Default LT5/ZR-1 Fluids

HammerZR1 initiated this list of ZR1/LT5 Fluids and I added photos and additional information

ENGINE OIL (LT5) ................. TRANSMISSION OIL (ZF S6-40)..........DIFFERENTIAL OIL Limited slip

8.6 quarts (with filter change) .....4.4 pints - Castrol TWS 10W-60 ............3.2 pints - Mobil 1 - 75W-90 Gear Lube
Amsoil 10W-40 AMO Motor Oil
Bosch 3401 Filter
FRAM TG 3985 Filter
Mobile 1 M1-207 Filter
................... ..................



For L98 engine use Mobile 1 Synthetic 5W-30

See Notes below regarding oil change intervals.

Amsoil SAE 10W-40
Castrol 10W-60

1. CAPACITIES
Engine (LT5), without filter...............7.6 quarts
Cooling System (ZR1), Initial Fill.......18.0 quarts
Manual Transmission (ZF S6-40)........4.4 pints
Differential (ZR1)............................3.2 pints

2. Fill and Drain Plug TORQUES
Oil Pan Drain Plug (14 mm Box wrench).....38 ft-lbs (5/8-18 Thread)
The Oil Drain Plug is a Helicoil insert which is installed to reduce wear and tear on an Aluminum Thread.
A 14 mm open end flex head Ratchet works perfectly on Oil Drain Plug.



3. Manual Transmission Allen Plugs use 17 mm Allen Wrench (see Note D Below).
Fill Plug Allen wrench torque........26 ft-lbs
Drain Plug Allen wrench torque.....26 ft-lbs

4. Differential Fill Plug use 3/8 inch Allen Wrench.
Always use a Fluid Pump when adding fluid to the Differential or Transmission.



5. Adding the Differential Oil Drain Plug to the ZR1 differential is a great idea.
The original ZR1 differential has no drain plug and the only way to remove differential fluid is to suck said fluid from the differential Allen Head Fill Plug. See Item #4 LT5 Added Systems

Install item # 584029 DIFFERENTIAL DRAIN PLUG KIT can be obtained from Corvette Central (includes 1/8 inch pipe tap, 11/32 drill bit) Differential Drain Plug Kit

Use 1/8 inch Aluminum allen head pipe plug you have to purchase separately 1/8 inch allen head pipe plugs

The kit provides a template that puts the hole just left of the center bolt in the valley of the differential. Just drill the hole gently and the differential oil and any shavings will drain completely. Then tap and install 1/8 inch Aluminum allen head pipe plug. Do not tap too deeply to make sure the pipe plug is tight and flush when finished.

Flush a bit with Mobile 1 75/90 gear lube after completing the tap before installing the 1/8 inch allen head pipe plug.

6. RADIATOR COOLANT
You want to only use the green coolant. They have it at Napa and it meets 1825M GM Spec.

For Zerex the first gallon is called Regular Green Coolant (GM 1825M), the second gallon is called Original Formula (GM 1825M). Zerex ZXRU1 is 50-50 and Zerex ZX001 is undiluted. The third gallon is NAPA coolant (GM 1825M).

OROR

NAPA

7. OIL FILTER
I concur with HammerZR1 on all fluids cited above except I am using the Mobile 1 M1-207 oil filter.
Mobile 1 M1-207 Oil Filter

8. BRAKE and CLUTCH FLUID
For brake and clutch fluid Dot 3 or Dot 4 (Prefer Dot 4).

Notes:
A. I change engine oil every 2,000 - 3,000 miles (5,000 miles if cross country driving).
B. ZF Doc says until someone invents a copper magnet, change the ZF S6-40 6-speed transmission oil at 10,000 - 12,000 mile intervals so as to minimize the amount of deposits of the suspended spent synchronizer material from collecting in critical component contact surface areas.
C. On previously owned cars/trucks, I change engine, transmission, differential fluid and coolant immediately upon purchase (extracting old brake/clutch fluid and cleaning brake/clutch fluid reservoirs). This assures proper fluid levels and reduces comtaminants accumulated over the previous life of the vehicle.


D. Be careful on inserting the 17 mm Allen Wrench into the Transmission Drain Plug. That Transmission Drain Plug often has road rash which prevents complete insertion of the 17 mm Allen. If not completely inserted you may strip the Allen part of the Drain Plug.
Snap-On 17mm Allen/3/8 socket

Dress up the Allen part of the Drain Plug and then tap the 17 mm Allen into the plug using a small hammer for full insertion before applying a torque on the 17 mm Allen Wrench to remove the Drain Plug. I use a box wrench that fits over the long end of the 17 mm Allen Wrench for additional leverage making sure you keep the 17 mm Allen Wrench fully inserted in the Drain Plug you are removing.

17 mm Allen Wrench


E. Oil Viscosity.

Newer engines are built with tighter tolerances (use lighter oil).
High Mileage engines lose tolerances (use heavier oil).
Hot climates (hotter engines) thin oil (use heavier oil).
Cold climates (colder engines) thicken oil (use lighter oil).
Often starting colder engines (lighter oil).
Running engines for long hauls once started (use heavier oils).
Newer synthetic oils do not loose viscosity with use (use lighter oils).
In Fl or CA coastal (use heavier oils).
In SD winter ....definitley (use thinner oils).
Frequent oil changes (use thinner oils).
Infrequent oil changes (use heavier oils).

F. Changing Engine Oil on the LT5.
Let the engine sit over night so you can remove the oil filter without a mess as Mike suggests. Yes...some oil filters have a check valve of sorts but on Mobile 1 M1-207s the filter can be removed without any oil mess after sitting over night.

The LT5 engine and oil cooler will hold about 12 quarts of oil of which you drain about 8-9 quarts on an oil change.
So you get about 70 % of the old oil changed on an oil change. Next time you will get 70% of that 30% old old oil (9% of old old oil remaing), and on the third change you will get 70% of the 9% old old old oil remaining with 3% of old old old oil remaining. And so it goes

The oil pick up screen in the LT5 Oil Pan sits about 1/4 inch from the bottom of the pan (has nothing to do with changing oil :p). When you drain oil (depending on how the ZR1 is sitting) you will have about 1/4 inch of oil in the bottom of the oil pan that does not drain.

On a ZR1 just purchased I will change oil twice within a week or so of each change to get down to the 9% of original "unknown" oil remaining.
