Auto gearbox oil in a selespeed box....
Would putting auto gearbox oil in a selespeed gearbox cause problems ???
About 1500-2000 miles ago, I changed the gearbox oil on my 156 selespeed, as the selespeed system was leaking fluid into the gearbox, the old gearbox fluid was black grimmey and smelly. the new stuff I put in is a nice golden colour.
Ive solved the leaky selespeed system, and thought I'd better change the gearbox oil again, just to remove any selespeed oil contamination that may be left in the box. the fluid that came out was a murky pink colour. I am thinking along the line that the previous owner may have put auto trans fluid into the gearbox.......
