perhaps a fluid problem? If so where do I look to check it and what kind of fluid would i add?


You may be low on transmission fluid. When your fluid is low or is old it makes the shifting a little rough. It can cause grinding or just make it hard to shift from gear to gear. I would get the fluid checked to see if it is low. You need to consult an owners manual to find out what kind of fluid it requires. There are many different weights and types and if you use the wrong one you can damage seals on your transmission.

My 2005 solara convertable just turned 43K. I don't have a scheduled maintenance guide. what kinds of maintenance, if any, is there to be done?


nothing major to be done, only thing i could recommend is a transmission fluid flush. this may be early by the book, but these cars tend to burn up the fluid quickly.

How do you put transmission fluid in the car. I replaced my radiator and lost transmission fluid and need to replace it.


Big Problem you may not be aware that Suzuki uses special trans fluid, needs to be silica based for import cars. The Transmission is sealed and requires no maintenance for 100,000 miles, and has a 7 year 100k warranty. If you add the wrong fluid, it will mix with and foul up the good fluid causing sticky, sluggish response from the transmission. This would void the warranty, How did you even loose fluid?
