    many good suggestions in first 7 posts on changing transmission oil , in here :
    https://www.ram1500diesel.com/forum/...uid-check.html
    .................................................. ........................
    look at video here :

    double check level of oil after the thermal bypass valve has opened
    and now cooling system was filled ,
    the transmission oil level will now be too low ,
    so recheck , and bring back up to proper level .( wait to be in ZF temp region
    for oil level check , if still warm it will overflow ) .
    .......................................
    In video , at 12:15 , the guy talks about the cooling system refilling and
    bringing level down .

    hey BrianF,
    Where do you buy PetroCan Duradrive? Looks like they sell online but only if you have a corporate account? Do they carry specialty oils at gas stations?

    So hard to find specialty fluids here in Canada. Do you know where to get the transfer case fluid or equivalent BW-44?

    Havent changed mine yet, but will be using MaxLife when I do. I have put it in nearly everything I have serviced the trans on and never had a problem.

    Where did you get your filter/pan from and would you share what it ran you$$$ wise?

    Thanks.

    Cds13ca, I buy from bulk dealers. I am not sure what is in the petrocan fuel stations as i don't go there ever.

    Around these parts there are bulk dealers in just about every little town. I think the pc website lists all the dealers.....

    I installed Amsoil Fuel Efficient ATF along with a PPE pan 1,200 miles ago. Shifts perfectly, several hundred miles of travel trailer towing as well. No issues.
