one more question. The Outlander is spec'd for a "hypoid" gear oil. In reference to a "hypoid gear oil", I've read that hypoid gears are supposed to be a high pressure setup, and so wouldn't a synthetic that has an "extreme pressure" additive pack work?
I've been looking at something like this:
Red Line Synthetic Oil - Gear Oil for Manual Transmissions - 75W90 NS GL-5 Gear Oil
Weights look right, still GL-5, no LS additive, extreme pressure additive....
