Hey peeps, just curious if anyone knows how to change the oil in my gear box.
I.e is there just a sump plug to pull out, if so how do I fill it back up? And how many liters will it take to fill it back up. Also is there an oil filter? Cheers
Mix!

no theres no sump plug will need to removed sump pan to drain.
there should be a filter for it but not 100% sure.
and they normally take roughly 4.0L and take castrol dexron 3 or TQ 95.
hope that helps.
cheers
Daniel

theres a fill plug thats a 16mm plug on the right side of the trans near where exhaust is.
just above the sump, more near the rear of the trans. if you can understand that.
cheers

It needs the oil to be pumped in. Then start the engine and finish filling when it overflows.
Make sure the car is on a level surface. Not easy to do if the car is on ramps. Maybe look into a workshop doing it.
