Re: How To Change The Manual Gearbox Oil On Most Renault Models(With Pictures)
Thanks for this brilliant guide. Quick question though, I see everyone talking about 75w80
. Does it have to be exactly 75w80? For example will 75w90 work just as well? As far as I understand it, this is to do with the operating temps at which the
is most effective, so 75w90 would be the same as 75w80 when cold, but works better as temp increases? Is that right?
My issue is the gearstick is almost impossible to move side to side when the engine is cold. I have to grab it with both hands and in neutral move it side to side a good few times to loosen it up before I can even get it into first. It moves up and down fine (first to second, third to fourth) but it's the sideways movement that's a big problem.
