Transmission Fluid Change


Hi has anyone chnaged their transmission fluid before? (1992 Manual C4)

I am assuming it's just a drain plug on the manaul, asked one garage and they thought it might have to be flushed/pumped etc. (think that might be for autos)

I know I can find out the type of fluid the manual would recommed, but would there be a modern day equivalent that is better?

Any help appreciated

Cheers

Richard

Re: Transmission Fluid Change


For the ZF 6 speed ...

TRANSMISSION OIL (status)  -  Vascular flow of oil through the porous Phosphorus-bronze (Pb) material of each synchronizer is essential for effective British Thermal Unit (BTU) heat exchange occurrence. Frequent transmission oil changes will ensure lower Pb particle levels suspended in the oil. The ZF S6-40 6-speed transmission is lubricated by engine type oil. Manufacturer recommendations specify the use of GM P/N 1052931 (5w-30) or BMW P/N 07510009420 (10w-60) oil.
Approximate oil capacity of the ZF S6-40 is 2.2 quarts.
FYI - the BMW 10w-60 oil is fully-synthetic and is used in the BMW M5 engine.

Yes there's a drain plug and I refilled with the BMW spec Castrol.
