They use the same oil in the transmission as in the engine, usually, it is 15W40 engine oil!

It looks like there is two hydraulic lines tho that go from the hydraulic reservoir , to the trans so I thought that it was supposed to take hydraulic fluidI mean maybe the lines do run to the trans but it almost looks like they run to two diff pumps that are on top the trans
Also the trans doesn't have a dipstick you check and fill it like you would a rear end or with gear oil . By filling it with fluid until it starts pouring out of the top boltI can send pics

So, I wasn't clear, fluid is the same for hydraulic and transmission! So actually all you need is one oil for engine, transmission and hydraulic.

Ok I'm sorry I am probably confusing u , I just looked and the lines from the hydraulic res do run to the top of trans but it looks like they run to two diff pro pumps on top of trans . So I think it takes trans fluid
