I can give you the Nissan recommendations for the D40 from their factory manual, which should be very similar to the D22.

Engine oil: 7.1 litres (7.6 with oil filter change) of API grade CF-4 or JASO DH-1. Never use API CG-4. Preferred viscosity is 5W-30.

Manual gearbox: 3.99 litres (2WD) or 4.32 litres (4WD) of API GL-4, SAE 75W-85

Transfer case: Genuine Nissan ATF Matic Fluid D (probably Dexron III)

Diff - Front - 0.85 litres
Diff - Rear - 2.01 litres of:
* API Gl-5 SAE 80W-90 for standard diff
* Gear Oil Hypoid LSD part No. KLD31-8090403 "or equivalent" (no other info)

Auto gearbox: "Genuine Nissan ATF Matic Fluid J. They explicity state that anything other than genuine Nissan ATF will void the warranty.

Power Steering: Genuine Nissan PSF or equivalent - Dexron III type ATF can be used.

Brake Fluid: Dot 3 (US FMVSS No. 116).

Multi purpose grease: NLGI No.2 (Lithium soap base).

Hope that helps!

Quick Question, Best way to empty radiator out....

Got bash plates etc underneath, do they have to be removed to find a tap/pull hose?

And D40 has different fluid amounts than D22.. ZD30 took 6.2 litres engine oil, 11 litres radiator coolant, 5.1 Manual Transmission, 1.3 for Rear & Front diff with 10% LSD Friction modifier.

if ur using penrite limslip 140 for the rear diff do you still need a friction modifier?
