Hi, the symbol (!) is for tire pressure warning light. Check the tire pressures. If its good, some pressure sensor should be faulty.

    Some cars, measure check from speed of the running car. May be that is why you see it while changing gears (different speed) ...


    Also check if the tires are good.

Hi! For manual transmissions, there is a center differential lock button on the dashboard that manually locks the front and rear axles. When engaging, an amber "C. Diff Lock" indicator lights on the dashboard. Its just a normal thing. You aren't hearing any beeps, right.

    You may have used the central diffrential lock button which is to be used during difficult situations only. Disengage it before it makes any kind of problem with your central diffrential.



    Thanks

    These lights are unique solid state electronic units designed for increased driver performance without over-revving and stressing high performance engines. Component involved for this is called as ECT - electronically controlled transmission. It will change points of shifting gears in an automatic transmission box. If you turn it on and drive you'll notice that the engine revs up almost until the red line before shifting into next gear.

    The point is to utilize maximum range of torque available before shifting. Very useful for overtaking.



    Also, these lights indicate a low tyre pressure when a tyre is deflated or has low air pressure.

What is righ amount of oil i must put in the gearbox


if auto - the level on the dip stick
if manual remove the filler plug in the side of the box and the right amount is when the oil runs out of that fill hole
the oil level is at the thread s of the hole
if there are 2 plugs in the side of the box , remove both and put oil in the upper one until it runs out of the bottom hole replace plugs and do up tight.
point of interest
all manual boxes, transfer cases and diff oil levels are to the bottom of the fill hole thread.

I Need to top up my gearbox oil and I don't know where the filler part is on the gearbox.


Hello,
Are you referring to the front diff,rear diff or transfer case? On any of them gear boxes there is a fill plug and sometimes a drain plug. The fill plug is the plug closer to the top of the gear box. Just turn it out and wipe the metal shavings off it and fill the gearbox with the required gear lube until the lubricant just barely seeps out and that's the fill level. Plug the gear box again and your done. This is standard with gearboxes.
Regards, Tony

Where under bonnett do i find the gear box oil dip 94 vitara


For a manual gearbox, there isn't a dipstick. There is a plug on the LH side of the diff housing part of the gearbox, just rearwards of where the LH driveshaft leaves the diff. Remove this plug, and the box should be filled to this level. This needs to be done on a level surface. If changing the oil, about 2.5 litres will be needed after draining the old stuff.
