Quadra Trac Transfer Case Fluid

While doing some research on this fluid it sounds like they make a "special" fluid for these. Can some one tell me what fluid I can use and why is it so "special" and if there is something like it that I can use that is cheaper than $8.00 a qt.

You can use 30w ND motor oil in place of it. For those who doubt look in the front of a Haynes repair manual. You can buy it for about 1/3 the price at any parts store.

You will want to at least put some LS additive in there. While I have no knowledge of the vialibility of 30W, if the LS is in good shape it will chatter without the additive.

What is an "LS additive"?

The Q track uses a cone style limited slip to aid biasing power to both drivelines. They are prone to chattering and erratic operation without the "special oil" or a limited slip additive.

OK, so it's $8 a quart and takes 2.5 quarts (that's if you have low range too). $24 is cheap to not have to replace your transfer case. You'll only have to do this every few years....and that's if you drive it a lot.
