DO NOT use automatic transmission fluid (ATF) - that fluid is NOT compatible with the oil that's in there now, and it may even wreck your seals. If John Deere wants you to use regular ol' motor oil (which is part and parcel of their specification), that's what you should use. Depending upon your climate, you may need 10W30 or you may be able to get by just ...

SE was from way back (circa 1979), so any off the shelf oil should be well ahead of that at a minimum. The current standard is SN. Since I would assume you will not be changing this oil very often, I would highly suggest you purchase some thing like Royal Purple or some other high grade synthetic engine oil. I know it's a little expensive, but considering ...

The oil bottle will state what API classifications it meets. You need SAE 10w30 that lists one of those classifications on the bottle. Any standard 10w30 motor oil should have it. Just check for it when you buy the oil.

I've got two strong suspicions. First is the pinion angle Paulster2 calls out - it's common with a shackle lift or SOA lift that the axle gets rolled so the rear driveshaft won't need replacing (too short with the lift). That's hellish on u-joints. if the transfer case end doesn't start with a CV joint, you simply cannot get away with an ordinary u-joint at ...

I think there are a lot of things going on here, so I'm not sure there's a "right" answer (for others who visit this thread). For my particular case, I think it ended up being the following things: Axle bearing going bad (it finally completely destroyed itself on a trail) Wheel noise (perhaps imbalanced, maybe overinflated, etc.) Other things I've yet to ...

All modern vehicles require a scan when it comes to fault finding. Even as a routine part of its service a scan should be included. Your vehicles idling is controlled by APP- accelerator pedal position switch, IAC- idle air control and the ECT- engine temperature sensor. The engines RPM is also increased by a pressure sensor in your AirCon system. The engine ...

Yes in theory it could be done. But getting the mechanical components to work would be difficult and probably result in an awkward and bulky addition to your car. I suspect the end result would be an expensive and unreliable disappointment. It would probably be easier to change the entire gearbox for automatic or a sequential box than try and adapt a ...
