    2.2i Coupe Auto gearbox oil help

    I have checked the oil level on the gearbox and it is low and I was told you need Dexron II or Dexron III so was wondering if this is the right oil - http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-745-cast...productDetails ?

    Also how do I top the oil up? Do I use the dip stick tube?

    Thanx for any help

    Hi Arnie
    you need dexron III and you fill it up via the dipstick tube for the auto gearbox , the gearbox oil will come with a tube that fits inside the dipstick tube , it should only take a litre to top your gearbox up you may as well get it from vauxhall and have the same grade oil in there

    Youre welcome mate once you've done it you need to find out where the
    fluid has disappeared to ,as auto gearbox's don't burn oil like engines will ,so there has to be a leak some where , best to get it sorted or at least keep a good check on the fluid , welcome to the club by the way lol

    Thanx for the advice ill try and have a look but I personaly think its just not been topped up to the right level.
    reason I say this is because just over a year ago the gearbox broke on me and it went back to the dealers and got fixed under warranty. The whole gearbox got replaced (brand new) and I never thought to check it till the other day when I found out that it had a dip stick
    It is just over the minimum marker but is very very clean and looks like new oil.

    P.s. thanx for the welcome
