    P38 ZF Auto oil spec/brand

    Time for Auto trans oil & filter, spec is dextron 3, just wondering if there are any preferences or if there is a synthetic for this,

    cheers

    I use Fuchs 4400 , but you could also use penrite ATF/ fs, both are miscible with standard dex3 as you'll only get around 5 litres of the 9.5 litres total out with a standard oil / filter change.

    I use Castrol transmax Z in my D2 and also used it in my RRC 91. My RRC auto was excellent at 240KK and my D2 is excellent at 190KK..

    Transmax Z is approved by ZF and recommended for use in heavy duty applications.

    It is expensive at $95 approx. for 4 litres, but hey a lot cheaper than a rebuild.

    I wouldn't bother if the car has been neglected over a high mileage as autos are dying from the day they first turn.

    Supercheap no longer stock it but Repco does and you can sometimes get it 30% off.

    Thanks Fellas,

    i had some Dex 3 sitting around so I've dropped the pan and also changed the filter, I will change the fluid once more with the Dex 3 to hopefull flush it and later change to one of the recommends fluids.

    pain in the but doing in on the ground, thank god for the lift kit
