What grade oil goes into a 1998 isuzu kb280dt le gearbox

I am having problems getting into gear when the pick up is not moving with the motor running. As soon as it is moving forward or backwards, it engages easy. I have been told that it could be the oil in the gearbox is old or the wrong grade. Please someone help. I have done some adjustments to the clutch. There are no fluid leaks and I have also re bled it. Still cant find the problem.

Clutch adjustment is ussually the cause of such a problem.... oil grade should not have a bearing on the issue; try to lenghen your adjustment rod a little more. For now you can change your shifting habits...Put the trans in first before cranking the engine and before coming to a stop a light...youll soon get the feel of at what speed it will drop right into first, usually just before coming to a stop.

IMO it's more likely that you have the wrong grade of ATF. It's very important to have the correct grade. The following site shows this:

each car manufacturer has recommended grades of Automatic Transmission Fluid, BMW is no exception. the following website for BMWs may bring you more accurate data:

Apparently CTSC is the supplier for BMWs via the web.
Generally auto gearboxes have drain plugs and filler plugs to enable oil change in routine maintenance. But I would definately go back to the garage where you had the last service and ask politely about the grade of ATF used, before considering an 'oil change'.
Good Luck

You need to be a bit more specific when describing your problem. By "not getting any gears" do you mean (A) the shift lever will not move into position to select a gear?, or (B) shifts into gear position, but does not move? For (A), try reverse (it is not synchronized); Do you get a grinding of gears sound when you try to engage it? If so, this sounds like a problem with the hydraulic clutch release system. If it gets low on fluid, it will not release enough to let you put it in gear. top off the reservoir(tiny 1/2 cup sized one on driver side fender under hood below and to the right of the brake master cylinder) and frantically pump the clutch pedal about 100 times (that\'s right, 100!)
If the tranny goes into gear but the vehicle won\'t move, this sounds like either the clutch disc is worn too thin to grab, or something is broken in the driveline. Try locking the hubs and putting it into 4WD and see if it moves then. If so, then the rear wheel driveline or driveshaft has a problem. Good luck!

Hi threre.
Have no idea about the cost but check the oil in the gearbox and also make sure you put the right oil grade in. If the oil level is right you might have a problem with the syncro. The cost depends on the damage. Good luck

I have to move very slow in the begining. Today the ldv decided not to move.The ldv has only 102000km. Any ideas what could it be?

Change your gearbox oil, and clean out the oil strainer.
Should help.

( On some models, you have to remove the gearbox oil pan to clean the strainer )

I think he's referring to the valve body which is the hydraulic part of the gearbox assembly. Can only replace it.
