    Default Motorsport Fluids

    I need to order some fluids for the car this week. The problem lies in the fact i have no idea what quantities i need. Some can anyone here help me out. If giving an educated guess, please round the number up generously as i dont want to left short.

    Car in question : Citroen Xsara mk3 VTS Coupe.
    for peugeot enthusiasts it is just a GTi-6 motor with a S16 Gearbox on a 306 chassis with a candy shell.

    * How much brake fluid do i need for a full flushing. Include expected wastage.
    * How much power steering fluid will i need

    * gearbox oil sussed
    * engine oil sussed
    * coolant i'll mix up as required.

    plus what else should i be wary of before i thrash the phuck out of it on a race circuit. Tyres and diff should be on by then.

    Thanks for that Alan, i have placed the order and now to sit back and wait.

    By the way i have decided to get the Neo Synthetic range of products just to see how good they are. They have everything from oils, greases and coolants through to brake and pwr steering fluid.

    jude, are we all going for a drive around the Lobethal Circuit or has that idea been canned. I'll pick it up on Sunday afternoon if that is alright. I'll ring you before i come over

    qd180 i'm pretty sure you need only around 600-700 mL's, but intended to fully flush the system. This involves significant wastage through emptying and then having to refill whilst bleeding air from each brake line.
