5w30 for engine oil. Dexron 3 for transmission fluid on an automatic.


NO!!!! do not do this, oil is oil, transmission fluid is transmission fluid, and antifreeze is antifreeze, do not mix any of these, it can perminately damage your engine.


Yes you use engine oil in all cars regardless of transmission.


They are different, auto trans use hydraulic oil or ATF ( automatic transmission fluid ) and manuals use that or a very thick version of gear lube like 80w-90.


Use Automatic Transmission/Engine Oil for ATV's ONLY! Find it at your local ATV Shop.


Your transmission does use lube oil. It takes a thicker oil like 75w90 or 90w140 and NOT automatic transmission fluid.


Automatic transmission oil is basically hydraulic oil for use in pumps. It is NOT recommended for use in any manual style transmission. All automatic transmissions in ATVs are a CVT type, and use no fluids. You should buy the proper gear oil for your ATV transmission as instructed in the owners manual.


No. HD motor oil is designed to lubricate engine internal components and in most cases contains detergents that help keep the engine clean. If it were a manual transmission and you had to add oil in an emergency situation to get to a repair shop, yes HD motor oil could work. If it is an automatic transmission, NO!!! This would destroy the transmission. Jim


I went to Lincoln Tech Auto school and the Professor in my Automatic Transmissions class told me the best thing to do, to clean out your engine is to put Automatic Transmission fluid in it and run it over the weekend and then change it out with regular motor oil.


You can use automatic transmission fluid (ATF) or get tranny fluid from the Honda dealer.



A transmission that does not use a clutch and pressure plate to disconnect from the engine.


Engine Oil; SAE 10W 30 to 15W 50 or API SG/CD Automatic Transmission; Dexron llD


Automatic transmission fluid is added through the transmission dipstick tube which is located under the driver's seat. Release the driver's seat and open the engine access cover. The engine oil dipstick is also located here. Remove the Automatic transmission dipstick, use a funnel and add fluid slowly, a little at a time. Do not overfill. Make sure you use proper type of automatic transmission fluid. Make sure vehicle is on level surface and warmed up when checking. Also, refer to your owner's manual for proper procedure to check your transmission fluid. Engine may need to be running with transmission in park or neutral. Be sure to use your emergency brake. Automatic transmission fluid expands as it gets hot, so better to add a little than a lot.


Use Dextron automatic transmission fluid (even for manual transmission) per the factory manual. Cheers Malcolm Use Dextron automatic transmission fluid (even for manual transmission) per the factory manual. Cheers Malcolm


Transmission oil is a motor oil specifically manufactured for transmissions and differentials in cars. Compared to engine oil it is of a higher viscosity which ensures good transfer and better protects the gears. This heavy oil can create viscous drag and lead to inefficiencies in operation. Some modern automatic transmissions do not use such a heavy oil at all but lubricate with the lower viscosity hydraulic fluid, which is available at pressure within the automatic transmission. Transmission oil is usually associated with a strong sulfur smell.


For the 4.0 liter SOHC , V6 engine use ( 5W-30 engine oil ) For the 4.6 liter V8 engine use ( 5W-20 engine oil ) For the AWD transfer case ( and the 4X4 transfer case ) use Motorcraft MERCON automatic transmission fluid According to the 2004 Mercury Mountaineer Owner Guide


On a 1996 Ford Mustang : The automatic transmission fluid level dipstick is located in the engine compartment , near the firewall , on the passenger side of the engine in the engine compartment ( use a funnel )


Engine Oil - use with API certification Transmission Oil - Used OEM Mitsubishi Transmission Oil Only.


almost all motorcycles use a common reservoir for the engine, transmission and even the clutch, so they all use engine oil.


The transmission fluid for the automatic transmission is added through the automatic transmission fluid dipstick located to the passenger side of the engine near the firewall , use a funnel



Ducati engines are unitized designs, meaning that the engine and transmission use the same oil and oiling system. There is no separate drain plug nor oil fill for the transmission and engine.


The type of induction an engine uses is not directly relevant to its transmission type. In other words the engine can be naturally aspirated, turbo or supercharged and use an automatic, manual, cvt etc.
