Ah ok. I believe that one is fine to use from what I've heard/read. Is it a blue color?Sorry I meant FZ. It's the exact same thing as the Mazda fluid but just a different brand. Will it hurt to mix?
This is what I have.
It costs $3.41 more per liter than the Mazda FZ on Amazon. Why not just stick with the genuine Mazda fluid?
Another testimony that Mazda under-filled the ATF from factory.Finally got around to doing this last night at 60K miles. Transmission was a little under filled and the fluid was pretty dark. Put in 4 quarts. Feels like it drives much smoother! Also changed the transfer case/front diff. Fluid was very dark and there was lots of sludge on the magnet.
I did that earlier last year, since it was easy to get to. I have been putting off the transmission and front diff for awhile because I didn't want to deal with taking off the front splash shield.Another testimony that Mazda under-filled the ATF from factory.
Any reason why you changed gear lubricant only at front transfer case, but not rear differential? I bet if you measure it, the rear differential is also severe under-filled from factory.
