The gearbox oil – an overlooked but important product!
You will need completely different oil depending on whether you have a manual or an automatic gearbox. Oil that is perfectly suited to your gearbox – of the right grade and in the right quantity.
It is therefore important to check the vehicle’s service manual before carrying out any operations on the gearbox: oil changes should be carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
