    Vehicle : 3.2 gsi

    Trim : gsi

    Engine : 3200

    Year : 2003

    Default Auto box oil/filter

    Hey guys

    Just wondering if anyone could tell me the exact grade auto transmission fluid i need for my 3.2 v6 GSi 2003

    Reason i ask is because my vx dealer cant seem to tell me.... They say it comes in a plain bottle so they dont know, seem strange to me but im sure people on here will know lol

    Also ive enquired the price of both the oil and the filter and have been given a price of £28 + vat for the fluid and £110 + vat for the filter. Seems alot for a filter :/

    Anyone know of cheaper filters for my car or if they can just be cleaned? £110+vat just seems crazy for a filter when i dont even know if it all needs changing (dont know when last owner did it, but recently its gotten very jumpy in gear changing)

    Ring a Vauxhall dealer and ask how much the filter is on "Trade Club", it'll probably be 20-50% cheaper. If so, there are plenty of people on here who have Trade Club membership and could buy it for you/with you.

    Chuddy - do a search for all posts for the forum member "fikse", specifically his posts on auto boxes. Lots of info on auto box oils and flushing.

    I got 4lt of auto box oil from Parts for Saabs, same spec as VX as they're both GM http://www.partsforsaabs.com/advance...checkbutton=Go. Back in July 2008, mine came to £30.27 delivered, so the VX stealer's price is a bit dearer. Part no. for AF33 oil is 93160393.

    Oh, and using a Haynes manual helps as it covers the AF33 box.

    HTH
