    Default F40 Gearbox Oil

    Hey chaps. Anyone recommend a quality gearbox oil for the f40 box, other than GM? Changed the oil just over a year ago with the red GM stuff from Vauxhall, but very soon going to be changing the clutch and flywheel. Just wondering if theres anything better, or to stick with genuine. TIA

    When my clutch was done recently, I used “GL5 FUCHS TITAN SINTOFLUID Synthetic Transmission Oil Fluid 75W-80 3 Litre” instead of VX stuff. I was amazed at how much smoother the box was. Cheaper too.

    Just been doing some research and found you shouldn't use gl5 in a gl4 box! Apparently the extra chemicals/additives in the gl5 can strip the brass coating off the syncros. The red GM oil is made by Castrol, and is 75/85 synthetic gl4. So guna play it safe and stick with that. Cheers anyway
