I am changing my rear differential fluid. I believe the correct fluid is 75W-90 for the rear. My question is, does the front differential share fluid with the transmission or does it need a different fluid? If so what fluid?

Hello,

On this vehicle the book actually calls for 75W-85 gear oil for both front and rear differentials.

The front differential capacity is 0.6 liter and the rear 1.2 liter.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.
