Well, dont yell at me. BUT. I contacted and spoke to 2 oil companies, red line and Castrol.
Redline, on the transmission I use heavy duty shockproof and they said you can go 40k between changes. I changed it at 38k, since last change, and came out almost as pink as it went in. BUT change the rear end every 10k, just did that at 210k and pretty as pink with very minuscule metal dust on the magnet.
Castrol, with the 4T semi synthetic, you can go 10K between changes. I have been following those rules for the last 100k. And normal fluid changes, brake, clutch.
I changed one slave and weep hole,one set of shocks(another set is due), the exhaust(hole), rear disk(rattle), front brake lines(pin hole), one drive shaft(due for another one). Oh yea. lots of tires.LOL.
