V Drive - Transition to Synthetic?

Recommended Posts

Soon2BV

I had trouble finding non-synthetic Dextron Transmission fluid, so i bought the synthetic.

What do i need to do to change over on my gearbox and v-drive? Can i just do a fluid change, or do i need to do a change and then do another change?

I would've thought it to be the other way, hard to find synthetic...

You will be fine with one change.

You are good with the mix. Also it doesn't hurt to switch back and forth. Same goes with motor oil. Anyone telling you that you can't switch from synthetic to conventional is trying to upset you.

You didn't say which version of Dexron you went with...I am on year 3 with synthetic Dexron VI even though my transmission originally specified Dexron III. Dexron VI is backwards compatible with Dexron III and offers plenty of reasons to "upgrade."
