      ROYAL PURPLE MAX 75w140 GEAR OIL IS A GOOD CHOICE FOR ANY MUSTANG OWNER WHO’S PICKING UP A NEAR SET OF REAR GEARS AND WANTS TO MAKE SURE THEY’RE PICKING UP A REPUTABLE, RELIABLE LUBRICATION. ONE QUART HERE RUNS AT JUST UNDER THE $20 MARK, AND THE APPLYING NEW GEAR OIL GETS ABOUT A 2 OUT OF 3 WRENCHES ON OUR DIFFICULTY METER.THERE ARE SOME FACTORS THAT COME INTO PLAY WHEN PICKING OUT YOUR NEW GEAR OIL. BUT IN ORDER TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT OIL, YOU’LL FIRST NEED TO UNDERSTAND THEIR GRADES BECAUSE IT’S CRUTIAL IN MAKIG SURE YOUR GEARS MESH AND TURN SMOOTHLY WITH PROPER LUBRICATION. THIS ONE HERE IS GRADED AT 75W140. THE GRADING SYSTEM IS MEASURING THE VISCOCITY OF THE OIL, WHICH IS A MEASURMENT OF THE THICKNESS OF A LIQUID. THE LARGER THE NUMBER, THE MORE VISCOUS, OR THICK THE OIL IS. YOU’D WANT A THICKER OIL IF YOU’RE CAR IS UNDER HEAVY WEIGHT OR LOAD, OR IF YOU’VE GOT A HEAVY FOOT AND REALLY BEAT ON IT. WHEN YOU UPGRADE GEARS, MOST OWNERS WOULD UPGRADE TO A THICKER GEAR OIL TO SOMETHING LIKE THIS 75W140, ALTHOUGH IT MAY VARY DEPENDING ON YOUR NEW GEAR MANUFACTURERS RECOMMENDATIONS, AND WHAT WOULD BE BEST FOR YOUR APPLICATION.THIS GEAR OIL FROM ROYAL PURAL IS A MULTI-GRADE, SINCE YOU’RE SEEING TWO NUMBERS THERE. THE 75W BEING THE FIRST, AND 140 THE SECOND GRADE. THE W AFTER 75 REFERS TO IT’S WINTER VISCOSITY RATING, MEANING IT’S CERTIFIED AND TESTED AT 32 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT. THE 140, WITHOUT THE W, REFERS TO IT’S HEAT RATING WITH A CERTIFIED TESTING AT 212 DEGREES. A MULTI-GRADE OIL LIKE THIS DOESN’T NEED TO BE CHANGED OUT FOR THE DIFFERENT CLIMATES IT MAY BE EXPOSED TO. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR THE MORE VISCOUS OIL LIKE THIS ONE HERE, IT COMES AT ABOUT $20 A QUART. YOU’LL WANT TO BE SURE TO LEARN HOW MANY QUARTS YOUR MUSTANG NEEDS, AS IT CAN DIFFER DEPENDING ON GEN AND PACKAGE.ANYTIME YOU’RE CHANGING GEARS, YOU’LL NEED NEW GEAR OIL. SO THE INSTALLATION IS PRETTY INVOLVED. APPLYING THE GEAR OIL ITSELF ISN’T HARD, BUT IT REALLY DEPENDS ON YOUR METHOD. IF YOU’RE NOT ACTUALLY CHANGING GEARS, BUT JUST NEED TO CHANGE OUT THE OIL, YOU CAN PICK UP AN GEAR OIL PUMP AND TUBING IN SOME CASES. EVEN WITH THAT IN MIND, THIS METHOD GET MORE OF A 1 OUT OF 3 WRENCHES ON OUR DIFFICULTY METER. HOWEVER, IF YOU’RE COMPLETELY CHANGING GEARS, THAT PROCESS IS A FULL 3 OUT OF 3 WRENCHES ON THE DIFFICULTY METER BECAUSE YOU’RE COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLING THE DIFFERENTIAL WHEN APPLING THE NEW OIL. WITH THAT SAID, INSTALL TIMES CAN VARY FROM 1 HOUR TO SEVERAL.THAT WRAPS THIS UP SO IF YOU’RE IN NEED OF NEW GEAR OIL AND YOU’RE LEANING ON THE SIDE OF A MORE VISOUS OR THICKER OIL, THE 75W140 ROYAL PURPLE MAX GEAR OIL CAN BE FOUND RIGHT HERE AT AMERICANMUSCLE.COM.

        Seems to work

        I assume this product is working well within my rear end as I just had the gears changed. Technically I wouldn't know unless I inspected the rear end after a few years. What I do know is that everyone knows, recognizes, and uses Royal Purple or just purple, and this is why I got it. (Shop and cost below are for the installation of my gears using this Royal Purple.)

        I run my car hard on the track and this oil never fails me. I see diff temps of 300 degrees, which is lower than what I used to get with other oils. No complaints!

      5 Top Rated Questions

      I am wondering ....why is it that it says I need 3 quarts of gear oil for my 8.8 rear end? But the Gear Kit only includes 2 quarts and friction modifier, which it also says comes in the Royal Purple Gear oil ? I just ordered 3 qts. and seems as I may end up with a spare!

      • As per the manual the 8.8 rear takes 4.25 pints so you will need the 3rd quart for that extra 4oz. Do not over fill or you will have fluid coming out of your axel seals sooner or later. Happy Motoring!

      2003 Mach 1. One of your answers for a different year said friction modifier was needed with Royal Purple 75W-140. Royal Purple description says otherwise. What's the right answer?!!

      • The royal purple fluid does come with the friction modifier already included in the fluid so extra would not be needed on those vehicles, however, if doing a full fluid replacement and reseal or an overhaul (removing the cover) it is required to soak the clutches in the friction modifier fluid separately from the royal purple fluid to ensure a full seat with the clutches.

      For a 2016 mustang gt performance package how many quarts do you need and do you need to add friction modifier

      • A 2015-2017 Mustang will require 2 quart bottles to fill, although not all of the gear oil will be used. You will also need 3-3.5oz of friction modifier.

      I have a 2011 mustang V6 The owner manual says it only takes 1.5L which is less than 2 quarts. Should I still get 3 quarts or would 2 quarts be enough? I just don’t want to buy more than I would need. Thank you

      I have a 2012 3.7 mustang with 3.31 gears, how much gear oil and friction modifier would I need for mine?

      • Three quarts of gear oil and one bottle of friction modifier are required for your use.
