This weekend I did a full synthetic oil change on my Ranger. It got me thinking, what other fluids should I change? I am in the area of 200 hours.

Please list what you change, what you use and how much is needed.

It's a good idea to change it all, front axle, transmission and rear axle.

I change the front axle with every oil change because it doesn't contain much fluid, my change is usually a once a year thing for my hours and the change for me is easy. For the front axle I use Polaris Demand Drive Fluid, this is the only factory fluid I use.

For the transmission I use Amsoil Chaincase Fluid, AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & Gear Oil . It performs very well and would be the recommended fluid for your transmission as well. If you've never changed your transmission fluid you should definitely expect a very furry magnet on the drain plug. It's normal, but one of the reasons you change fluid.

For the rear axle I use Amsoil Severe Gear 75W-110, AMSOIL Severe Gear® 75W-110 . For this you can really use any 75W-90 or 80W-90 GL5 gear lube that you would like. The Polaris fluid is right in the range of the fluids I mentioned in viscosity and is an extreme pressure lubricant.

By this time, it's probably a good idea to change the antifreeze as well. Yours holds a couple quarts so a gallon of premix is cheap insurance.

When the weather cools down I'm going to pull my Ranger into my garage and do a flush of the brake fluid. All my vehicles that get about every two years and they are due for it. So I"ll do the Ranger the same day.

Thank you for this information. I will tackle all these one day to get a fresh start for all of the fluids.
