Does your Mitsubishi L300 make a strange noise? Need wheel alignment specs?

L300 Manual Transmission and Transfer Case Fluid

Post by Crankshaft Culture » Sun Jul 30, 2017 4:16 pm

Originally, I saw a thread here that stated the spec for the manual transmission and transfer case fluid is 75w85. Unfortunately, I can't find it anywhere locally. However, while looking through a service manual, I see it says "75W-85W or 75W-90* conforming to API GL-4"

The asterisk went to a footnote saying "Indicates vehicles for europe."

Well that's odd. So can we or can we not use 75w90 in our Delica L300s?

The date on the bottom of the service manual said 1993, for what it's worth.

Anyone using 75w90 instead of 75w85?
