Add tranny fluid to the dipstick tube. You need a small funnel. DO NOT overfill it. Add ONE HALF PINT at a time.


Oil goes into the top of the motor. There is a big cap there. It should say engine oil



when do I get my kisses?

Looks like you have a Cummins 8.3 engine so you need 15w40 motor oil. On the top of the valve cover is a cap for oil. I don't know what transmission you have but if it is a Allison it needs Allison approved transmission fluid.

Can i use 5W 40 i just bought a bottle of it i can return it but id rather use it if i can. I bought a 1gallon bottle of shell rotella T6 SAW 5W-40
It said on the bottle it was suitable for heavy duty diesel engine oil with triple protection plus.

I don't know. My book just shows 15w40. Dexron 3 is good for the transmission.

O'Reilly part # for the trans oil D-1 Dexron III-H/Mercon. It has an Allison C-4 rating.
