Hey guys,

Changing everything on the car due to new engine going in and tbh need some help. Can anyone recommend what:

Engine oil I need and how much?
Gearbox oil (AZ6) and how much?
Engine coolant?
Power steering? I assume just any universal stuff will do?
Diff oil, unsure if LSD or not as the car was converted in Japan.

I think thats it!

All help appreciated :)

5w30 fully sync engine oil and get a new genuine filter better oil flow than spurious ones
75w 80 or 75w85 in the gear box
75w90 in the diff I find the best
coolant get the pre mixed stuff but do a rad flush first and changer the water pump if it wasn't already done
Power steering is just normal stuff lad but I found auto gearbox oil feels alot better and the pumps sound a little quieter with it but its really up to u

Engine will take 4.5 liters roughly
gearbox will take 2 to 2.5 liters
diff only takes 1 ltr
coolant takes about 5 ltr
power steering I think takes 1.5 liters ish

There is no "about" or "roughly". Oil I would use Motul X-Clean+ 5w30 or Motul 300V 5w30, gearbox and diff motul gear 300 75w90, toyota red coolant.

Good luck!

What banan1984 said!

3SGE takes 5.1L - 5W30 or 10W30
6MT 2L - 75W90 GL4
Diff 1L - 75W90 or 75W140 GL5 with LSD

+1 for Motul

The roughly and about is just for buying all the fluids u need there is markers on everything dipstick for engine you can't over fill diff or gearbox unless u try very hard as when there full it leaks out coolant can only be overfull from the expansion bottle but first drive will piss out most extra fluid
