    Default 2 questions ~ 1997 K1500 4X4 Z71

    I have a 97 k1500 4x4 Z71 regency addition. I wanna put new oil in the differential, front & back. I know the weight im just trying to figure out how much i put in it. The front is 1 3/4 qt n idk the ring gears for the back. I havent had a chance to give it a look but i work at autozone and found out some of what i need. So i figured id ask and see if anyone knows off hand.

    2nd question is has anyone use motorkote? My dad told me about this stuff n said semi drivers use it in there trucks n its supposed to be godly lol. You can use it in oil, transfer case, crank case, differential, power steering, n transmissions. Its a friction reducer and i was kinda asking for reviews. I bought it but i could bring it back if it sounds terrible. I was just wondering if anyone used it. Thanks!

    If you search the site, you will find 2 answers to your 1st question.
    - fill until the lub runs out the fill hole
    - fill until you can touch/feel it with your baby finger when you stick it into the hole. (this is the one I use).

    Your owner's manual should help you out.

    I'm not a fan of additives, so I don't know about Motorkote. My 2 cents, are, use a good synthetic oil and you should be good to go.

    Its not supposed to be an additive. Its like a friction fighter. You gotta see the testing on it. Its impressive lol

    If you add it to the oil in the crankcase, imho, it's an additive. I still say, use a good quality synthetic oil and you won't need "additives".
