Hey I have a 08 ridgeline lx (Canadian version) and I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a synthetic replacement for the vtm-4 rear diff fluid and transfer case fluid. I am moving to yellowknife North West Territories and it can get to below -40 celcius. Going all synthetic everything else.
Thanks!

Transfer case - use whatever GL-4/GL-5 you like, so yes.

Diff-VTM-4, no. Must use Honda fluid, the internals are not like a domestic diff. Although I wouldn't be sirprised if the Honda fluid was synthetic.

Yes after some research I believe your right. Aparently from what ive read is that almost all BorgWarner diffs take synthetic only. Now to find out how to get some here.

I think I will leave the autotrans fluid honda, from what I hear they work best with the honda fluid. How ever I will get some high quality synthetic transfer case fluids. thanks!
