    Hi Sherman,

    As far as I'm aware, the Xantia V6 has a ZF 4HP20 gearbox.

    If you search the forum for 4HP20, you should find numerous threads explaining the procedure.

    Originally they came with a very small dipstick, but this was deleted on newer models.

    As per most autos, you will only be able to replace a few litres at a time, versus the full capacity of 7 litres or so.
    Regards,

    Simon

    That sounds very much like the manual gearbox figure.

    If you want a purely technical answer, the 4HP20 contains between 7.7 and 8.3 litres, with a draining capacity of between 2.7 and 3 litres.

    You probably won't find that in the owner's handbook.

    If you'd like a link to a more technical book (the mechanic's handbook) look at this link:

    Nice to see a good news story about an automatic! Pretty poor performance, 300K!!

    I'm not sure I'd dare touch it.

    Thanks guys
    I am replacing the oil as "sealed for life" begs a few questions
    The hand book must be wrong
    They are only machines
    Cheers
