    Default How much and what kind of oil to use in John Deere 460 loader?

    Noticed tractor overheated the other day. Cleaned out the filters and sides, checked the coolant. When the tractor cooled, I noticed the oil was extremely low. I live in Texas and running the tractor in over 100 degree heat is not uncommon. What type of oil should I put in the tractor to withstand the heat and be durable for the block? Also, should I be using a special coolant for our temperatures?

    Thank you sooooooooo much for all of your help.

    Just a little girl trying to use her little tractor in TX.

    Oil probably 15-40 synthetic, but someone might have a better idea.

    Coolant do you know what it is? Deere cool guard? Diesels need anti cavitation additive otherwise over time it can damage the motor.

    Nothing special needed. I like the John Deere products. Engine oil Plus 50 II 15w40, transmission oil Hygard Lo-viscosity, and Cool-Gard II antifreeze will provide plenty of protection for 100+ temps.
