what oil shoul i put in my std s15 diff
I've got motul Gear300 in my box tooI use motul gear300 for my gearbox. Cant be happier with what the car originally came with. Now going to try gear300 on my lsd.
To NicelyHelical Diff
The workshop manual recommends Helical diff oil be changed every 40000 km/24 miles or every 24 months. I says the Viscous oil just needs inspecting regularly, but I'd recommend the same as the Helical.
1.8 litres (overfilling to 2 litres from the top will give a smoother gear change)
The manual also says to inspect and change if necessary for the gearbox. I'd say change at the same time as the diff
Just get a Nissan filter Its fairly cheap and good.
The drain plug key is 13mm
That's not the case for aftermarket diffs.The diff oil should really be slightly thicker than the gearbox.
