    Howdy everyone, my question is, if i replace the transmission and rear end fluid with Synthetic lube would it be wise to change the motor oil to synthetic as well or can I still use regular ol oil? Reason is because synthetic oil is more expensive I dont have the money quite yet. What are your suggestions? Thank you!

    Synthetic Oil

    I changed the old oil out of my rear and transmission. I noticed the difference at the first fillup. Better gas mileage was apparent. The speedometer is worn out and could not tell exactly how much but a lot better. I was so impressed that I changed the motor oil to synthetic. Orilleys now have their own brand of synthetic oil that is a little better price.

    You can use whatever you can afford in the en gine but make sure it's Diesel rated .

    Synthetic oils will make it work better and last longer , you'll notice the difference but remember to hot change them too .
