Holden Rodeo 4x4 petrol 2001 V6 what is the lubricant quantities for the diffs, gear box & transfer case. Also what weights of oil


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

What lubricant is best in the gearbox


what sort of box --manual or automatic
most modern manuals run straight mineral 30 grade oil ( personally I run a 80 grade ep oil in the manual box as I consider it necessary to keep the gear teeth from touching each other under load where as ordinary oil has no stress properties to stop that condition) and auto boxes require the recommended oil as stated by the manufacturer
best talk with an accredited specialist shop for your make of transmission

I Need to top up my gearbox oil and I don't know where the filler part is on the gearbox.


Hello,
Are you referring to the front diff,rear diff or transfer case? On any of them gear boxes there is a fill plug and sometimes a drain plug. The fill plug is the plug closer to the top of the gear box. Just turn it out and wipe the metal shavings off it and fill the gearbox with the required gear lube until the lubricant just barely seeps out and that's the fill level. Plug the gear box again and your done. This is standard with gearboxes.
Regards, Tony

When its cold it seems to slip out of gear rather than change to 3rd. aafter its warm it seems to run like a top


It will be good to have the gear box oil changed to confirm that the oil within is overused.
If the oil change solves the issue , then have the oil changed once again after the car runs for few months so that the gear box lubrication comes good.
if not the gear box has to be opened to check for faulty links or notches.

What type of lubricant is required for the limited slip rearend and does it also require an additive?


A good gear lube, like an 80-90 weight gear oil, and yes, a limited slip also needs a limited slip additive. This comes in a little bottle, add it first, then the other gear oil.

What is the capacity of the transfer case and exactly what fluid do i use


GM Full-Size Trucks 1980-1987 Repair Guide

Transfer Case - FLUID RECOMMENDATIONS
The type of lubricant used in the transfer case varies with model year and type of transfer case. Refer to the list below for the type that applies to your truck.

1980
Conventional transfer cases require SAE 80W or SAE 80W-90 GL-5 gear lubricant.
Full time systems use SAE 10W-30 or 10W-40 engine oil.
1981
Conventional transfer cases require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.
1982-85
All transfer cases require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.
1986-87
All transfer cases except the K30/35 series require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.

For fluid recommendations for the K30/35 transfer cases refer to the owner's manual.
LEVEL CHECKS

fb6e8b4.jpg
Fig. Model 208 Transfer Case

Check the four wheel drive transfer case lubricant level every 4 months or 6,000 miles.
  1. With the truck parked on a level surface and the parking brake firmly applied, remove the filler plug from the rear of the transfer case (behind the transmission). Be careful not to take out the drain plug at the bottom.
  2. If lubricant trickles out, there is enough. If not, carefully insert a finger and check that the level is up to the edge of the hole, EXCEPT in full time four wheel drive cases should be 1 /2 in. below the hole.
Lubricant may be added, if necessary, with a funnel and tube, or a squeeze bulb.



DRAIN AND REFILL
Part Time Systems
No intervals are specified for changing transfer case lubricant, but it is a good idea for trucks that are worked hard or driven in deep water.
  1. With the transfer case warmed up, park on a level surface and apply the parking brake.
  2. Slide a pan of a least 6 pts. capacity under the case drain plug.
  3. Remove the filler plug from the rear of the transfer case (behind the transmission). Remove the drain plug from the bottom.
  4. Wipe the area clean and replace the drain plug.
  5. Add lubricant with a suction gun or squeeze bulb. Conventional transfer cases require SAE 80W-90 GL-5 Gear Lubricant.
  6. When the lubricant level is up to the bottom of the filler hole, replace the plug.
Full Time Four Wheel Drive
The full time system requires oil changes at regular intervals, according to the amount and type of work done by the unit. Trucks used for normal on-off road work should have the transfer case oil changed at 24,000 mile intervals. When used for heavy duty work, trailer towing, snowplowing, and the like, the interval should be halved to 12,000 miles. If the truck is exposed to extremely dusty or muddy conditions, the oil should be changed at 1,000 mile intervals.
The transfer case oil must be hot before changing. Drive the truck until the engine has reached normal operating temperature, and park on a level surface.
  1. Slide a pan of at least 8 pts. capacity under the case drain plug.
  2. Remove the filler plug.
  3. Remove the lowest bolt from the front output shaft rear bearing retainer cover, and allow the lubricant to drain. Be careful; the oil will be hot. There may be a drain plug. If so, remove that instead.
  4. Remove the six bolts on the left (driver's) side of the case which secure to P.T.O. (power take-off) cover. Remove this cover and allow the lubricant to drain out.
  5. Remove the speedometer driven gear from the upper left rear corner of the case.
  6. Use a suction gun to remove as much lubricant as possible from the case cover location and the speedometer gear location.
  7. Install the speedometer driven gear, the P.T.O. cover, and the lowest bolt or drain plug.
  8. Add approximately seven pints of oil through the filler plug opening. The proper oil to use is 10W-30 or 10W-40 engine oil.
  9. Check the fluid level and add sufficient oil to raise the level to 1 /2 in. below the filler plug opening. Replace the plug, and wipe the surfaces of the case and skid plate to remove any excess oil. Drive the truck and check for leaks.

I really hope help ypou woth this (remember rated this help) Good luck.
