    Default Gearbox oil renewal advice needed

    I'm looking to renew my gearbox oil and went to vauxhall and they said not to, just check if it needs topping up?
    Is this right?
    Surely it needs changing every so often

    Whether it needs changing, how much to put in, how to do it and what to put in it all depend on which gearbox it is.

    Not just automatics benefit from an oil change, the F40 benefits from new oil and using 2.4 litres instead of 3.2, but I don't think the OP has the F40.
