87 Dodge Raider - DL4 vs DL5 Gear Oil

Asked by May 21, 2017 at 11:56 PM about the 1987 Dodge Raider 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 87 Dodge Raider, 5 speed manual. I can't get DL4 Gear Oil for the
transmission. Will I run into problems using DL5 instead? Any
recommendations on which oil to use?

There is a difference between the oils from what I have researched, but found contradictory information if the two can be mixed. I would check with parts stores to see what they can find that is compatible to go into your transmission. All I find is GL-4 All TEMPS 80W,75W-85W

LOL. That's almost exactly what the parts store said. I can't get GL-4 and everyone goes with a GL-5. Which one? What problems? Depends on the vehicle. Neither of us found an official recommendation. He suggested asking transmission mechanics and other Raider owners. Anyone with a Raider want to weigh in?
