    Default 3.2V6 Gearbox oil?

    Is it possible/advisable to change the gearbox oil on the V6?

    Was gonna have a go when I do the oil change - On the subject of oil:

    opieoils.co.uk recommends 5w 40 oil?

    I have always used 0w 30?

    Any advice?

    it's not a service item to change the gearbox oil on a manual car..

    I'd use 5W30 oil ( as thats what VX reccomend)...

    Have Fuchs 5W-40 Titan Supersyn in my GSi as recommended by Opie, no problem at all and I don't think there will be as I intend to change it every 10k.

    How much do you put in? Do you measure first, or do you use some sort of fill level indicator?
