    GU 4.2 Wagon manual gearbox.

    G'Day all,
    How many litres of oil does the gearbox take ?
    What oil would you recommend ?
    Cheers,
    Tonks.

    Straight from original Nissan hand book that came with my 2006 4.2TDi
    Gearbox API GL4 SAE 75w85. Gearbox 3.5lt

    The Haynes workshop manual advises SAE 75w90 API GL4

    I am using Fuchs oils for everything now (new local dealer with good price) but was using Penrite with no problems but was expensive.

    I ended up putting in Castrol VMX80, very smooth gear changes now.

    My gen manual recommends API GL4 75-90w only.
    the only is actually written in there, not my input.

    Manual was released with the 02 model & printed in 2001.

    personally I'd stick with the higher W given todays pushing 40c
    IF IT'S NOT A NISSAN.
    THEN IT'S A COMPROMISE

    Exactly what I filled my cog box with. Unsure what was in it prior, but it's very smooth after that.
