    Exclamation Gear box transmission oil?

    HI, What is the best OIL FOR THE GEAR BOX ON MY 1.9 CDTI ELITE 150 6 SPEED DIESEL, I Believe it has an F40 GEAR BOX.


    I also have heard to put in 2.7 litres instead of 3.2, what is the best OIL For the gear box and how much should be put in & where can I get it from & the ring / sump?

    Thanks

    I used Castrol SMX fully synthetic in my F40 gearbox.. You use 2.4 litres, not 2.7 or 3.2..

    Yes. The earlier cars had 3.2 litres in them, and there's a Vauxhall official fix that involves reducing the oil level by 0.8 litres. The later cars had 2.4 litres put in at the factory.
