Axle oil change help.
 
Hey JGers

My 05 WK 4WD needs front and rear axle oil change. I know it takes SAE 75W-140 Synthetic. The question is how much does it takes for each axle and what else besides the the oil do I need. Thanks for your help. :)

How often do you have to change that Fabs?

Every 30K.. Normally, I'll take to the dealer, but now, they want $240 + Tax per axle.. FTS!!!

About 2 bottles for each axle and don't forget the friction modifier if you have var-loc axles.

I believe you fill it until it is full.. not sure how many quarts that is. You'll need one of those container+pump combos... can probably be had from WalMart or an auto parts store.

Fill it until it is dripping out of the hole like Mon said. That's the proper way. And LOL at the $240+tax. Screw that you can do mostly everything by yourself.

What should I get C200F or C200FE, same goes for C213R or C213RE? How do I know if I have a var-loc? Thanks

Walmart sells the siphon pump for under 10 bucks needed to suck the old oil out. It doesnt take alot of oil, I think one of those bottles per each was all I used, though I bought two each just in case and have them for next time. Make sure the car is level when you are filling them up, I drive the front up ron amps and have it on jack stands in the rear to make it level. Should do the transfer case while your at it too.

I think Vari-Lock you have to add extra.
