The old spec was for CD grade 30W oil and engine oils would meet that rating.

Multi-weight oil can meet this but, transmission oils are much more preferred.

Use CAT TDTO 30W or Allision C4 equivalent. You will need about 31 gallons.

The transmission pump will refill the torque converter, draining it helps flush out any trapped debris.

It is best to clean both screens at this time. Bottom rear of converter housing and right side of the engine, near the hydraulic pump.
