    Default 3.2 auto gearbox oil change

    Hi peeps,

    As I don't know what model auto box I've got on my 2002 GSi, it looks like, according to the owners manual, that I either change the oil at 40 or 60k.

    Either way, I'm approaching 60k now and the owners manual makes no reference to capacity or grade.

    Also, how do you actually change the oil?

    So if anyone can help me out with capacity, grade and a "How 2", I'd really appreciate it.

    Many thanks.

    Further to my thread above, I managed to locate the auto box dip stick buried away down below.

    The oil "looks" Ok but | checked the level with a cold engine.

    There are two marks on the dipstick, one for "hot", and below, one for "cold". The oil level in my box is at the hot mark (high level) even with a cold engine.

    Now the worrying bit - it says on the dipstick "DO NOT OVERFILL". I'm guessing mine IS overfilled given what I found above.

    Now I'm getting desparate for a reply to my original thread.

    According to Autodata Auto Transmission drain and refill is 3.0 to 3.5 litres for a Vectra C 3.2 2002, Vauxhall oil part number 93160393

    Autodata also suggests that the automatic transmission oil change should be every 40,000 mile on transmission types AF 13/17/20/22/23/33 only.

    I'm no mechanical guru, but I have a vague recollection (from an AW web-site?) that the type of transmission fluid is highly specific for this gearbox due to the nature of operation of the lock-up clutch. Make sure you get exactly the correct type when changing the fluid.

    Out of curiosity, what type of manual gearbox is in the GSI?

    F28? F35? F40?, and is it wide ratio or short?
