    What intervals are recommended to change out the transmission, transfer case, and rear diff gear oil? My friend said that the transfer case and rear diff oil only need to be changed (on most cars) if there is a problem or every 100,000 miles or so.

    Also, is there any sort of magnet in the transmission for picking up stray metal filings from the rare missed shifts? I feel I should probably change the transmission oil, at least, especially if the synchros really are brass, would rather not have metal filings circulating in there...

    b) Extended periods of idling or low speed operation
    c) Repeated short trips of less than 16 km {10 miles}

    If this component has been submerged in water, the oil should be changed.

    I take that to mean about every 30k.

    Really, all three are fine.
    I say you should use Amsoil. You'll just as fast find many who swear by either Redline or the purple stuff. Healthy argument gets made for some motorcraft fluid also (should be included in the first post by now...)

    Any of them are very likely better than what you've got in there now if your thinking about changing em.
