Re: Fluid change and type
My older 2000 Ranger , I changed the trans fluid every 35000 miles , some wait longer but I like to always keep the fluids newer . My 1500 Ram , I used the Synthetic and had great luck as I logged in over 185 000 miles and had some noise coming out of it for a while but as a commuter it lasted a long time . My new Ranger , I have not checked the maintainance schedule but I think its around 50 K . As always fluids should be changed regularly depending on your driving , slow and hard or on the highway . Mine is 90 percent highway so every month I change the oil , but around 5 or 6 months I do everything , tranny , engine , and rear end . I am a synthetic lover as I have had a lot of good luck with it . My wifes Honda , I change her oil , say every 2 to 3 months , sometimes a little longer , as she does an 11 mile a day commute .
Hope this helps ....
