gearbox/clutch oil

Posted this in the 155 forum but just thought I'd get your opinions also.

Thinking of doing a gearbox oil change as the gears are starting to get stiff. What brand and compound(synthetic/semi, 75w90) would you use? Also in the 155 the same reservoir is used for brake and clutch oil I think so does that mean brakes and clutch use the same fluid?

Ya the brakes and clutch use the same fluid.

Gearbox oil Valvoline as Dave what weight was used. Savage stuff and cheap too incomparison to the redline robber of oil. I know I have used it.

Try artane autos on the malahide road as they sell the valvoline gear oil which is top notch stuff and as you will see they are Alfa men sure one of them might appear out before you even get out of the car if you pull up in the 155

Valvoline from Artane motors it is so. Must double check but I think the manual says 75w80/90

Yep Valvoline is the **** Way better than Redline and over half the price of the redline gear and twice as good.

Just ask the lads in there as they have 155s themselves as the grade in the manual may have changed due to the synth stuff now
