New trans pan going on next week, what oil should I use?

Well I'm just at 58K miles on my 03 and I'm bringing it to the dealer next week to have a PML trans pan put on, the fluid changed/flushed, trans filter changed, and both differential fluids changed. Should I just let them put the factory Mercon SP in? Or should I get some amsoil and bring it there?

Also, they are checking my PCM/TCM for updates and going to recalibrate my tire size. I'm pretty sure I'm either just out of warrenty or at the brink of it going out. Is there anything else I should have them check for or do?

After that, I'm putting the XCal3 on

personally i would go with amsoil in the tranny i dont realy have much of a preference for the diffs but if amsoil has something for them then i would probably run it.

well maybe if you have been on aim lately, I could have asked you last week haha

Last night I bought 4 quarts of Mobil 1 75w-140 for the rear diff, 4 quarts of Mobil 1 75w-90 for the front diff, and 6 quarts of Mobil 1 ATF for the transfer case and power steering (going to have that flushed also). I'm going to let them put the Mercon SP in the tranny because it is synthetic.

I'll switch over to all amsoil when I end up doing a rear locker and some aftermarket covers.

This 60K service is costing me almost $400 from the dealer!!!

yah sorry about that bud.... moved to my new place and my interenet is very flaky.. it hasnt been up all day today and for some reason is working now

if you can have them save some of each oil so you can get it tested... that way you know whats really going on with your engine.... if you need some kits i can get you the Amsoil ones
