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.

Where to changer or check gear oil on 2002 vstar classis 650


The gear oil is the final drive oil - on the back wheel it's the hub assembly that the drive shaft ties into. There's a bolt at the top of it for filling and one at the bottom to drain. You should drive the bike a little to warm the oil, then you can drain the oil through that lower plug. I usually open the filler one on top while draining and I pour some fresh gear oil in to kind of flush it. Then install and tighten the drain plug. Fill with fresh oil right to the top of the filler plug. Some drain plugs are magnetic to pickup metal debris (normal) so clean that off when you have it out.

Hi, I have a 1999 V Star 650. I cannot find any info on how to change the final gear oil. Also, I have read that your suppose to remove two drain plugs, front and rear, for an oil change, is this true?


The final gear oil is part of the crank case oil. The bike's transmission and engine are unitized. You do need to remove both drain plugs because the oil becomes compartmentalized and will not completely drain without doing it.

Gear oil change


Somewhere on the bottom or bottom outside edge of the gearbox is a drain plug. Drain the oil and put the plug back in place. Somewhere on the top of the gearbox casing, including the left and right outer case covers, you will find a dipstick for checking the oil level. Fill via the dipstick hole. Some bikes don't have an actual dipstick but only have a top plug. Normally you will find it near the kick starter lever. When no dipstick is provided, they expect you to drain the old oil and then re-fill with the amount of oil specified for the bike. Use 10w40 motor oil. NEVER use synthetic oils. They can screw up the clutch.

98 mirage manual gearbox where is ,filler and drain plugs


raise your car. make sure you have jack stand and use them before you crawl underneath.

go under your transmission and look for a hexagonal nut or plug at the very bottom of the transmission or gear box.
that is the drain plug. it is very tight , i warn you.

then after you drain all the oil, replace it and tighten it too.

then look for almost the same size of bolt at the side of the transmission or gear box.

this is the fill hole and at the same time the full hole plug.
if the new oil that you are putting in is already over flowing out of the hole, put back the plug right away because that is the full level already.

you can use a hose that would fit just through the hole and insert it to your new gear oil. then let it pass trough gravity towards the gear box.

tnx 4 using fixya,
