    Default 308 Auto Transmission Pan Leak

    Hello Brains Trust, Have been advised that our Peugeot 308 HDI has a leaking auto transmision pan and will need to be re-sealed and oil replaced. Special selant quoted at $92.00 and oil at $600.00 (4 litres at $150.00 per litre!!!) Can anyone recommend an alternative, and much cheaper, oil? Is it a special type of oil that is needed? Looking forward to hearing advice, Thanks, Manda.

    Good grief. Is it out of warranty?

    Yes, bought March 2009 and has just done 80,000km. No visible drips on garage floor so must be an extremely small leak or drips don't occur??

    Are the service agents "fishing" for work?

    If it is the six speed auto (AKA AM6, more correctly AWTF-80 SC), your official fluid is 9980.D4 (two litre container) and this is $300, give or take a few cents.

    Alternative transmission fluid debates are a staple of car forums. The same gearbox is used in Alfas, Volvos, possibly other marques.

    I'd be surprised if you can't find a fluid at $35/litre or better, that said if you car is not visibly leaking fluid the whole thing is a bit odd!

    Unsure about the 6 speeds... it's an HDI SW XSE turbo. Have been told the 9980.D4 is the official oil. Considering no visible leaks, they may well be fishing for work! They also told us at a previous service that the fuel additive bladder was very low and needed replacing. Bought one that was much cheaper than they quoted and on replacement found there was quite a bit of fluid still in the old bladder. Man about the house will have to put the car up on ramps and have a good look underneath at the transmission pan. Thanks for help Addo.

    Have looked in manual, it's a 6 speed gearbox so the oil above won't be suitable. Thanks anyway.

    Assuming you have a Euro 4 (emissions standard) vehicle, the correct part number is indeed 9980 D4 and is described as "JWS 3309" by Peugeot.

    Esso ATF 3309 is a product that meets JWS 3309. It has recently been replaced by Mobil ATF 3309. It is also known as Toyota ATF Type T-IV.

    Esso ATF 3309 - product data sheet

    I imagine one would save lots of money by purchasing it from a Toyota dealer, instead of a Peugeot or Citroen dealer.

    ...

    Vehicles that meet Euro 5 emissions standard use a different oil, with a different part number (9734 R7) and is described as "AW-1", which I've yet to find an equivalent of.
