I have a 99 TJ with a 5-speed manual tranny. I need to know which oil do you guyz normally put in the the 4x4 gear (the gear with 4H, 4L etc). My service station put in a red coloured thin consistency gear oil (for automatic vehicles) called Dexron 3. My mechanic told me it needs a manual tranny gear oil which is of thicker consistency and yellowish in colour (consistency just a bit thinner than honey). The Jeep
dealer here in Dubai told me the consistency will be thin like juice and yellowish in colour. Now I am totally confused.
Also, how many liters of this stuff would go into the 4x4 gear. I know there is a differnece between the differential oil and the 4x4 gear oil.
Would really really really appreciate someone's insights here. I thought mechanics and serviuce stations would know this kind of stuff!
