Re: New Oil for AUII XR8 T5

No worries TP ,
ATF (dextron 3) and a tube of nulon additive did the trick for me.....

Havent had the chance to try Xtra Light gear oil yet....

Mines only done 44000km's so I am still not sure whether to go the Dex III, or the Castrol stuff.

Re: New Oil for AUII XR8 T5

I don't mind paying a little bit extra for a longer lasting box, also what type of price are you looking at for this stuff, and how much, 1,9ltrs comes to mind but I am not sure.

Re: New Oil for AUII XR8 T5

About two litres, about $11-$15 a litre. (shop around).

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.
