    K100, by gar it's been a while. Not many, really, there's engine coolant, engine oil, 90 wt. gear oil for trans, axle bearings, and rear ends, P/S oil( if equipped), is ATF, diesel fuel, of course, and DEF, but that's about it.
     
    Vampire and Diesel Dave Thank this.

    Basically the same as in a W900. Radiator, engine oil, transmission oil, differential oil, oil in the front hubs to lubricate the wheel bearings. Transmission and differential oil can be different depending on year model….

    Tell what engine it has( make & model), what transmission it has(make & model), all the other fluids will be fairly common.

    You're probably right. I'm not even sure the purpose of the original post.
