[doc] Re: Auto Gearbox oil

Hi Paul

5 litres? ... eek! seems a little full at that :) ... i know on the 2
Autos i have worked on recently that they both held roughly 2.5
litres ( ie the 5 litre containers were half full:) ) so i would say
you are about there.   Its really good how the workshop or even the
car manual doesnt tell you how much is needed :)

Obviously check the dip stick when its hot as well as cold for the
levels, on both we filled them at cold a 'tad' above the cold fill
line , and wrote on my manual how much we used.

you can soon tell if there is enough in there the car wont want to
accelerate :)

Are you replacing your Final drive oil/ Gear oil 1.6 litres approx 
is needed for that. Remove the top fill plug first, just in case it
wont budge after you have drained it down from the bottom one.  
Refill back up to the top fill plug.

Changing the fluids and filter made a marked improvement on the
shifting on my car, let us know how it effects yours.

Hope this helps fellow minority auto owner :)
