Full Version: Gearbox Oil
Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > General Forums > Maintenance / Servicing / MOT Discussions
Is it possible to change your gearbox oil yourself as I know when they do it in a garage they do it while on a ramp, I'm wondering as first gear is sometimes abit stiff and was wondering if it's because it needs more or nice clean oil. Thanks in advance
There will be a plug on the side of the gearbox for filling and usually a plug or plate on the bottom for draining.
Not sure of the exact layout having never needing to look myself.
You just refill with gearbox oil until it starts to run back out of the fill hole.
Using my phone so I don't know what engine you have but if it's the ib5 box there is no drain, you need to suck the oil out
Certainly a DIY job on the drive way
Been fixing cars since 1966 and never have I ever changed the gearbox oil except on a Mini where the engine and gearbox oil are shared.
