How much and type of gear box oil do I have to use in my mk4 golf, 1.6 litre engine transmission( gearbox)


Mark 4 VW Golf Manual Gearbox
VW has a specific blend of gear oil for that gearbox that you need to buy from VW dealer Parts department. If you cannot get it there, you can use a 75w-90 fully synthetic automotive gear oil .

The capacity is about 2.2 quarts (US) so ensure you buy enough.

If you are changing the gear oil yourself the vehicle must be level. Completely loosen or remove the fill plug first, to ensure you will be able to refill it ,before you remove the drain plug and drain the old oil out of the box. You will need a fluid pump in order to pump the new oil into the box and you keep adding the gear oil until it begins to run out the fill opening. It is full when it stops running out the fill opening so it is important the vehicle is level when you are doing this service.

You will need a good 17 mm Allen key to remove and refit the drain and fill plugs in the gearbox.
The fill plug is on the front left side of the transmission case while the drain plug is on the bottom by the dog bone.

Gear box oil level


there should be 2 oil plugs. One will be on the bottom of the gear box and one will be somewhere on the side of the gear box. The one on the side is your fill location. Open and remove that plug and fill it with the proper fluid just till it starts to come out the side of the hole.
that is all you need to do

Where do you check the gear oil in the rear?


The rear end gear box usually has fill plug about 1/3 of the way up the gear box housing. The gear oil is usually filled to the bottom side of the plug. In other words, if you were to try to add gear oil, you would stop when the oil starts to spill back out of the plug hole.

I have civic with 1.3 16v engine.what is the best gear box oil,and how much liters do i need


There is no best gear box oil, only the correct gear oil.
Buy it from Honda and the parts guy will tell how much
you will need. I assume you have a manual transmission
so fill it till it's level with the fill hole. This is just a guess,
about 2 liters.

I'm trying to check the transmission fluid in my 1996 nissan pickup with a manual 5 speed/4wheel drive. The only plug I find is only about 3 inches up off the bottom. My question is, Where is the fill hole...


This asian Car has no dipstick on transmission / gear box. Instead, it has two holes bottom and upper bolts. The lower bolt is the drain plug and the latter is filling bolt. How we know the filling level then? Just tighten your drain plug and fill it with gear oil until it going flooded a bit. Then tighten your filling plug.

TOP UP AUTOMATIC GEAR BOX OIL


Looks like you have a leaks problem in your gear box. You'll need a clean hand pump to top up your oil. Make sure your pump is clean. In your gear box, there should be 2 ports ( fill and drain). Filling port located upper position while drain is lower.
Inject your oil and check your deep stick after run your engine for minutes. Repeat those steps till you get normal level of oil. Never exceed max level of your gear oil.

How do i check the transmission fluid


transmission fluid you can check easy way the gear box is one oil to be so you can see in the middle of the gear box filling plug remove that with spanner if you see oil coming from hole that is fine you don't put more just putted back and tight. if you don't see any oil just use your finger front part through if the front part of your finger touch the oil that is also fine means ok. but is the oil is very low from that place you must fill.
To get the level if you fill the oil you stop filling when you see oil is draining so you wait until oil stop clean the aria then you fixed back the filling plug or bolt tight.

that is my advice sorry any mistake of my tipping.
