;)If you check the book it is very specific 40w engine oil.  The transmission in our
'04 was sluggish until I changed the oil as per "Da Book", it shifts much better
now.

In my 4104 Maintenance Manual in the back of the book it indicates to use lubricant type "ES" Engine Oil - Special.
Also in the manual in Lubrication section 13, page 210, under "Lubricating Oil-Special, it states the following...

"Type of oil indicated by symbol "ES" on chart must be an S. A. E. 50 engine oil of good quality such as "Aviation Grade Engine Oil" or S. A. E. 50 Heavy Duty Engine Oil designated as for service "DG". Ordinary gear oils are not satisfactory."


I have been using the straight 50 heavy duty engine oil from NAPA without any problems. The previous owner did the same.

Dallas,

Hit the Ctrl and + keys on your keyboard at the same time and any webpage font will enlarge. Each time you do it it will get larger. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to affect photos or some other parts of the page.

Don't know what the size limit is, never tried.

Same goes for smaller, just hit the Ctrl and - keys.

Thanks Gus,

I was referring more to the type of font they used rather than the size of the font.

Standard Pica or other typewriter style font's just don't show up well on my screen.

Besides, I may be stupid, but not blind! (to paraphrase a bit),  Grin Grin Grin

Dallas,

Didn't mean to insult your intelligence but some of these little helpers are sometimes not known. It may help others also, I only discovered this a year or two ago.

Gus, you didn't insult my intelligence. My wife has explained to me, (using small words and speaking very slowly), that the only smart thing I've ever done is to marry her, and that's questionable.
