    Default Checking Auto Gearbox oil on 2.8

    Hi All,

    2007 2.8v6 Elite.

    Sorry for the stupid question, but i was trying to check the auto gearbox oil.
    I looked for a dipstick but can't find one anywhere and the book/manual says nowt.
    So, am i correct in thinking it's a sealed unit with regards to oil levels?

    Cheers

    There should be a green dipstick deep down in the engine bay. You need a socket (don't know the correct size) to unhook the dipstick first, then you can check. At least that's how it's done on the AF33. The gearbox you have is from the same manufacturer.

    Angry Auto Box - no dipstick

    Having looked at pics of older boxes, the autobox on my 55 reg 2.2 petrol does not have a dipstick ... looks like the bean counters were involved in the design of the box !
