a For Arctic winter operation below -25°C (-10°F) but not above -7°C (20°F), use engine oil SAE 5W-30 SG/CD or SG/CE.
b For Ford design rear axles: add 4 oz. of Friction Modifier C8AZ-19B546-A (EST-M2C118-A) for complete refill of 8.8-inch ring gear limited slip rear axles. For F-250, F-350 with 10.25-inch ring gear limited slip rear axles, add 8 oz. of Friction Modifier C8AZ-19B546-A (EST-M2C118-A).
c Synthetic High Performance Rear Axle Lubricant F1TZ-19580-B (WSL-M2C192-A) may be substituted but only after axle assembly is completely drained.
d Add 2 oz. of Friction Modifier C8AZ-19B546-A (EST-M2C118-A or equivalent) to refill Dana limited slip axles.
e F-150 with 4.10:1 rear axle ratio: add 5.0 oz. of Friction Modifier F3TZ-19B546-MA meeting Ford specification WSP-M2C196-A for complete refill of Traction-Lok® rear axles.
f Synthetic MERCON® (E6AZ-19582-B) should be considered when operating under the following extreme conditions:
   Extensive idle time with transmission temperatures below -20°F (-29°C).
   Operating at maximum GCW (F-Super Duty) in hilly terrain with temperatures above 100°F (38°C).
   Continuous (30 minutes) PTO operations.
g As the clutch disc wears, the fluid level in the reservoir will rise. Fluid level above the "step" is an indication of disc wear, NOT overfill.

a Service refill capacities are determined by filling the rear axle 1/4 inch to 9/16 inch below the bottom of the filler hole.
b CAUTION: F-150 Truck with 4.10:1 rear axle ratio is equipped with synthetic rear axle lubricant and 5 oz. of additive friction modifier.
c Service refill capacities are determined by filling the rear axle to the bottom of filler hole.
d Fill Dana rear axle to 1/4-3/4-inch below bottom of fillhole.

Note: All rear axle lube quantities must be replaced every 100,000 miles (160,000 km) or if the axle has been submerged in water. Otherwise, the lube should not be checked or changed unless a leak is suspected or repair is required. Refer to the maintenance schedule.
