    Default 407 AL6 transmission fluid

    Hi All, I'm wanting to do a ATF change in my 407 just because it is over 100000km now and has never been done. I look at it as preventative maintenance. I shifts great and I have no problems with it but it is now 7 years old and with the mileage I think it would be a job well done. Having read many a horror story with the use of the wrong trans fluid I want to get it right. In view of the expense of the Total fluid, which only seems to be available from a Pug dealer, I was wondering if there is a more economical alternative. I got in touch with my local oil and filter guy and he suggested the fully synthetic Penrite ATF FS but thought I would ask in the forum before doing anything more.
    My 407 hasn't missed a beat since the leak back lines and nozzels where replaced on the injectors just after I bought it. And now after putting 8000km on it, it is returning just under 7 litres per 100km as an average. Have seen 4.8/100km on a run down the freeway which I reckon is fantastic. Loving the car and its a pleasure to drive.
    Thanks in advance for any replies, cheers Steve

    Do you mean AM6? If so, here is the info for the box as fitted in Citroens - http://service.citroen.com/dtt/CDP/d...idange_am6.pdf. The fluid is JWS 3309 ESSO, and you might find it cheaper at a Toyota dealer. Another how-to, a bit clearer, but also in French, is at https://www.fichier-pdf.fr/2013/05/2...idange-bva.pdf

    Search the forum for previous discussions, it has come up before.

    As an aside, Total oils are easily obtained in Brisbane, have a chat to Onshore Oil, http://www.onshoreoils.com.au/


    [ps] I found this online - http://www.gllubricants.com/index.ph...w&id=175&pid=6 $10 for just under a litre.

    Sorry to be a pain Seasink, but is the Mobil 3309 ok to use in the AM6 transmission or should I be looking for a fully synthetic oil? cheers Steve.

    The PSA document says "huile JWS 3309 ESSO de couleur rouge" and Esso is a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil.

    Mobil's website claims that it is JWS 3309 - Mobil Super? ATF 3309 | Automatic Transmission Fluid | Mobil? Canada

    The AM6 gearbox is actually an Aisin TF-80SC, used as well by Ford, Landrover, Mazda, Saab, and Volvo. It is Japanese made and uses a special Japanese spec fluid made by Esso.

    Husky430 your auto is the same as mine (Asin AM6) you need a JWS3309 spec oil, the cheapest I found was Toyota's T-1V. follow the instructions I posted in the link below.

    Did my AM6 V6 (140 K kms) some 6 months ago with Supercheap Auto Chief Mochician Multi ATF .

    I used two 4 litre drums in two flushes

    After 4 months/ 5000 kms, no more jerky / banging changes downs.
