    Default XM Transmision Fluid

    Hi,

    Advertisement


    This has probably been covered but, I did a search and came up with nothing....

    Can someone let me know what fluid I should be using in my 2000 XM ZF auto box?

    thanks

    Warren

    The link I provided for George 1/8 includes some references to the correct fluid.

    Haynes manual doesn't help. The factory manual states that they they are supposed to be sealed for life but, give a citroen "part number" so, probably have to go with the Citroen oil.
    Just a note on Haynes manuals - they don't seem to know that the 3L V6 exists - totally bloody useless....

    Haynes does say its manual does not include the V6. The Peter Russek manual does include the V6, but the earlier PRV, not the later ES9J4 as in yours. You might be able to find a Haynes manual for a relevant Peugeot. But I would start with Addo's link.

    Corrigendum: A couple of the link's pages are currently "dead" (at least when I click on them) so the oil is recommended as LT71141 - which can be bought from Esso/Mobil wholesalers in the boxy 20 litre drums. This is cheaper than the "genuine" fluid.

    Many have good results with high quality all-synthetic products from other suppliers. I've run Transmax Z in mine without a worry but more recently used LT71141 as it was closer to hand and quite affordable.

    Thanks Addo.
    I have the Peter Russek Manual as well as the factory manual. The haynes manual is good for electrics because it has the diagrams broken down into simpler sections.

    I have been using Castrol Transmax M for the last 50.000 + kms as per posts by David S from some while ago.
    this may only be semi synthetic? Dont nkow
    And perhaps there is something better now but I am very satisfied so far At 130.000kms
    whatever was in it before must have cooked because it would hang on to gears worse in hot weather.
    no problem since switching.

    Transmax M is Dexron IID ... which is the fluid for 4HP14/4HP18 .... I think the later gearboxes use a different fluid
