Hello I am new here. Just purchased a 1984 Ranger 4X4 2.8L V6 5 speed. I have searched posts and here https://therangerstation.com/mobile/fluid_and_capacities.shtml for capacities but cant find a few.

Whats the rear end fluid full type and capacity?

The front says "Hypoid Gear Lubicant SAE 80W or 90W " Is it 80-140, 90-120 or what??

Coolant capacity says:
See Capacity Column​
2001-1983​
Premium Engine Coolant E2FZ-19549-AA (green)​
2.5L manual transmission 10.5 quarts

2.5L automatic transmission 10.2 quarts
3.0L manual transmission 15.2 quarts
3.0L automatic transmission 14.8 quarts
4.0L manual transmission 13.5 quarts
4.0L automatic transmission 13.2 quarts​

Wheres the 2.8L coolant capacity?

Whats the brake fluid capacity?

Is there an open filter air intake available for this motor?

Its in need of a full tune up, all fluids that can be seen are disgusting. Does anyone have any tips or anything you think I should know about this truck?

Thanks

The front diff capacity is not 80-14, nor is it 90-120. It can use either straight 80W or straight 90W, or if you really want to insist on a fancy multi-viscosity gear oil, you could use 80W-90. You will need to purchase three quarts. Put it in until it starts coming back out.

Coolant capacity for the 2.8L clearly is not on the chart you posted, so I can tell you where it isn't, but not where it is. It will hold about two gallons, give or take.

Brake fluid, buy a quart. That's more than you will need, but price-wise it will beat buying fluid in pints.
