Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Not a Saab but....

What gearbox oil for an unmodified 2001 Honda CRV 2.0 manual gearbox. No off road use but the gearlever gets a hard time when my wife drives it.

Hi

Hondas take the same as a Saab manual, a 75w-80 and the best proven options are the Red Line MTL or Fuchs Sintofluid. The Millers TRX 75w-80, Valvoline and Motul Motylgear are good alternatives.

Cheers

Hi

It takes an oil that meets the JWS3309 spec, such as Mobil ATF 3309, Fuchs ATF 4400, Millers SPIII or Castrol ATF Multivehicle.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-1432-atf-au ... -cars.aspx

It takes 7L from empty, so I guess about 4-5L for a service.

Cheers

Tim

Hi

I would use a 5w-40 synthetic in the engine.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS/CFS NT, Motul Sport/300V, Red Line and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XF Longlife, Fuchs GT1 XTL/Supersyn, Gulf Formula G/ULE, Shell Helix and Mobil Super 3000 are good, cheaper alternatives.

You need an MTF for the gearbox and the best proven options are the Red Line MTL or Fuchs Sintofluid. The Millers TRX 75w-80, Valvoline and Motul Motylgear are good alternatives.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-670-75w-80-75w-85-mtfs.aspx

Cheers

Tim

Hi Tim. Apparently you are the man to ask ☺

My folks have 4 vehicles. Nothing of great value but all much loved. They all petrol and all low mileage. They include ...

1994 Mazda MX6 2.5
2004 Jag S Type 2.5
2004 Mazda RX8 192ps
2006 Peugeuot 307CC 2.0

Is it ok to use a fully synthetic oil in a semi synthetic oil vehicle or even in a non synthetic oil vehicle??.
Is there a grade that would be ok for all or at least all except RX8 as i appreciate bit more specialised??

Hi

A 5w-30 is ideal for all of them, apart from the 307. The Fuchs XTR 5w-30 is very well proven in the RX-8 as well as being a good option for the other 2.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-653-5w-30.aspx

Fuchs Pro S, Motul 300V and Red Line are the best options, followed by the Castrol Edge, Mobil ESP, Millers EE and XF, Fuchs GT1 and Shell Helix Ultra ECT.

Cheers

Tim

Hi Tim,
Saab 1.9 TiD
'09 plate 9-5
6 speed manual
110k miles
normal road driving
car standard - no mods
Would appreciate advice on which gearbox oil to replace and quantity required - have a very slight noise from transmission when backing off the throttle like when approaching a roundabout - noise disappears if I dip the clutch or put it in neutral. No noise under acceleration only on over run. Thinking it could be thrust bearing or input shaft bearing. Just want to change g/box oil to see if it helps, thanks

^ 5 or 6 gear manual Paul? 5 gear takes 1.9l, 6 gear 2.4 if I remember correct.

MTF0063 is the genuine Saab/Vauxhall oil in it and it's normally what I stick with. Alternatively the post above you from Tim lists the oils compatible with both the manual 5/6 gearboxes (same gearboxes petrol or diesel).

Oh yeah that would help wouldn't it-mine is 6-speed manual :oops: I had looked at the reply before mine but just wanted to make sure petrol and diesel boxes held the same quantity. Thanks for your guidance again Pete :wink:

Thanks for that, my data just lists one capacity for the gearbox and doesn't mention if it's 5 or 6 speed.

Cheers

Tim
