Maintenance questions.

I'm going to switch my sig truck over to amsoil this week. I'm still new to these trucks so I have a couple questions. How much fluid to each of these take...

Rear axle
Front axle (Dana 50)
t-case
Trans

Also what kind of power steering fluid do these trucks take?

95 F-250 ECLB

6637 air intake, 3 inch dp to 4 inch exhaust, EBPV delete, ccv mod, glowshift gauges ( fuel pressure, boost, trans temp, pyrometer ) Dp tuner ( no start, stock, 80hp econo, 60hp tow)

Cobra 29 classic w/nightwatch, Wilson 1000 magnet mount, weather guard backrack, code 3 lightbar.

Re: Maintenance questions.

I know the trans is about 7 or 8 quarts.

Re: Maintenance questions.

if your have a converter drain, I do on my 97, then it will hold a lot more tranny fluid after you drain it, can't remember but think it was in the 17-18 qrt range after pan drop and converter drain. P/S just use atf.
Also might mention that if you can find Schaeffers fluids you might think about them instead of amsoil.

Re: Maintenance questions.

Cost mostly, but they offer great products for less money cause they don't sponsor things (like nascars) and aren't available at parts houses. If you do some research on here for their name you'll find lots of good stuff. Their fuel treatments too. I've been using their products now for a couple years and I go 10k on oil changes now and they sample my oil for free everytime to make sure everything is A OK. I was using Rotella with the Lucus additive and my truck would get hard to start after about 4K so I would just change the oil. Never have any starting issues with Schaeffers, even at 10K.

Re: Maintenance questions.

It's worth the money for Schaeffers IMO, or you could go with Valvoline 5W40 syn (extreme blue) a lot of guys on here like it and it's easier to find.

Re: Maintenance questions.

Its much better changing out the engine oil at 3-4k than longer Syn's or not..

We only carry the BEST parts and never compromise just to get a sale.

Dealer for: Full Force, Tymar, BTS, Icon, Pure Performance, TW tunes, just to name a few.

Normally I would agree, but I only go that far because I get my oil sampled and know that it isn't shearing or contaminated or losing it's important additives, so if it's like brand new then why would I dump it for new?
