    loads of threads on changing gearbox oil. There are field remedies on refilling with less oil. Plus putting some molyslip in.

    Yea its a vauxhall thing, get used to it. You could try changing the box oil to 2,4 litres and re-aligning the gear selector, but i doubt it will make much difference.

    Great engine though enjoy
