Hey mate,

Manual trans & differential oils is filld on the front of the driveshaft housing (24mm)as the drain plugs (24mm) are located in the rear :unsure: dont worry you'lle find it.

Power steering is simply filled in the reservoir

There are tonnes of threads in regards to 'what oils is best an all'

I personally use redline oils foo all my lubrication & hydraulics as these have proven very reliable to me when i raced,the gearbox n Diff uses the lightweight shockproof oil (Blue) which (I think) OE requests 75w90 & the shockproff is rated at 75w140 (this means it has a higher load rating)

Power steering fluid is normally Dexron 3 but I used the redline option because at the time I was buying this at cost & was well looked after.FYI a quart would cost around retail $26.00 so it is expensive but I believe in this product & its never let me down (touch wood) :unsure:

Hope this helps
