Gear oil

The gear oil works like it should. The way my car drives has not changed, but now I just know my car is running smooth. Also when filling make sure you have a hand pump.

For 6th gen with Torsen 3.73 the owners manual list 1.5 liters and like 3 oz of friction modifier as capacity. Why are 3 quarts needed?


Helpful (1)
  • Hello! From my understanding it does vary slightly, but its about 2 quarts of gear oil and a bottle of friction modifier which is about 4 oz and you should be good.

    Ryan H

On the bottle and in the part description it states - Friction modifiers included, no additional additives are necessary. Is the Ford modifier really required?


Helpful (0)
  • If you are changing gears or even adding new gear oil, it is always a good idea to add friction modifier to help the performance of the gears.


going to change my diff to a lsd with 4.10 gears, i have an 08 v6 wondering what the difference between the 75w90 75w140 gear oil which would be recommended


Helpful (0)
  • The differences in the Royal Purple Max Gear Gear Oil, 75w90 and 75w140 would be the viscosity of the oil throughout a temperature range. For moderate driving applications, 75w90 would be best, however, if the vehicle is driven in more extreme driving conditions, the 75w140 would be best for that application. If you are using the vehicle for a particular application, please give us a call and we would be happy to recommend a weight which would be best suitable for your application.


How good will this work for the MT82 transmissions.

  • This Royal Purple Max Gear 75w90 Gear Oil is meant for your rear differential, and should NOT be used in your transmission.


7.5? 3 quarts are needed for the 8.8 but what about us v6ers. i'd get three to be safe but if i could save an extra 17 bucks that would be nice too. what do you think?


Helpful (0)
  • yes will need 3 the differance in size does not reduce capacity by one quart

    Must use!

    Swapped to a set of 4.10 gears on my Cobra and used this to refill the diff housing. Was easy to add and haven't had any gear whine or anything. A great product from Royal Purple, i use it for all my fluids in my Cobra.

    Good Gear Oil

    I put this in the 8.8 rear of my 98 GT. Right away I noticed a quieter and smoother ride, but not much in the way of performance gains. The only tricky part was getting the new oil into the diff. It was hard to get the bottle lined up to pour it in because of the mufflers and the driveshaft. But other than that, it was a good choice for the price.

    it works like Jesus, 05 Mustang GT

    The shop that installed my 4.10 Gears gave me a skeptical look when I told them to use this stuff instead of their regular oil, he made it seem like it doesn't make a difference. But on the same conversation he was warning me he has installed hundreds of rear gears on mustangs and most of them have a weird hum that has been rectified with the newer Mustangs, so he warned me some people don't like it. When I got my car back there was no humming or any of the other issues he warned me about, so like Jesus, if you believe it works then it works.

    Good product but 75w-90 wrong for 2002 Mustangs with 8.8 rear end

    Purchased 75w-90 based on American Muscle web page stating it was the correct fluid. Order was on the way before I checked owner's manual. Ford specs 75w-140 for the 02 Stang and the data tag on the differential cover says "Use only 75w-140". Called American Muscle they said the 90 weight would be OK. Could have chanced it, but was able to exchange the 90 for 140 weight at a local retailer at no cost. Put in the specified 75w-140 and all is good. Be aware that you need to drop the sway bar to reinstall the cover without making a mess of silicone gasket sealant. Royal Purple products are great

    Good stuff

    Works as it should. Fluid is not as viscous as I had imagined and this is good because clean up was easy. Took about 2 bottles to fill up my 7.5'' differential (98 V6).I recommend you use "Right Stuff" gasket maker for sealing the differential cover.

    Smooth running!

    I just changed the diff fluid today. I did it at the same time as the tranny fluid. I dont have any scientific results but I can say there is minimal resistance in the drive train. I run all royal purple and I feel confident that wont have any fluid related problems. I changed it at 70k and the old fluid seemed like it would be good till 100k. I saw 3 different numbers from diff fluid intervals so I went with the shortest one.

    Good Stuff

    I was looking for this gear oil at my local auto motive shops and they where all asking this really crazy prices for this stuff. I usually make some purchases through American but never thought they carried gear oil. When I checked I was amazed at the price. I recently had 3.73 gears put on my car with the Royal Purple Gear Oil and could not be happier.

    Good oil, looks like I bought mine just in time before the price jump. I wouldn\'t call it a jump really, I was surprised to get such a deal once I saw it going for 11 to 12 bucks a bottle at an O\'reilleys auto parts store. ;)
