Question about 1999 Land Rover Range Rover
I have managed to drain out only a little over 6 litres of the old Dextron oil.The Land Rover official workshop manual says it holds a rather unlikely 11 litres (I think they mean pints).
The local Land Rover dealers say about 6 litres.
I am going to refil with Comma Multi Vehicle automatic fluid which Comma technical dept say exceeds all the requirements of the old dextron oil and is completely suitable for gearbox refill but they did say I should not use the Comma oil if there really was another 5 litres of oil lurking in the transmission somewhere. ie they would not recommend mixing more than 20% of the old dextron with the new comma oil. How much oil does the box hold and have you any reservations or recommendations on the Comma oil.
Best is to fill about 5 litres and start the vehicle.While idling fill oil in 500 ml incriments while checking the level in between.Each vehicle seems to have a mind of its own.I have had no experience with Comma oils.Most effective would be to replace the transmission filter at the same time and there will always be a little oil left in the tourque converter hence the high volume in your manual.
