Differential Oil for 1987 Continental
I hope that someone here can help me out.
I'm planning to change the differential fluid on my 1987 Continental. The car only has 66k miles but the diff fluid has never been changed so I figure that it's time. The service manual says that it takes "90 Hypoid Gear Oil", but I'm having a hard time finding that. From my research online it looks like, hypoid gears require oil that is rated for extreme pressure, or an API GL-5 rating.
Would the Amsoil Synthetic 80W90 (GL-5) gear oil work properly for my differential, or is there a better choice?
