Not my rig and not a differential, but a gearbox on a 2005 Acura RSX Type S. 123k on original fluid, changed it out with 1.5 quarts of Acura MTF. This past Monday.

The last rear diff I did was my CR-V at 60k last summer. Now I'm at 97k and will change it again at 100k. The Pilot will be changed at 40k.

Out: Factory fill (probably)
In: 3 qts. Valvoline High-Performance 80W-90 gear oil (white bottle) and new drain and fill plugs.

Got my rear diff fluid changed at Nissan exactly a month and 750 miles ago. Will change (hopefully myself this time) at 150k, probably a synthetic this time too.

Tomorrow assuming nobody bugs me...
93 Ranger 4x4 Rear diff only
2.5 qts of Valvoline high perf 80w-90.
4oz of Redline friction modifier.

Hasn't been done in.. a very long time. Last time was with same gear oil, except motorcraft friction modifier and both axles.
Only used 4x4 twice, totalling around 30 miles at most.
Gonna leave the front diff alone this time.

AND.. gonna try and change out the transfer case fluid too. That hasn't been done in oh.. a decade.

2002 VW Jetta. The differential/final drive and automatic transmission do not share the same fluid. There is no drain plug for the differential so had to pump it out.

out: factory fill gear oil
in: Royal Purple Max-Gear 75W-90, took about 0.8 quart.
