Good day. I am driving a vw fox 1987. The first gear keeps on jumping out.What seems to be the problem.What type of gearbox oil to be used and how many litres.

There is nothing you can do about it. The gearbox need to be opened up and the gear clusters inside must be serviced. To fill it up go to a spare part dealer who will know what type of oil is used for every type of vehicle. Crawl underneath your vehicle and look for a plug with a (usually) square head on the side of the gearbox. Turn it out and fill it up until the oil starts running out of the hole. Replace the plug.

takes a few seconds to fill with oil
if lifters are worn
motor run low on oil or not serviced regularly

I have a 2002 Dodge ram 1500. I have a leak in the fron dif

Look all around the housing for a fill plug about mid-way up from the bottom.
Unscrew the plug (ususally with a 3/8" ratchet extenesion) and pump in the correct gear oil until it just begins to drip out the fill hole. Replace the plug snugly.
