Question Transmission Oil Change

Hello All,

Any ideas as to what transmission fuel to change - gearbox has started to get a bit clunky and I think this'll solve the problem - I just don't know which type to use / where to get it from...

cheers...

Re: Transmission Oil Change

I just replaced mine when I changed the engine and clutch, it took 3L fully synth manual transmission oil; I got mine from fiat 29 quid, it was a bit expensive you proberly can get it cheaper elsewhere, it was just easy as I was there getting a gearbox seal. Tip make sure the inner CV boots are secure and not leaking, as these are the only things holding the oil in. The filler plug is opposite the charcole filter and is a little awkward to fill, I used a long flex funnel. Keep filling until it dribbles back out of the hole. I aslo used a large tork socket to remove the plug. If you want to drain the old oil out the plug is located lower right of the box.

Re: Transmission Oil Change

I bought Tutela Car ZC75 Synth from Shop4parts. I used a plastic syringe kit (from ebay) - it makes the job a lot easier.

Re: Transmission Oil Change

3 L is too much, only 1.9 l i think.

Re: Transmission Oil Change

Fiat gave me 3 bottles and I used them all before the oil dribbled back out of the oil filer plug, maybe they were not 1L bottles I will check when I get home, 3L does sound a little excessive for auch a small box.

Re: Transmission Oil Change

If it's an 899 (or a non Sporting 1108 Sei) do check the inner boots, as said, on those models (but not the Sportings) they are all that keeps the oil in.

But the clunking may simply be that the clutch needs adjusting (which is much cheaper and less messy).
