Hey,
Has anyone used Castrol Transmax Z in their E-Series T5's?
It's a fully synthetic Dexron III fluid, and as far as I know that's what the T5 is meant to take yea - Dexron III?

Just after peoples experiences with it.

Cheers.

Running it in my XR6, made a big difference to shift quality.
Well worth it.

Sweet. Did you need any additives at all, or does it run fine straight from the bottle?

next fluid change on the box simply replace the filter and gasket and buy the transmax, just put the same amount of transmax in that the box requires, ie instead of 3 l of dex III 3 l of transmax, capeach? :idea:

I just noticed this thread after starting my other one. Just a quick question mate, did you swap over from a manual oil to transmax Z ? I was thinking of doing this but wasn't sure if the remnants of the old oil would affect the new synthetic oil thats going into it?? I also read somewhere in this thread about changing a filter and gasket -- I wasn't aware that there was a filter in the T5's.
