What grade / weight of oil do I put in the transfer box?

I have 75W90 and 80W90 Castrol readily available, and ATF fluid for the reservoir in the boot - but surely I dont put ATF fluid in the box itself do I? :runaway:

Have done a search (non-conclusive) and looked at the workshop manual (Nissanmatic Fluid D, not much help cos I dont know what that is lol)

Help me please :bawling:

Like Philip said, Dextron 3 ATF fluid. Most ATF fluids meet that STD, just look on the bottle..

Is this both the Transfer and Attessa fluid you guys are referring to?

I was surprised the transfer box takes dextron 111.
As it is a wet multiplate clutch pack, similar to most motor bike clutches.
Must have something to do with the friction material or the way it works ie not much slipping goes on as its on or off.

As in you put this in the transfer box itself - ATF fluid (the red power steering stuff) IN THE TRANSFER BOX????

Yes jeff.

Auto boxes have clutches like the transfer box, hence using ATF fluid.

Use CASTROL TRANS MAX in the transfer case and REDLINE light/ultra light in
the gearbox.

fill it up till it comes out of the fill hole

just to add this to thread, the easiest combination of oils is to use is silkolene syntran for front and rear diffs and gearbox its perfect for all 3. i used amsoil dextron III ATF for transfer as reccomended by opie.
