Do you happen to know what type fluid is used in the ZF? I really want this thing to go another 100k. I vow to keep up with the fluid changes as I've done before, but my tech said its probably the fluid getting too hot. So based on this thread It seems to have had the wrong fluid installed the last time the tranny was rebuilt. I have an extra bottle at home. I'll post a pic of it when I get home later to see if it's the right one.
