G'day all,
Just picked up a 2006 Adventra (Alloytech / 5spd auto) and want to change all the oils (searched the forum without result). I have no dramas with doing the change myself. The rear diff is easy but I'm struggling to find the drain / fill plugs for the front diff, t/fer case and auto. What do I need to do (removal of cowls etc) to change the engine oil filter?

Anyone able to flick me a quick reply detailing the locations etc would be great.
Cheers
nt
:thumbsup:

the front diff is to the left side of the sump i believe it has a 24mm plug at the top of it, drain plug at the bottom

use castrol SAF-XA oil in it, approx 800ml of oil goes in it


transfer case it at the back of the transmission, make sure the car is level, remove the fill plug roughly in the middle to lowerside of the transfer case, remove that, than on the front at the bottom, remove the plug there thats the drain,

you have to buy the oil from holden as its an special synthestic oil, im guessing rather expenive too, its called "ESSO MTF-LT-1" you will need approx 150ml of it,


transmission, ill post up later, busy at the moment

Is it safe to use an Engine Cleaner on the Alloytec motor when changing your engine oil? If so, which is the best to use. About to change the oil myself for the first time in the Adventra since her warranty ran out and don't want to wreck it LOL
Any help is greatly appreciated.
