Needs some editing there Latnite. Challengers don't have a 2.7L, a diesel, a transfer case, or a front axle.

Admin,
True, the Fluid specifications listing was for all Dodge platform engine
sizes, including diesel but inclusive to Challenger. To cull down the fluid
spec listing to specific Challenger engine(s), I edited out those items that
did not pertain specifically to the LC chassis. Just in case anyone did not
know what their engine size or chassis type was.

If your Challenger is emitting smoke, you may want to check for
emissions DTC's, proper fuel grade and verify proper fluid specifications
pertaining to your engine type as listed previously.

:D
