Factory oil looks like it's regular GL5 80-90 but the dealer says you must use their oil to stay in warranty......

Does anyone here know more about the Mdrive/iShift ?

This would be illegal as a violation of the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act of 1975.

According to the first google result, the I-Shift fluid is actually a 75W-80, but you can use...

So this is a Volvo truck right?

Not some AWD thing with a diff and t case that needs changed?

None of these brand names look familiar to me. Menards carries Shell, but I don't think it's the GSX and Spirax S6 variety. I've never seen Castrol heavy duty before either.

Knowing the model and year would help tremendously

Scars remind us of where we have been, but do not have to dictate where we are going.
