hello Sir

I hope you can identify the location of the dip stick for the automatic gearbox for oil check.

Now remove the dip stick, through the hole of the dip stick pipe by use of a funnel top up any amount of automatic fluid / ATF you wish to add but remember to check the level of oil when the engine is idling in park position.

 

thanks

and if I want to change the 9.4 litres it all goes down the dipstick tube??

is there no hole in the side of the gearbox? I can see 2 bolts with widened heads that donet seem to do anything

the gearbox plate reads "ATCO Corp,  UK011,  6757366

hello

when you over fill and you what to reduce the oil level without opening the drain plug.

there is a over fill screw on the left hand side of the gear box you open to reduce the level without opening the drain plug.

thanks

hello madam

 

Refill the 9.4L as the manual says through the dip stick tube and confirm the level.

we only use the overfill screw when we over fill but right now that's not the case , we know the right quantity taken ok.

thanks
