    What Transmission Fluid To Be Used?

    Hi ppl

    Could anyone tell me what oil and what weight to use in my F23 on the Coupe Turbo?
    Haynes doesnt specify the exact type, just gives a part number...not sure if its the same oil as they'd use in the F17 box. As the Haynes doesnt cover the Z20LET
    Tried getting to vauxhall yesterday but floods look like they have took there toll on the premisis.

    So would appreciate a quick reply if someone doesnt mind.

    Yea, the PAS fluid is the same as the manual gearbox oil too.
    My aim was to get some oil from Halfrauds or likewise today and try topping the oil up.
    Think there's hardly any in, getting a bit tempremental about changing gears at times.

    Halfords SAE 80 stuff is 6.99/ltr

    Dealers stuff is £12.99/ltr

    I know Vx use 2 different fluids . one for F23 and one for everything else.

    The universal one was £12.99 so Id imagine the F23 one (part number 9120541) would probs be the same if not a lot more.

    PAS fluid is 93160548 so although it is used as MTF on certain models - its not what Vx recommend for the F23


    Personally I went for some fully synth @ £8.99/ltr but having said that I wish I just went for the Halfords stuff

    Just go with the Vauxhall stuff.

    It's about £7 a litre Trade, and they don't disclose the specs of it.

    It's not the Same as ATF/PAS Fluid although it is red.

    Going to take it to the local vauxhall specialist, ive had work done at before and ask them to do a full gearbox oil change.
    Found the reverse switch, but to gain access you really need to take the passenger wheel off.
    Only thing is i had two new tyres put on, and took it back to have the wheels rebalanced. They've fired the nuts in with the airgun.
    Managed to break 3 of em loose, but the 4th one split two sockets apart
    Locking one should be fine as i made sure that was only hand tightened, never thought they would have fired em in that hard though!
