2ltr Petrol Auto, 6th months MoT...Zero rust...a few scrapes and a wing is dented. Auto Box reportedly "slips into neutral", well it didn't on the drive home :)

It really does drive very well indeed.

Yes it is a 3 times in fairly fast succession job...

A couple of gallons should do it I reckon...

Remember it must be DEX II mineral ATF and not anything that claims to be compatible...

That looks OK Alasdair...

If that's part number 0175 then it'll be good..

Else, try this Comma one as that can be very reasonably priced too..

reports have it a certain make of truck uses it, and up the road is a truck mechanic who "happens to have" 12ltrs in his workshop.

How much driving does it need between drains ?

So it was out if warranty quite a few years before they built it, or even released the Xantia.
