Thanks!
so did I mess up putting a non synthetic in my rear diff? I plan on changing it out after 3000 miles the thing that bothered me was it was almost a full pint low from the factory. I couldnt find anyone in this town with 75-140 syn I will have to order it from amsoil I just dont have the cash at this moment in time.

I found that the Castrol ATF meets Nissan Matic D & J specs. I put it in my transfer case.

The 05+ X uses Matic J tranny fluid, not Dexron3 and Mercon.

I am reffering to the transfer case kokopop said:
"Transfer Case:
Type: Genuine Nissan Matic D ATF or DEXRON III or MERCON or equivalent
Capacity: 2 1/8 qt or 2.0L "

Is this information not correct??
Cause if so I need to go and change the fluid again and I wasted 30 bucks!
