ZF-5: Synthetic Dexron REQUIRED?!
I was under the OBS the other day, topping off before a trip, and noted that the plate on the side of the ZF says "Synthetic Dexron lubricant REQUIRED". Is it, really, or is it just an expensive suggestion? Is there any problem with substituting regular dino Dexron? Should I drain and refill if I do? (how compatible/ incompatible are they)
