2012 DS5 2.0 HDi Automatic gearbox oil

Post by Razvanspt »

Hello guys,

I'm new to this forum and I came here for some help.
I got pretty confused with the automatic transmission oil that I plan to flush.
I was thinking about Aisin oil brand.(just because is the same producer as for the gearbox, no other reason).

Every car parts website in my country when I do search for transmission oil for my car, gives me Aisin Premium ATM, which says it is AW1/JWS3309, which I read in some post here that JWS3309 is not recommended. Read this in this topic :
viewtopic.php?t=64800

I've also asked what other people have used and said they used Aisin ATF 6+ FE that is JWS3324.

Also, if you think that there would be a better brand for fluid please do tell me as I'm now biased with Aisin.

So from those above which is the right one?

I've seen that posting the vin number helps, so here it is : VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]

Hi, and :welc: to the Forum. I cannot offer any advise on which fluid to use, but it won't take too long for somebody to let you know exactly what fluid you need.

Hi. Your vehicle is Euro 5 compliant and you have an AM6C, so do not use JWS3324 - that is only for the Euro 4 vehicles on the earlier gearboxes. You need AW-1 oil (or equivalent specification) for a Euro 5 engine.

Hi, and thanks for your reply.
The thing is that I know that it needs AW-1 oil, the problem is that all oils that match my car are also 'advertised as JWS3324 OR JWS3309 together to the AW-1, that is why I am not sure which one to choose.

For example I'm looking to buy this type of oil :

Thank you :)

As long as it is compatible with Aisin AW-1 you should be fine - it's just that you can't put the older Euro 4 oil in the newer boxes.

Here's one that does the lot and Febi are a good make too:
