Gearbox oil replacement
Just before the UK had its snowfall 3 weeks ago, I was jetting off to France for a ski holiday. That Friday night I got up at 3am to the airport, it didnt snow but got down to about minus 6....well, the liquid crystal display ont he dash didnt even wake up until it warmed up in the cabin!
When i tried to drive away however, the gearbox was acting as if i had filled it with mud.. the car struggled to move, the gear change was like stirring tar and generally kept the revs very low and gently eased the car into driving in such conditions! Once warme dup it was fine but the gear oil had clearly frozen.
So, with this in mind, next 'freeze' I want to be prepared.
What gearbox oil weight does the alfa take? Im going to go for some high end Amsoil synthetic
