Default Dumb question, please help.

A friend that drives an STi said that the transmission and the front differentials uses the same fluid but he was not sure about the WRX. I am trying to figure out if the front differentials uses the same fluid as the transmission. I have also looked in the maintenance thread and found that the fluid changes was for transmission/rear diff. So when I change the front and rear differentials I will need to use transmission fluid for the front to replace both transmission/front diff and use a differential fluid for only the rears? Or is the STi the only car that will have both transmission and diff use the same fluid?



Thanks,
StealthfishWRX

The front diff fluid gets changed at the same time as the tranny fluid -- they share it.

Use a different gear lube for the rear diff.
